A COVID Conspiracy Theory that makes sense

The Pandemic so far: The first 160 plus days of the Covid19 Pandemic have been rough (especially for NYers in early going). It isn’t just from the actual bad news. The day-to-day life under shelter-in-place has been unpleasant, especially here in the city. It’s been depressing to note how many people in my part of […]

‘Muricans are STOOPID

I’ve spent over two weeks watching in awe as Americans get in fights over wearing face masks to protect from COVID19 virus infection. You don’t need to concentrate on the math compiled on this site to know that the US is unquestionably the worst when it comes to dealing with the pandemic. As I’ve posted […]

Heading for 10 C increase–from Kevin Hester

This is from my friend Kevin Hester–video and text from climate experts in the EU. Things looking even worse than the people predicting it have been saying. His article begins: “John Doyle is a long time EU staffer stationed in Brussels. Stuart Scott was asked to make a ‘reality-check’ presentation to UN aid agencies with […]

Marking six figures of death in COVID19

I’m following the daily COVID19 casualties totals being tabulated by a number of health groups including the WHO and Johns Hopkins. As of this minute (10 am on May 16), the US has had 1,487,077 cases of COVID19, of which 88,603 people have died. Another 328,000 cases have ‘closed’–the patient got better (though there appear […]

COVID19 shows us why we can’t survive global warming

Greta Thunberg, from FB page. Greta Thunberg, my favorite 17 year old truth teller , is alone among punditry in voicing some obvious truths that apply to both the Corona19 virus and global warming in general. Long story short, she suspects she’s been infected with the coronavirus. She wrote about it here: The last two […]

Crossing the 2 C mark

We should have known this was coming, but we’ve all been rather busy. Several weeks ago, I found this notice on my FB wall, courtesy of Sam Carana. For those of you just joining us, I’ve frequently printed Carana’s projections about the future increases in temperature that would lead to more melting of the Arctic […]

Coronavirus versus global dimming

The above information came my way a couple days ago in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak. The chart came to my attention because it was claimed to be authoritative about the virus. The information is cross-referenced here: https://rentry.co/covid-19-is-not-like-the-flu As I type this, NYC has found its second patient today. The fiftysomething male individual infected […]

Nature Bats Last speaks to Dr. Paul Ehrlich

If you’re not familiar with the Nature Bats Last Podcast (and you’re paying attention to climate issues), you should be. Dr Guy McPherson (and co-host Kevin Hester) interviewed Dr. Paul Ehrlich, the man who became famous for telling the world about the Population Bomb. Ehrlich was just back from Australia and the sites of the […]

2014 Warnings from “The Newsroom”

I know, I decided I wasn’t going to post after awhile. But I lied. This might be of interest to you. And if you are reading the tea leaves, this shouldn’t be news. This all reflects back on an episode of the HBO series THE NEWSROOM from 2014. Not coincidentally, it was the first interview […]
