Fukushima 2015, still nothing to see

A meme that appeared on my news feed this AM, courtesy of D’un Renard of the Rainbow Warriors (a FaceBook group following all things related to Nuclear power): As usual, I wanted to check the veracity of the statement. It’s verified (in a roundabout way) by the Guardian. The Guardian article is mainly about the […]

Carolyn Baker on WBCR’s Sex and Politics

On Friday’s edition of Sex and Politics, I spoke to Carolyn Baker about climate collapse and personal spiritual healing. Dr. Baker was an adjunct professor of history and psychology for 11 years and a psychotherapist in private practice for 17 years. She was an associate and colleague of the late Michael C Ruppert, and has been writing […]

Sex and Politics welcomes back Karl Grossman

This Friday on Sex and Politics, I’ll be talking to our friend Karl Grossman, an award-winning journalist who’s covered issues around nuclear power since the 1970’s. We’ll be talking about Fukushima–specifically, what we aren’t hearing ever since the Japanese government started prosecuting journalists for covering the controversies around the accident.  Insiders are reporting that the […]

Appeal filed for Transform Now Plowshares seeks reversal of convictions

Originally posted on Transform Now Plowshares:
Two years after Megan Rice, Greg Boertje-Obed and Michael Walli entered the Y12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge, TN to issue an indictment against the continuing production of nuclear weapons components there and to oppose plans for a multi-billion dollar Uranium Processing Facility which would produce thermonuclear cores…

They DON’T plan to tell us

For those of you joining late, several weeks ago, authorities in Russia were taken aback to find that a giant hole had appeared in a field in Siberia. Latest news from the climate front–TWO MORE LARGE HOLES have appeared in the Siberian tundra.  One has been around since last September–noticed by the locals, but not reported. […]

Father Carl Kabat celebrates Fourth of July

How did you spend your Fourth of July? Father Carl Kabat, an 80 year old priest who has spent some 17 years in prison for protesting against war and weapons, spent the Fourth of July spattering red paint across a sign at a Kansas City plant just opened. He is spending this weekend in jail as […]

People’s Climate March: an antidote to despair

  If you’ve been following me here, you know that I’ve put out some… dystopian commentary lately. Some progressive news sources have finally become aware of Guy McPherson’s dire predictions about irreversible climate collapse. If you believe the climatologists that McPherson has been writing about, we’re a few decades from extinction for the clever ape. Of […]

Hi Fukushima, nothing to see here, move on…

Is everybody getting tired of me posting about this again? I am. But since nobody else is doing this (and by ‘nobody’, I mean none of those paid media guys at the ‘news networks’ busy telling us crap like this matters. Okay, maybe this matters. Nope? what about this?) I feel some responsibility here. At […]

Whatever happened to the peace movement?

Today was Tax day, so it was also War Tax Day. As I reported a few days ago, the venerable War Resisters League tax day protest kicked off in front of the IRS offices at 110 West 44th Street.  It’s the largest anti-war protest I’ve seen in awhile–and that’s part of the problem.  I don’t […]

The Hubbert Slope–a new monologue play

If you search my blog, you will see more than a few posts on the subject of Peak Oil. In some cases, the Peak Oil discussion is tangential (but crucial) to something else I’m blogging about. For much of the past eight years, I’ve been reading the work of people like James Howard Kunstler, Richard […]
