“The Paris Agreement will see the planet burn”

This is mostly a regurgitation of a bunch of other people’s work (specifically, props to the folks at Democracy NOW, who haven’t been distracted by other news during the COP21 meeting). I don’t know whether to be relieved or saddened that many of the information dumps coming out of the COP21 Paris meeting are confirming the […]

Don’t know much about AGW–EXXON KNEW

This is a series I’ve posted in from time to time. The point of the title (‘don’t know much about….’) is meant to highlight a subject that I’ve found to be generally misunderstood or not part of the general knowledge of most people. The inspiration for the series was Kenneth C Davis‘ DON’T KNOW MUCH […]

New York’s grid is broken (long-ish)

For the better part of nine years, I’ve been a really self-righteous individual when it comes to automobiles–my household didn’t have one, we didn’t need one. But on Saturday, we’ll be going to a fleet sale for a rental company and we may well come home with a vehicle.

“Faster than Previously Expected”–a fun Google Game!

He’s a longtime activist out of Kiwi Land, and he has been instrumental in getting out the message about climate calamity (specifically near term extinction) in his part of the world. Back in March, he conducted a little experiment on the old Google Machine. He typed something into Google’s search block […]

Hitting peak oil twice

US Oil production hit its first peak around 1970, when we were getting 10 million barrels a day of our beloved dead dinosaur juice out of the ground and ocean drilling platforms. […]

Lies we tell ourselves about climate change

There’s an article I’ve been looking at recently from Resilience dot org, and it weighs in heavily against Liberals–yes LIBERALS–about  the issue of global warming. Resilience is the website put up by people who are in the Peak Oil movement. The theory of Peak Oil has taken an undeserved shellacking of late, what with presidential bromides about […]

HERE’S THE FARKIN’ PROBLEM–An Earth Day rant

This was what Teed me off this AM. As my pals spend their days protesting about Earth Day(I attended the BP protest Monday AM and I’m still waiting for my clothes to dry), the marketing geniuses of the industrial world seize upon the meme of environmentalism to SELL MORE CRAP. Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty […]
