Is Trump a ‘doomer’?

If you read more than a few of the 700+ articles posted here, you know I am a follower of the work of Dr. Guy McPherson, a scientist who has argued that we humans have scant time left on the planet (actually, not just humans, but put that aside for the moment). McPherson has been […]

Two Russians who saved the world

From Jeanette de Beauvoir: The man who saved the world… 50 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear […]

Meet the new boss–Biden’s road to war

What a difference a year makes… especially if you’re the president NOW. From one year ago. If you don’t remember, I wrote about a little problem with Syria when Biden was still Obama’s vice president. It was after Trump was elected. You can find it here: https://brooklynculturejammers.com/2016/11/30/turkey-invades-syria/ You might want to also look at the […]

End Stage capitalism in Texas

It was five years ago that I took this topic on for the first time. Louisiana was going through a series of huge storms and hundred year floods. And the people in charge of the state (and FEMA) were tired of going broke. They were spending big money every few years to rebuild the low-value […]

Methane–from Planet Phuckett!!

As some might remember, my play PLANET PHUCKETT!! was web-cast last month. I wasn’t completely happy with the results (who KNEW making films was so hard???) and I’ve started a project to re-do it. This is a segment of the original video and it explains why methane is a threat of extinction in the near […]

The IPCC weighs in on extinction.

Remember–I’m the simple artist. This is from a report two years ago that escaped my notice. Fair warning—I’m not a credentialed scientist. I wrote a play about near term human extinction in 2016 that has been performed in the US and now has been screened by a theatre in a video festival that in non-COVID […]

Trump isn’t our last president

I know, I got it wrong Well, I’ve rarely been as happy to be proven wrong, but Trump left DC on January 20th, just as he was supposed to. I was surprised, and apparently I’m not the only one. The Trump acolytes were ready to commit a mass act of sedition in order to keep […]

Interview about me

Since five or six of you who read my blog don’t know me personally, a writer named Tom Inniss at The VOICE sent me a long questionnaire as part of the online festival at The Space. Tom Inniss seems to be a nice sort, and I dutifully filled the questionnaire out and TA DA! now […]

Zuck strikes again

The fact that these suggestions are at worst not beneficial and at best might prevent COVID19 (or at least make an infection less severe) say something about the editorial stance of Facebook. This was a friend’s post that FB decided could not be shared with membership. The person who posted it was sharing knowledge that […]

Five reasons to not vote GOP

I don’t know why this isn’t an issue every four years. Because EVERY FOUR YEARS, The GOP and the Dems square off to get a president elected, and every four years somewhere around 50% of American voters forget recent history. There have been five elected Republican presidents since Eisenhower stepped down. Every one has left […]
