So my angst was poked today by a question on Quora, where I spend entirely too much time– If the GOP allegedly backs the blue, then why did they vote down the commission that would have physically backed the blue? Which twigged the question–was Blue Lives matter protesting in DC when the GOP voted down […]

I’m resorting to memes I find on Facebook these days because I’m getting pretty burned out on reality. Several Deaths in the family in recent weeks, plus a friend taking his own life, have pushed me through an emotional blender. I’m rarely laughing now. I work on smiling, but that was pointless during the COVID19 […]

I got my last shot over the weekend for the Coronavirus. I received the Moderna vaccine (two-dose special). I had problems scheduling an appointment here in Brooklyn. I consider that good-news, actually. It means local people are doing the vaccine. My friends who regale me with stories of zero-wait time for the inoculation are mostly […]

Memo to Joe Biden (Biden pic stolen from ecosystems. com) I’m getting mighty tired of all the climate activists talking about ‘solving’ Global warming by cutting our use of fossil fuels (in the present). We need to accept the idea that global warming crisis is caused in large part by the estimated two trillion tons […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
