We close out of Vancouver Fringe
And as of September 19, we closed out of our digital run on the Vancouver Fringe Festival. I’d be less than honest if I stated that I was happy with things. I didn’t get much of an audience. I certainly tried harder than I have in previous Fringe fest Outings. Ads for my play ran […]

The accelerating warming
I’m taking you to an early picture of Guy McPherson because the lecture he did seven years ago. I even did my first blog on the work of Guy McPherson as a result of this lecture. It linkS to a Youtube video of his lecture: One of the factoids that stuck with me was early […]
‘Live in Hell, Rent Texas out’
global weirding comes to the US big-time. As someone who thought I’d be a successful playwright/screenwriter by now, I read a lot of obscure history. At one point I was working on a musical play about the US Cavalry men that finally brought down the Apache nation (especially Geronimo). This was back in the 1980’s, […]
The Worst News so far
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 […]
Why we can’t stop using fossil fuels
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
