15K and counting: My V-Rex

Just a short note about my bicycle (the Rans V-Rex rendered above). Today I crossed the 1,000 mile mark for the summer of 2019, which means I have 15,000 miles on it. Oddly, it’s been almost five years to the day since I put the first 10,000 miles on the V-Rex, proud product of the Rans […]

So long and thanks for nuthin’

Wow–my last post was UBER depressing, huh? Sorry about that (it also had a record number of hits over 48 hour period). The data has been building up for awhile and I haven’t done a long-form piece on the predicaments. If you’re new to the blog, I don’t write often enough for these to sink […]

Extinction news, blah blah

I’ve been slacking again. I haven’t updated my website as I said I would, and I’ve been rehashing other people’s work (thanks Kevin Hester). I bring the usual bad news, and the only comfort in it is that I’m no longer surprised.  Apparently, we (by ‘we’ I mean the federal government we fund with our […]

Happy 2018, DOODS!

Latest from Guy and other things

I was really moved by Dr. Guy McPherson’s latest video. Yes, he’s still talking about near term human extinction. No, it ain’t fixed. No, it probably can’t be fixed. But he’s no longer the methodical, analytic individual I first encountered when watching his videos from 2012. I think he’s playing to an audience of his […]

Fukushima–the other shoe dropping six years later

I have eased off on pronouncements on Fukushima over the past year or so. For those of you not following, several reactors went into full meltdown after the town of Fukushima, Japan was hit by a giant tsunami six  years ago (the anniversary is coming up).Every indication is that things are getting worse. Reports from […]

Planet Hospice comes to the Tampa Fringe!!!

Dates are May 11-14. Tickets are $10 plus a small service charge. Performances will be at Urban Phoenix […]
