Planet Hospice comes to the Tampa Fringe!!!

I wanted people to know that if they missed my play PLANET HOSPICE (a theatrical romp through human extinction) at United Solo and the Ithaca Fringe, I will be part of the First (FIRST) Tampa International Fringe Festival. Dates are May 11-14. Tickets are $10 plus a small service charge. Performances will be at Urban Phoenix […]

While we were distracted…(updated)

While we ‘Muricans were fighting about the worst election in modern US history, this news came in from the Arctic. You can read past posts I’ve had here about the loss of Arctic ice, but it has always started coming back in October of each year. Not this year. If this is the ‘new November’, […]

A WWII style mobilization on climate (and other BS)

Among the many DNC platform planks forced on the Hillary Clinton campaign by the Bernie campaign was a forceful item on climate and fighting global warming:  We believe the United States must lead in forging a robust global solution to the climate crisis. We are committed to a national mobilization, and to leading a global […]

When Habitat packs it in

Election is out of my system for the most part, so I thought I’d post this. As you know (if you’ve followed my posts), I’m doing a funny little play called PLANET HOSPICE come November and it’s about human extinction. People in denial about how far we’ve passed the tipping point seem to forget that […]

Consensus on AGW 99.99%

This is a chart just released by Dr. James Lawrence Powell, a retired professor with the appropriate credentials who (during his long productive career) sat on a number of important government boards on science. I had written about him after he consented to be on my late radio show a couple years ago (full details and […]

The ice is almost gone

This is bad.  NASA puts up a daily overlay map of the Arctic, including parts of Iceland, Greenland, and Scandinavia. The land masses are outlined, while the weather around said land masses is visible. The above (one of said maps) was put up yesterday. If you have never seen the pictures before (they’re here), you’ll have trouble seeing […]

2 C temp increase is already here

When I was younger (which could be any time in the recent past, actually), I was posting here that world temperatures had already increased due to warming by a number of around .85 c (or 1.5 F). That number was based on a lecture I viewed on Youtube by my go-to expert on such matters. […]

My article makes Huffpo

Thanks to my FB pal Angie Cordeiro (whose work I championed here a few weeks ago), the better part of my post ‘We Interrupt this Election…‘ has made the Huffington Post. Thanks to Angie for her work to make me seem smarter. It’s an unforgiving task.  Now, if you want to help support this effort […]

We’re screwed– evidence no longer matters

This has been on my mind for a few days now. It was sparked by an article in VOX about why we’re stuck in neutral vis a vis the gun violence in this country. And it’s also why (COP21 Paris notwithstanding) we won’t come up with anything that can realistically be called a ‘plan’ to deal […]

“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 […]
