‘They don’t plan to tell us’ 2018 edition
Explosions of methane in the Siberian permafrost. I first used this title four years ago, when there was scant news coverage of the explosion of methane out of the Siberian Permafrost (satellite pic from Siberian Times). I was more optimistic back then… The big news in Media Matters on Monday–of the 50 largest largest US newspapers, […]
Did I speak too soon on Extinction?
Well, this is confounding. A few days ago, I posted that we might have ducked a meltdown of Arctic ice for the year–we’re heading into September, and while we’ve lost a lot of ice mass, we aren’t at a blue ocean event. DERP. The Arctic Methane Emergency Group has a scientist named Sam Carana. Or […]
Did we just dodge the extinction bullet?
I’ve been talking about the increasing likelihood of losing Arctic Ice this year. Scientist after scientist has come forward over the past two years to say this year could be it–that the once-dismissed projections of Guy McPherson were now supported by the projections of the Naval Postgraduate College, Harvard scientist James Anderson, and Ocean physicist […]
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 […]
When September ends
The first piece of information you should know about is a video from June. I’ve been ruminating over this for a month. My first thought was Green Day’s song about waking up when September ends. But no, this is a projection from Dr. Guy McPherson. This comes in the wake of lots of predictions by various […]
Our energy predicament
My blog today is based on this meme, which showed up on my FB feed. It was first put out in 2015 by an anti-AGW ‘skeptic’ group. Snopes actually did an overview of the arguments and found it was a ‘mixture’ of truth. Thomas Homer-Dixon was misquoted in his statement above, because though he wrote […]
Rebranding culture jamming
I’ve had this blog for almost six years now. I launched it not long after a video of my play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB made a big splash. I had performed the play as part of a theater project for the Occupy Movement titled OCCUPY THE EMPTY SPACE held […]
Breakin’ da Law, Breakin’ da Law!!
Behold John C. Beale, EPA’s number two man for a number of years. He was the EPA’s highest-paid employee and (according to an article in NBC’s news website) “a leading expert on climate change”. He was apparently telling his boss for almost a decade that he was working for the CIA covertly and that his […]
‘Biological Annihilation’ and other hopeful statements
No, friends, you haven’t picked up a blog-post copy of the National Enquirer. I am the lowly reporter/performance artist, and I had watched a video this AM of Guy McPherson’s latest thoughts. It’s here on YouTube, if you wish to peruse it. It’s blessedly short. And the prediction doesn’t give us much time either–the […]
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 […]
