Our path to the end

This post started as a response to a question on Quora. I spend way too much time on Quora and Facebook and other such time-vampire sites, but somehow I’ve worked up to the point where I’m a frequent responder on topics around climate change. I’ve become a most frequently-read poster ‘expert’ on Quora, which means… […]

Video on wet bulb extinction

COUNTDOWN TO EXTINCTION–A short (<5 min) version of the extinction scenario most of us in the doomer cult anticipate in the near future when Arctic ice goes away. I’ve already posted about wet bulb, but this has pretty colorful cartoons and animation. Thanks to Kevin Hester for bringing it to my attention. I’ve posted other […]

End stage capitalism– spelled ‘Louisiana’

Some friends associated with the venerable Living Theatre of 1960’s fame are currently touring a show on capitalism as a form of sado-masochism. I got to see Know Your Rites at a dress rehearsal. Not an easy thing to watch, but I’ve been thinking about it a great deal (and you should go see it […]

Don’t know much about AGW–EXXON KNEW

This is a series I’ve posted in from time to time. The point of the title (‘don’t know much about….’) is meant to highlight a subject that I’ve found to be generally misunderstood or not part of the general knowledge of most people. The inspiration for the series was Kenneth C Davis‘ DON’T KNOW MUCH […]

“Faster than Previously Expected”–a fun Google Game!

The above is Kevin Hester. He’s a longtime activist out of Kiwi Land, and he has beenĀ instrumental in getting out the message about climate calamity (specifically near term extinction) in his part of the world. Back in March, he conducted a little experiment on the old Google Machine. He typed something into Google’s search block […]
