We can’t be reminded enough of the folly of the Corporatist Farmers of Jurassic Park.

The Farmers that I write about in Nae-Nee, my dystopian series on human overpopulation and ecosystems collapse, are the careless corporatists that Dr. Ian Malcolm is chastising in this clip from Jurassic Park.

Here is the Nae-Nee series that I am referring to:

Farmers – with a capital “F” – […]

Iris Blossoms, Peonies, and Global Footprint Calculations.

Sometime last week, I received an e-mail from the Global Footprint Network that said that this year, Earth Overshoot Day will fall on August 1st.

Global Footprint Network

It gets earlier every year.

Next year, we’ll have it in July. Yay, humans, for depleting a year’s worth of the Earth’s resources earlier and […]

Happy Spring – Avril of the Nae-Nee Series Loves This Time of Year.

Happy Spring! This is the time of year that Avril, the narrator of the Nae-Nee series, spends a lot of time going for walks, setting up her garden, and appreciating nature.

The Nae-Nee series consists of 3 dystopian novels about human overpopulation and ecosystems collapse. The story is told by Avril, a lawyer […]

Longing for the Past Puts One on the Wrong Side of History.

Do you occasionally receive chain e-mails from friends and/or relatives?

We probably all do.

These can be fun, harmless missives full of images that make us laugh or educate us.

These can also be indicative of the sender’s political, religious, or other leanings.

I got one about 5 years ago that has been on my […]

Scott Pruitt is the Bear Guarding the EPA-Beehive – It’s a Blatant Conflict of Interest.

I wrote a book a few years ago about honeybee colony collapse that outlines the legal obstacles to applying scientific solutions to the problem, plus obstacles posed by wealthy and powerful corporations, which include the money that they throw at politicians and the lobbyists they hire to achieve this. The corporations inflict permanent damage on […]

Mitigative Action versus Corrective Action – Postponement Is Always Easier Than Prevention

It is always cheaper, easier, and involves far less change of long-established habits, practices, and preferences to mitigate conditions that, if left unchanged, will inevitably lead to disaster, than it is to take corrective action and prevent that disaster altogether.

We just had this year’s World Water Day, and meanwhile, in Cape Town, South Africa, […]

Get Ready for Civil Unrest and Bloodbaths Where the Water Runs Out

Zero Water Day is approaching in Cape Town, South Africa.

Warnings about the consequences of water depletion were ignored.

Or so the reports say.

Watch: Cape Town Water Crisis – ‘City of Cape Town was warned’

I doubt that the politicians in Cape Town simply didn’t listen.

More likely, they don’t know […]

Never mind worrying about U.F.O.s – it’s I.F.O.s that we have to watch out for.

Orbital debris is relevant, it affects us, and it is once again in the news.

Orbital debris is junk in outer space.

Outer space and all things associated with it has always fascinated and excited me.

I know I’m not alone in that. Star Trek is certainly evidence of that, as are the works of […]

News to Enrage and Controversy to Stir Up

When Barack Obama was president, he did something to help with human overpopulation, women’s health, women’s freedoms to choose our futures, and women’s wallets: he eliminated co-pay requirements on birth control pills.

Trump undid that last week.

That’s the same guy who, when his mistress at the time, Marla Maples was pregnant, wanted her to […]

Enjoy Saying “No”. Don’t Apologize. Resist the Haters.

We are in the middle of a resource war that is fueled in the United States by resentment, hateful behavior, and populism.

In other parts of the world, resource war involves all of that plus necessities such as living space, food, clothing, health care, education, and jobs.

There are areas of the Middle East where […]
