Fox News – How Dare It Share My Cool Last Name! – And Other Observations

Fox News – how dare it share my cool last name!

Actually, I prefer to call it Fixed Noise, a la Keith Olbermann. He switches between calling it Fixed News and Fox Noise, but I like my combination of his terms.

Fox News/Fixed Noise is anchored by a disturbing mix of college dropouts, spin doctors, […]

DeVos is with the Kochs, the Uihleins, the Mercers, the Trumps – not with the People.

Betsy DeVos has never had to worry about money.

We have a Non-Secretary of Education in Betsy DeVos.

She has no idea what it feels like to worry about paying bills, about being able to pay bills, about how she will pay student loan […]

The Water Will Cover Florida…and a Nuclear Power Plant.

Miami, Florida is just a few feet above sea level, and within a few decades, it will be level with the sea.

The water won’t stop there.

It will rise another few feet, and likely another few feet after that, for a total of at least 9 feet above its current level, before this century […]

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.

Jurassic Park Price: $8.99

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

Farmers – with […]

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.

-40% The Carbon Calculator Price: $5.99 Was: $9.99

Next year, we’ll have it in July. Yay, humans, for depleting a […]

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 […]

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, […]

Journalists Are Delighted to Disgust Bigots

Journalists are delighted when bigots are disgusted that they can present anything they wish to present.

They live to do that.

It is their mission in life.

It is their raison d’être.

Okay, you get the idea. I fun iterating it several ways.

Authoritarian bigots who disdain in-depth reporting backed up by sound research […]

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 […]
