Resources are Strained, and People Wonder Why Brexit Happened! Really!?

Seriously?! How can people not understand why Brexit happened? The causes are no great mystery. They are all around us:

Human overpopulation leads to ecosystems collapse which leads to economic collapse.

Add to the mix developed nations treating a crowded and crashed ecosystem like an expendable gas station of a nation, plus religiousness to the […]

Right Rather Than Popular – We Are Overpopulated, and Do NOT Have a Right to More, More, More.

Mark Twain said: “It is better to be popular than right.”

He lived in a different time, when the Industrial Revolution was just taking off. Resources were not scarce.

Things have changed, and his advice no longer works.

The Earth has a lot of problems, starting with humans.

We use too much, and too many […]

Climate Change: Beware of Peer Pressure When Evaluating It.

When I prepare a blog post, I check off the categories and tags on the sidebar. This time, I noticed that I checked off most of the ones that I deal with in my Nae-Née series, which is dystopian science fiction about human overpopulation as an underlying cause of ecosystems collapse.

In that series, at […]

Water Warriors: How and Where to Find Our Politicians.

Save Our Water! This is the button being worn by the people who object to the plan for Niagara Bottling to draw 1.8 million gallons of water per day from our reservoirs. This plan would cause a factory to be built in Bloomfield, with just a few menial, hourly wage jobs for humans and […]

Water, Water…Not Enough to Drink, Cook In, Wash With…Too Many People.

“Water, water, everywhere and not a drop to drink…” – from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1798.

How ironic that that was published in the same year that Thomas Robert Malthus published his An Essay on the Principle of Population.

Coleridge was observing that the mariner was surrounded by undrinkable […]

Letter to Governor Dannel P. Malloy – Save Our Bee Lorax!

Because I am fighting to ensure that Connecticut continues to have an apiary inspector, I decided to write to the governor about it.

Dear Senator Bye:

Our Bee Inspector is the Lorax of Honeybees – Save His Funding!

Mark Creighton, the Connecticut Apiary Inspector, performs a crucial function: he protects a vital piece of our ecosystem by speaking for it and ensuring that as many bees as possible are not poisoned by neonicotinoids, mites, nosema, and any other threat. He is the state’s Lorax of bees, and we need him! He speaks for […]

Precariat Jobs – Be Careful to Keep Them! No, Wait…Even So, You Won’t Keep Them.

I have always loved new words – the kind created to express a socially relevant situation.

They’re fun, they’re apt, and they soon become a part of the English language because they are catchy and express their concept so efficiently.

Now for the grim aspect of this one: “precariat” jobs are the precarious ones that […]

Europe is Being Invaded by Migrants. Citizens Know It. Politicians Ignore It.

This is a ridiculous way to have to live. The migrants are invaders from a collapsed ecosystem. They must be pushed back there. They have proven themselves to be incompatible with the host culture, and to be utterly unwilling to adapt to it. They prefer to take over the territory. Unacceptable outcome! >:(

This […]
