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.

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 […]

Nature Has Conducted Another Eminent Removal

Every year, almost everywhere on the planet, there is another natural disaster that wipes out human development.

It doesn’t necessary wipe out the humans who developed – built settlements – on that land.

Hurricane Harvey has destroyed homes and other buildings and flooded the area that it hit.

The storm inundated dams so that […]
