Unhappy Earth Overshoot Day 2018

Well, it’s August 1st, 2018, and here we are, earlier than last year as usual, facing Earth Overshoot Day.

Congratulations to us humans: we have used up all of the resources that our planet can produce in a year.

We are now operating at a deficit, using resources on the Earths’ virtual credit card, resources […]

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.

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

It’s Earth Overshoot Day! And It’s Earlier Than Last Year, as Usual

Time to check the world population clock again.

Let’s see what it says…

We’re at 7,522,504,008 humans now.

Earth Overshoot Day comes earlier each year.

Earth Overshoot Day marks the point in the calendar at which our species as a whole has officially used up all of the resources – food, water, and […]

Earth Overshoot Day is Earlier Than Last Year – That’s Normal, and That’s Bad

The Global Footprint Network has released this year’s calculation for Earth Overshoot Day.

On August 2nd, 2017, we will observe – not celebrate – Earth Overshoot Day.

Each year, Earth Overshoot Day is earlier than the previous one. Last year, it was on August 8th. This chart predicts the end of June in 2030.

Destroying the World in Order to Build it Back Up – No Thank You.

Steve Bannon, Trump’s political strategist, has been heard to say that he wants to destroy the world, watch it burn, whatever it takes to remove the social, economic, political, and legal infrastructure that we now have, so that the slate will be cleared for building it anew.

Here is the quote:

“I’m a Leninist,” Bannon […]

Book 3 of the Nae-Née Series is Out: New World Order Underwater.

At last, I can announce that I am the author of a completed series of novels on human overpopulation.

Here are their covers, done by artists Katelyn M. Gagnon (Book 1) and Steve Palmerton (Books 2 and 3):

The name of the series is Nae-Née, for a birth control nanite. The name is […]
