The GOP Agenda is Hateful, But the Rose Garden is Beautiful

Today is the Summer Solstice.

It’s a time to enjoy the longest day of the year and smell the roses.

It’s a day when one is meant to be happy.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Well…not so happy.

The GOP keeps getting its way with elections and its politicians keep breaking their oaths to uphold […]

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.

Don’t Expect Celebration of a Fascist Authoritarian.

It has finally happened.

Hell has frozen over, or whatever this state of disunion is.

We are officially living in the Untied States of America, and that is not a typographical error.

The size of the crowd must have been deeply disappointing to man whose ego is inextricably wrapped up in perceptions of size.

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 […]

Revolt Against the Pumpkingropenfuhrer. Now. No Need to Wait.

People have been asking when to revolt. Do it now. We’re out of reasons to wait.

The Electoral College has failed to go rogue, perhaps out of cowardice in the face of state legislation that seeks to constrain them via fines and/or prison time (even though federal law supersedes state law.

So…how to revolt? Little […]

Unhappy Earth Overshoot Day!

Unhappy Earth Overshoot Day!

Today is the day that we humans as a species are officially considered to be overdrawn on our use of the Earth’s Bank Account.

What is the Earth’s Bank Account?

That term refers to the Earth’s natural resources: healthy food, safe and clean water, clean air, space in which to live, […]

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 […]

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 […]
