The ‘net-zero’ greenwash
As a building energy use professional and ecologist, I have been appalled at the invention and use of the term ‘net-zero’. Here is an article which lays out the problem with it. Read and be informed!
British Court Approves Julian Assange Extradition to the US
The British court’s ruling to extradite Julian Assange to the United States to face charges there, boosts fascism and state secrecy, sending a chilling message to the practice of journalism everywhere. The vendetta against Julian, pursued by deranged actors inside the US government seeking revenge for his exposing their ‘secrets’, is being carried out.
Today is a low point in the history of press freedom and democracy. Without a free press reporting on state actions, government can perpetrate atrocities in our name, without our consent, undermining our safety and security.
Once regarded as a paragon of press freedom supporting democracy in the world, with this act, the United States government is following in the tradition of the worst of fascist states in their destruction of a free press. Long live the free and unfettered press!
COP26 “Greenwashing Festival” Ended – Now What?
Militarism vs Climate Chaos Readiness
The military industrial complex is a Frankenstein’s monster that must be reigned in. How? By replacing elected ignorant automaton representatives who pander to the monster with people of vision and intelligence. Sounds simple doesn’t it? It’s not. Both parties pander to the military. We must replace militarism with a reasonable level of defense only, redirecting the resources now being squandered on militaristic imperial forays towards more pressing matters, like climate chaos. The window is closing on the time remaining for the state to be proactive to address climate chaos. Soon the state will be overwhelmed responding to emergencies and disasters resulting from anthropogenic climate chaos. The money currently being wasted on militarism should be redirected towards mitigation and adaptation activities now.

The Purged: The Vanished Voters of Trump’s America
Infinite economic growth flies in the face of real limits that exist in the Earth’s biosphere. Excessive loading of carbon into the atmosphere has disrupted the earth’s natural carbon cycle and has changed our weather patterns that were stable before the industrial revolution. Our monoculture and corresponding destruction of diversity has led to a global pandemic that is threatening to bring down civilization as we know it. These phenomena are integrally linked to humanity’s obsession with growth. Time for de-growth!
I have long been an advocate for California’s secession from the union. Recently some pro-secession folks hired a mariachi band to play in front of an ICE director’s McMansion.
