For all that is said about the Green New Deal, Climate Change, Greta Thunberg, etc. etc., here are some the actual questions that I have yet to see answers to. I don't agree 100% with all that Guy says, but that would about 1/100th of all he says and mainly concerns the unknown possible innovations we have yet to think of. BUT scarcely anyone is even aware of the innovations that would even be needed. So to anyone who holds hope for slowing, halting, or reversing climate change, I'd rather not hear from you until you can address these concerns--which are the tip of the iceberg, given all else we are actively doing by the hour to take down the biosphere, full speed ahead.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

The concrete example--the functionally extinct white rhino--is piercing. Now multiply that by a million.


My husband asked me how my mental state would be if climate catastrophe was not happening. Well, even without the unraveling climate, the greed-blinded captains of unreserved capitalism are overseeing the ruination of our home. Opportunity in the Arctic ice melt!


Even on medication days I just can't take it all in.

Nor can I and if someone really can, I think they don't grasp the situation. I don't like seeing what I see, let alone posting it. Not exactly a great way to "win friends and influence people." Even though it's a small fraction of what I come across, seemingly without effort.

At least "the news" is starting to come via the MSM, for anyone with two brain cells to rub together. I tell myself not to freak out. There's nothing to be done anyway. My Keeshound, our dog with PTSD from child abuse, got off leash today and gave me something more immediate to take seriously. I'm glad I don't live in Kansas, at least not yet. We just have Yellowstone and the long overdue Wasatch fault. These distractions help. I take more pictures, read more, watch science videos including Curiosity Stream, hopefully give Tulsi more of a platform here, try to be a decent husband and step-father, drink a bit more wine, and... well, you get the idea.

Sorry Daniel. For me McPherson remains an arrogant self centered deluded jerk. I can't listen to him for more that 5 minutes. Does he have anything positive to say in the rest of the video after the first few minutes?

As I have said before, in my opinion he is a net negative for those of us would would like to see progress, and yes I believe progress is possible, on the reversal of climate change.

For an unbiased evaluation of his work I think this is rational:

ionalwiki.org/wiki/Guy_McPherson

"Analysis of the data by knowledgeable science educators such as Scott K. Johnson[7] and working scientists such as Michael Tobis[8] shows that McPherson wildly distorts climate science"

No need to apologize to me. I am well aware of his many detractors and have listened to far more than I recall, but GM has the evidence that I see on his side. I could write a small book on this if I had total recall, but truth is I believe he understates the case. I've done two interviews with him myself and pressed him quite hard on the second one.


For now, people can jjust watch a variety of news channels on extreme weather globally and draw their own conclusions--reminding me again to call my niece in Oklahoma. Check rising food prices as farmers struggle or fold. Look closer at local biology and weather patterns. Watch ecosystems and species collapsing post haste. Toss in 7.7 billion people, lunatics ready to trigger nuclear holocaust--the real holocaust!--and the list never ends.


Watch Paul Beckwith for a more "arms length" look, while remembering he has a kid--and find even worse news. Be kind or kinder, no matter...
