Thinking Outside the Social Media Echo Chamber Lately, it's been popular to refer to the increasingly narrow worldview that we receive this way as an "echo chamber.",,, Rather than picturing ourselves along a spectrum-defined by only two dimensions-we can envision ourselves in bubbles,,, This admits to being in a bubble, which is honest.

Centering the Earth Something remarkable is happening in the US in 2020 in terms of public awareness of race. The George Floyd uprising, two months in duration so far, has brought formerly fringe ideas into the mainstream, shifting the entire frame of discourse to the left.

This is What Collapse Looks Like We can't say we weren't warned. Since the beginning of this misbegotten project called civilization, there have been dissidents in word and in deed. At every step of the way when we have chosen to walk with ecocide, we could have taken a different path, but didn't. Now here's the reckoning.

COVID-19 Denialism is Rooted in the Settler Colonial Mindset COVID denialism in the US is problematic to say the least. The nation is facing a public health crisis that's far worse than it needs to be, as shown by the examples of countless other nations around the world that have largely suppressed the first wave. In fact, the US is one of the most dangerous places to be for this pandemic.

Trying to Go Deep on Social Media is Like Trying to Dig a Hole from a Moving Vehicle What's happening at all the George Floyd protests around the country? How many people are showing up? What are the demographics? How many cops are there? Which community organizations are involved? Are local elected officials helping or hurting? Who really broke that window or set that fire? What about these reports of incitement by white supremacists?

What is a "Native" Plant in a Changing World? Whether a given plant is considered "native" where it is found growing is dependent on the interpretation of the interrelation of three factors: time, place and human involvement.

Eight Reasons Trump Doesn't Need to "Cancel the Election" Voter suppression is the elephant in the room in 2020. It was in 2016, too, and I find it amazing that the trauma of Trump's victory didn't lead to first exposing and then rooting out the widespread fraud. But then, as you'll recall, Clinton's loss was blamed on "RUSSIA!" for two and a half years, to the exclusion of every other issue or element.

O Christmas Tree, Toxic Christmas Tree! I first became aware of the toxic nature of Christmas tree farming in 2011 when I was farming in Polk County with my friend Clarabelle, in Oregon's Willamette Valley.

Blaming Nader in 2000 Paved the Way for Neo-Fascism There is no longer any rationale for considering the Democrats to be a peace or antiwar party in any meaningful sense, even relative to the Republicans.

Do Bernie's Supporters Know What "Not Me, Us" Means? Does Bernie? I've gotta give it to Bernie and/or his strategy folks. "Not me, us" is the best political slogan I've heard in long time.

The Seattle WTO Uprising & the Indymedia Movement, Twenty Years Later This week marks the 20th anniversary of the WTO protests in Seattle. The event was a spark set to dry kindling, and the flames that raced across the nation afterwards danced for a few years before they were smothered.

Coups-for-Green-Energy added to Wars-For-Oil I abhor the fascists that ran Morales out of office, especially the ones in the US. We have no business messing with anyone's right to self-determination. I hope that Morales is able to return to power, as he has pledged to do.

Rare Wildflower vs. Green Energy & Human Hubris (Part 2) One possibility is to provide Tiehm's Buckwheat with a new home outside of Ioneer's project area. Seeds could be collected and sown nearby. Plants could be rescued from the path of the bulldozer and transplanted.

Rare Wildflower vs. Mining Company (Part 1) If the plant were to be listed by the Feds or by Nevada, then the CBD (or other parties) could seek to curtail Ioneer's activities, in part or in whole. Donnelly believes they have a better chance of success with the state, which he described as "more nimble" than the Feds.
