Climate Change: Why is it so often "sooner than predicted"? A June 15th headline elicited feelings in me of both shock and de'jà vu: "Climate change: Arctic permafrost now melting at levels not expected until 2090"

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.

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.

Our Veggie Gardens Won't Feed us in a Real Crisis Massive flooding and heavier than normal precipitation across the US Midwest this year delayed or entirely prevented the planting of many crops. The situation was sufficiently widespread that it was visible from space.

We Should Stop Insulting Animals and Own Our Own Humanity While we keep talking this way saying that people are sheep, cops are pigs, and generals are hawks that's not going to happen. People, cops and generals are all Homo sapiens. We can't be anything else. We must acknowledge that reality, with humility and respect, and get to the work of cleaning up our mess.

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 we need a dictatorship to respond to Climate Change? Personally, I believe it's possible for an individual's outlook to change radically, sometimes within a short time frame even instantly due to extreme circumstances.

The Case Against Voting for President As individuals, our choices make very little difference to the state of the world, often virtually none. Nonetheless, those same choices can have significant effects on ourselves, sometimes profoundly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We Need to Stop Believing in "Belief" "I don't believe in belief. I think belief is a tremendously stultifying force. What I'm interested in is freedom, and I noticed very early that a belief absolutely precludes the possibility of holding to its opposite, and therefore if you believe something you have" limited yourself."

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.

Reflections on Technology & Culture at my Half-Century Mark I have remained intrigued about age as it relates to history. So, I value the experiences of people ten to twenty years older than me who have clear memories of the Sixties and early Seventies, and I am interested in the views of those twenty to thirty years younger who never knew the world without the internet.

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?

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.
