DYSTOPIA COMES TO AMERICA…

December 3rd, 2012

Think Oklahoma City vs. New York, think Kiribati, the Maldives and Seychelles vs. New York, think New Orleans vs. New York, think Port-Au-Prince vs. New York, think Detroit vs. New York; are you as sick of whining rich New Yorkers as I am?

Thomas Hedges writes: “This is a very American idea,” Arne Jungjohann, a director at the Heinrich Boll Stiftung Foundation (HBSF), said at a press conference Tuesday morning in Washington, D.C. “We got this from Jimmy Carter.” Germany adopted and continued Carter’s push for energy conservation while the U.S. abandoned further efforts.

SCIENCE AND SCIENTISTS MATTER… A LOT…!

October 31st, 2012

Chris Mooney wrote in 2007: Even as we act immediately to curtail short term vulnerability, every exposed coastal city needs a risk assessment that takes global warming scenarios into account…Scientists at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York have been studying that city’s vulnerability to hurricane impacts in a changing world, and […]

IS THE BACKGROUND NOISE JUST TOO MUCH…?

November 15th, 2011

I’ve long been a fan of Jeremy Rifkin. I first discovered him in 1987 when I read his 10th book: Time Wars. I got to meet Rifkin at a Toronto environmental conference in 1995 when he was promoting his book: The End Of Work. This week I’m reading his most recent book: The the Third […]

It would have cost you $5 per half ounce to send a letter via the Pony Express from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California. Adjusted for inflation, that is something like $118 in present dollars. Much of our present economy is based on cheap transportation depending upon relatively cheap energy costs. (Yes, gasoline at less […]

CAN WE STOP CALLING THEM SKEPTICS…?

December 7th, 2009

Science is central to humanity’s response to our role in altering Earth’s climate via global warming. Those who argue that either a. global warming does not exist (this group has pretty much gone the way of the anti-evolution folks) or b. global warming is taking place, but it is a natural process and humans play […]

THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND

October 1st, 2009

William Kamkwamba is back in the news. Kamkwamba also appeared on the Diane Rehm show this morning. There were two questions from listeners that caught my attention.

GLOBAL WARNING… IN 1958…

October 23rd, 2008

For 50 scientists have known about global warming. This exerpt is from the well known educational documentary “Unchained Goddess” produced by Frank Capra for Bell Labs for their television program “The Bell Telephone Hour.” It was so well made, that it went on to live a continued life in middle school science classrooms across the nation for decades…
