Our Heroine

  • November 1, 2018

"Our generation will never be able to fly because the adult generations have used up all our carbon budget." This 15-year-old autistic girl spends her Fridays on the steps of Sweden's Parliament trying to wake people up - especially public officials - about the climate crisis. “I am doing this because nobody else is doing anything." she says. "It is my moral responsibility to do what I can. "I want the politicians to prioritize the climate question, focus on the climate and treat it like a crisis.” Her story has been published in the New Yorker and other online publications, and is widely...

What does “existential crisis” mean?

  • October 31, 2018

It means that many lifeforms are becoming extinct and it is no longer beyond reason that the human species faces that possibility in the next several generations. In our stories, in books and movies, an existential crisis moves heroes on quests to seize the day, to reverse the danger, to save life on Earth. In this time, we seem to be still looking for that hero, as the anti-hero rages across the stage spewing ignorance and hatred, with the world nearly in his grasp. Our Hero is still in the bat cave somewhere, so several somewhat lesser heroes have to take things in hand. Each of these...

The other side of the climate equation

  • October 30, 2018

  CARBON: GET IT IN THE GROUND The natural solution to climate crisis is to use all life forms on Earth to pull carbon out of the atmosphere and put it back in the ground.

Every microbe, every living animal should work on the carbon brigade. Get it in the ground!

Everything 061 (Everything failed, but not forever)

  • June 3, 2017

Everything failed, but not forever On June 1, 2017, the elected leaders of the United States government and all the people who participate in the conservative movement to shrink the government to a size that you could put into a bathtub and drown, decided the government would no longer participate with all but two of the nations on Earth to clean up the planet and prevent the dynamic processes that surround it from driving life toward extinction. Fortunately, the vast majority of the people of the United States have more sense than that and will continue to work together with the rest...

Climate 008 (Whoops)

  • March 28, 2017

Did we drop the ball? Today the president launched his war on the human species with a series of actions designed to accelerate climate change, at least in the United States. Were people meditating, focusing on connecting to his mind and the minds of people around him? Or did we get distracted by Russia and Nordstrom's and North Korea and a hundred other issues?

Climate 007 (another hope?)

  • December 21, 2016

Another hope? Update: It is unclear how much of this "different profile" is spin, how much is greenwash, and how much is progress on climate disruption. Rex Tillerson is Donald Trump's presumptive Secretary of State. He is the CEO of Exxon Mobil. News reports say Exxon's position on climate disruption changed radically when Tillerson took over. “Before and after Rex Tillerson, Exxon had a very different profile, as a company, in the issues related to climate change, and that’s worth noting,” said Sam Adams, the United States director for the World Resources Institute, a nonpartisan...
