You have waited an hour for the train and someone is making an announcement you can barely hear for the poor quality of the PA system. You are talking on the phone to… Read More Loss of Intelligence Across the Species
On reason alone, I stand with those who are concerned about global warming. No physical system can absorb an unlimited amount of change without itself being changed. No one can honestly argue that there is no limit in the case of Earth. If the argument is simply that we have not reached that limit, then… Read More Biologically caused climate change has happened before.
Be free of worry! Your living room has no limits! Don’t let anyone tell you that it does! Since it is not finite, it must be infinite. So go ahead and turn the hose on inside!

Facebook is the perfect friend. It always asks me what’s on my mind and gives me an audience that enjoys complete free will in being able sneak out of its seat if it wants to without me seeing anyone leave (a shy grandiose person’s ultimate fantasy) and lets me edit my response as many times… Read More So they want to be persons and friends! Our naked selves, our friendly giants, and the contract which binds us.
What these authors suggest environmentalists should do, instead of concentrating on dire scenarios (this would backfire because you ninnies don’t like being scared about the environment and these authors roll out the data to prove it) is promote NUCLEAR ENERGY instead! Oh, do you think I’m kidding? Read to the end of the piece! But… Read More If there’s any worrying to do, they’ll let you know – a riff on an opinion promoting nuclear energy in the New York Times
Well, there’s another solution. And it’s probably really the only one. And — for you visionaries who feel totally competent to rewrite the book of nature on our behalf, lauding yourselves as you go while checking your corporate profits — this should be as nothing to you: You could leave the planet. No, really. You… Read More Don’t wreck this world. Make another one.
It’s true, Lake Erie got better. -One of the smartest people I am privileged to know gave Lake Erie as an example of the ability of natural systems to recover from pollution-in support of the case that we don’t have to be so gosh-darn worried about the environment. If anyone out there doesn’t know, Lake… Read More “DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT BECAUSE IT CAN TAKE CARE OF ITSELF.”

Until you reason this more fundamental question through, you cannot have truly reasonable thoughts about whether what could or could not happen is or is not happening, now. People who… Read More Help your friends think about Climate Change
Really, I don’t know who makes me madder, the people who don’t believe in global warming — or the people who do! And wouldn’t you know the debate (if you can call it that, which you cannot) is divided along political lines. Yet between the two sides, I cannot choose who is the stupider. Every… Read More Get OUT of the PROOF TRAP on GLOBAL WARMING! (revised)
If I hear one more dumb argument about ‘global warming,’ I think I’ll just faint! Really, I don’t know who makes me madder, the people who don’t believe in global warming — or the people who do!
