In 1955, when 2 million tonnes of plastic were produced globally, Life magazine celebrated the dawn of “throw-away living,” thanks to disposable plastics. 60 years later, in 2015, 406 million tonnes of plastic were produced worldwide; a figure that keeps rising at a meteoric rate.
Entitlement is feeling right about performing some act. More specifically, entitlement is feeling that one has the right to do something. The question of entitlement arises when a behavior is uncivil, and thereby questionable in being reasonable.
Looking at what is known about the cosmos leads to an obvious conclusion: the universe shows trillions of years of evolution. Considering what is unknown, an eternal universe is likely.
Reading enriches the mind, rendering reading a mental superfood.
The hype that electric vehicles are environmentally preferable to petrol-powered cars is untrue.
Political leaders have known since the late 1960s that humanity was facing an existential crisis. They did nothing. Now, with extreme geophysical events occurring more frequently, a growing segment of the public is belatedly demanding remedy. All they may hope to see is “too little too late.”
The trend of global warming is baked in for decades because oceans absorb 93% of the thermal energy from greenhouse gas emissions. This heat atmospherically equilibrates over a 30+-year period.
Global warming is just one aspect of the man-made major mass extinction event underway but is the facet upon which the most attention has been paid. The approach used has consistently underestimated the dynamic of demise. Here is a summary of the modeling effort.
Reaping the wind has come quite a way from the windmills of yore that provided the power to grind grain. Wind power now consists of spindly propeller-driven turbines that generate electricity from gusts.
Droughts. Floods. Severe storms. Heatwaves. Raging wildfires. Foul air & water. Inflation. Unemployment. The litany of the end times will only intensify in the coming years. And so the pressure on political leaders to “do something” will intensify. The easiest way to mollify is the path well-trod by politicians since democracy arose and “the people” felt entitled to an answer to their concerns.
The demise of humanity from accelerating climate change seems certain before the next century dawns and may come within the next 50 years. Those who dispute this prediction are riding a legacy of dither and denial championed by the political establishment for the past 6 decades.
One of the miracles of life is the symphony of coherence during the development of complex organisms. Biologists misapprehend this miracle because they embrace the wrong paradigm of reality. The idea of “physical forces” is a conflation of impetus and artifact.
A report on the worldwide covid pandemic as of 19:00 GMT on Saturday 28 May 2022. Globally, covid pandemic active infection numbers are about the same as a week ago.
Men have crafted a mass extinction event. This is not just a crime against humanity. It is attempted mass murder of Mother Earth. What is the morality of this?
The cells comprising the thin inner layer of blood vessels regulate blood’s many behaviors. This endothelium accomplishes its responsibility by sharing copious information in a self-organizing network.
Though the cause of human self-extinction may be singularly attributed to unsustainable lifestyles, it involves so much more than just “climate change.”
Wildfires, which are becoming more intense and frequent, are accelerating global warming in a fierce feedback loop.
How your mind makes connections and whether you believe conclusions from those connections determines your view of the world.
Throughout history, maxims of wisdom emanate from the spiritually realized. Yet 99.9+% of the world (the Collective) fail to apply these lessons, preferring to suffer in ignorance.
As any sperm can tell you, fertilizing a mate is an arduous task. Animal sperm need to be champion swimmers. Pollen must be aerial acrobats.
On coronaviruses and CoV2, the virus which causes covid-19.
The tiniest beetles illustrate the astonishing creativity of evolution.
On the disease covid-19: symptoms, spread, treatment, and protection against catching covid.
Concern about self-extinction via industrial pollution and the rape of Nature has been eased by falsities. Humanity is being doomed by bad data and irresponsible reportage.
