The Climate Crisis Is Worse Than You Can Imagine. Here’s What Happens If You Try. thumbnail

Peter Kalmus, out of his mind, stumbled back toward the car. It was all happening. All the stuff he’d been trying to get others to see, and failing to get others to see — it was all here. The day before, when his family started their Labor Day backpacking trip along the oak-lined dry creek […]


Global population hit by extreme drought set to double

Enviroment

PARIS: Available freshwater is on track to decline sharply across two-thirds of Earth’s land surface toward the end of the century mostly due to climate change, with the number of people exposed to extreme drought doubling, researchers have reported. Even under a scenario of moderate decline in greenhouse gas emissions, land area scorched by extreme […]


Carmageddon: Hidden War Between Motor Cars and People

Enviroment

There is a silent, ongoing, global war between motor cars and people. It is silence because, though it kills many times more people than armed conflicts and terrorist acts combined. It seldom hits the headlines in the way they do. It is ongoing because it rages and will continue to rage around us day and […]


At current rates of deforestation, civilization will collapse in 20-40 years

Enviroment

Preface.  At current rates of deforestation, forests will be gone in 100-200 years. Long before that, in 20-40 years, the effects will be felt, with a 90% chance of civilization collapse likely. Since it looks like world conventional oil peaked in 2018, I’m putting my money on energy decline as the civilization crasher, but the […]


Why The World Can’t Quit Fossil Fuels

Enviroment

Have the recent pronouncements of the death of oil and reigning renewables been more rhetoric than reality? Yes and no. It’s true that peak oil is now closer than ever, and globally we’re seeing a more earnest effort to decarbonize than ever before, in large part thanks to green stimulus packages for post-COVID economic recovery.

The End of the World as We Know It?

The End of the World as We Know It? thumbnail

Humans Left Sustainability Behind as Hunter-Gatherers

Enviroment

Many people believe that humans can have a sustainable future by using solar panels and wind turbines. Unfortunately, the only truly sustainable course, in terms of moving in cycles with nature, is interacting with the environment in a manner similar to the approach used by chimpanzees and baboons. Even this approach will eventually lead to […]


The great unravelling

If you’ve ever been around someone who is dying, it may have struck you how strong a person’s lifeforce really is. When my dad was gravely ill, an invisible point of no return was gradually crossed, then suddenly death was in plain sight. We stood back helplessly, knowing that nothing more could be done, that […]


Resource Depletion

How long do most species last before going extinct?

How long do most species last before going extinct? thumbnail

The majestic blue whale has plied the seas for about 4.5 million years, while the Neanderthals winked out of existence in a few hundred thousand years. But are those creatures representative of species overall? How long do species usually last before they go extinct? It turns out the answer we find now could be very […]


The Great Pause Week 34: Dragon Dimming

Enviroment

“Pandemic lockdowns curtailed jet travel, closed shops and schools, and reduced global dimming by more than 20%. So what happened then?“    There was a famous experiment on May 21, 1946 that cost the Manhattan Project physicist Louis Slotin his life. In 2016, Alex Wellerstein revisited it for The New Yorker:   Slotin’s procedure was […]

The Tragedy of the ‘Tragedy of the Commons’

Enviroment

Fifty years ago, University of California professor Garrett Hardin penned an influential essay in the journal Science. Hardin saw all humans as selfish herders: we worry that our neighbors’ cattle will graze the best grass. So, we send more of our cows out to consume that grass first. We take it first, before someone else […]

Who is “we”?

Who is “we”? thumbnail

We humans have made a mess of things, which is readily evident if we face the avalanche of studies and statistics describing the contemporary ecological crises we face. But even with the mounting evidence of the consequences for people and planet, we have not committed to a serious project to slow the damage that we do. One reasonable response to those statements is, “Who […]


A Master Class on Overconsumption and Climate Change

She’s covered education, youth and housing issues for a decade now, and we’re lucky to have her. Jahren describes how her heart sank when she was asked to teach […]


Peak grain

Enviroment

The depletion of groundwater sources in parts of the United States High Plains is so severe that peak grain production in some states has already passed, according to new research. An international team of scientists, including experts from the University of Delaware, has extended and improved methods used to calculate peak oil production to assess […]
