I’m still here

Let’s see, today is Thanksgiving, a traditional American holiday of gluttony and greed. Still, there are some good things about this day, a chance to argue with your mother-in-law, or disapprove of your sisters’s choice in husband, or get drunk and make rude jokes. Have another slice of pie, this is America, land of the red, white and blue and home of the slave.[...] Read More

Quotations

Here are some notable quotations –

“Peace and the survival of life on earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values. Destruction of nature and natural resources results from ignorance, greed and lack of respect for the earth’s living things.”

“Our ancestors viewed the earth as rich and bountiful, which it is. Many people in the past also saw nature as inexhaustibly sustainable, which we know is the case only if we care for it. It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past that resulted from ignorance. Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations.”[...] Read More

More Bad News for Climate Change

Greenhouse gas emmissions are up 23% – Himalayan glaciers are melting at breakneck speed, with “Millions face[ing] glacier catastrophe”, and the “Global Disaster Will Follow If the Ice Cap on Greenland Melts“. The resulting world-wide coastal inundation will displace hundreds of millions of people (at least).

It just doesn’t get much more serious then this folks. Well, actually it does, if you’re one of the ten people paying attention. The Amazon drought is apparently wiping out entire cross sections of animals. I’ve already listed examples of the collapsing oceans and fisheries, soil depletion and toxic waste dumps. Humans must be the stupidest animals alive, bar none.[...] Read More

Army admits to White Phosphorus Weapons Used in Fallujah

From Field Artillery Magazine

“WP [i.e., white phosphorus rounds] proved to be an effective and versatile munition. We used it for screening missions at two breeches and, later in the fight, as a potent psychological weapon against the insurgents in trench lines and spider holes when we could not get effects on them with HE. We fired ‘shake and bake’ missions at the insurgents, using WP to flush them out and HE to take them out.”[...] Read More

Natural Living

What is natural living?

Is it living off the land? We all “live off the land”, although not directly. Not so that you’d notice where food, clothing or housing actually comes from. We are deliberately divorced from this knowledge and experience. But in reality, everything we need for our survival as individuals and as a species already comes from the land. Is this natural living? No, of course not.[...] Read More
