So whadya want me to do about it, smarty pants?

Occasionally my blogs turn to Mother Earth and the plight we've put her in. What with all our take, take, take over the millennia, and our exploitation (without time for renewal) of her natural assets, our modern day existence on this planet has now become a tearfully tragic tech ...

Plastic Man Goes Green

I was the very model of a modern world suburbanite,  · Preoccupied with cleanliness, was well informed and erudite,  · My food all came in cling wrap, to be nice and fresh and watertight,  · And when I left the supermarket, plastic bags were my delight. · I bought too much, I coo ...

What We Need To Do To Save The World

Twenty four weeks ago, I began to post a series of columns on the renewable revolution that’s going on in the world. I thought, at the very least, it would make me feel less depressed about the sorry ass state of the environment. · I called it Brand New Day, and as I researched i ...
