My main purpose for creating this website is to assist in acquiring philanthropic funding.

Sufficient funding would not only allow me to fully immerse myself, time wise, in my endeavor to save the planet, it would also allow me to advertise more extensively and reach a broader audience.


Roe v. Wade and Calling a Spade a Spade

I haven’t blogged for quite some time. For one thing, all my life I’ve been plagued with the problem of not having enough time. Lots of ideas. Way too little time. But also, I just don’t see any real interest out there in doing the things we really need to be doing. Don’t get me…

My 'Archive Alive' Idea

My ‘Archive Alive’ Idea

This might be the most important blog post I’ve ever done. Why? I have always been a big believer in big ideas. In their power and potential to change and transform the world in very big ways. But big ideas can only be meaningful if they are acted upon — or lead to the formation…

Environmentalists in Residence

I’m a very strong believer in the power and potential of big ideas — for transforming and shaping society in big ways. I’m also a big believer in the idea that combining strengths with people who share your passion, can be a mutually enriching experience that can give back in so many ways. Now, imagine…

What's a Mini-M?

What’s a Mini-M?

Today I am going to share with you an idea I’ve been wanting to get around to blogging about for years. Hopefully, it will inspire some of the people who read this to act on it. This is not just my first new blog post of the New Year, it is appropriately a great way…

Compartmentalizing, Biodiversity Loss and Dams

I want to mention a couple of articles that appear in today’s New York Times. But let me start by saying that one of the things I find annoying about the way in which climate change is often talked about, is we need to stop compartmentalizing environmental issues. We need to view what we’re doing to…

Guterres Urges World Leaders to Do More to Battle Climate Change

Yesterday, the New York Times reported on page 6 that the United Nations secretary general, Antonio Guterres, on Monday, urged world leaders to do more to battle climate change, going so far as to warn that “If we do not change course by 2020, we risk missing the point where we can avoid runaway climate…

The Big Idea

I can’t wait another minute. I just have to share this. This is something I’m so excited about that it’s the first blog post I’ve actually given a title — see note below. Just read below what I tweeted the other day, and you’ll see why I’m so excited: Wow. this is really, really exciting!!!…

An Anthropocenic Oath

One review in Sunday’s New York Times Book Review that caught my attention was Naomi Oreskes’s review of Randi Hutter Epstein’s Aroused: The History of Hormones and How They Control Just About Everything (“Science or Quackery? / Hormones research and its many missteps and mistakes.”). A byline notes that Oreskes — along with co-author Erik M. Conway…

Drawing Inspiration from My ‘Saved Quotations’ Drawer

In deciding which quotations to use for today’s blog post, I spent several hours going through and organizing the material I’ve accumulated in my ‘saved quotations’ drawer. The last time I did something like this, I believe, was back on August 5, 2014. This time, however, I am aiming to do something a little different.…

No Vision

Like a moth to a flame, here I go again. Sleep beckons … but instead, I’ve got other plans. I want to quick comment on some things I saw in yesterday’s New York Times. I’m hoping I can do this fairly quickly. Every Sunday, for quite some time now, in the main news section of…

Recyclables End Up Where?

There was an interesting article in Newsday a couple days ago (Kinberly Yuen, “Waste not: LI pair tosses trash only 3 times a year” July 17) about a local Long Island couple who throw out their trash only about three times a year. That’s quite an extraordinary feat, considering that the average American, according to…

Art & Activisim

Do I have time for a quick blog post? Let’s find out. Here’s a direct quote from an article in this past Sunday’s New York Times (by Olivia Mitchell Ryan and Zoe Mou, “A Health Complaint Delivered In 9,000 Crud-Filled Bottles”): Water pollution is very common, it’s very common around the world, but it never receives…

A $250,000 Mattress, Versus Sleeping on the Street

One of the things I enjoy doing every week is taking a quick peek at Marilyn vos Savant’s Ask Marilyn column, in Parade magazine. It arrives tucked inside my Newsday, in the weekend comics section, along with the advertising circulars. This week’s Dilbert cartoon, on the cover of that comics section, reminded me of something…

Cats Prowl for Endangered Owl … and the Encroaching Insect Armageddon

Here we go again. There are so many things I’m really itching to blog about, that I wish I had a lot more time. But I don’t. So I’ll just mention a few things from this past Sunday’s New York Times that caught my attention. One article worth mentioning is the cover story “Google Doesn’t…

Carcinogens in Our Water ... and Florida Underwater

Carcinogens in Our Water … and Florida Underwater

Serendipity is a wonderful thing. While retrieving one of the articles I will soon cite, I also came across another that I thought I was going to have to travel to a distant library to obtain. No, it was right where I thought it was all along, hiding in plain sight. I’ve been wanting to…
