An actual crisis hides behind the fake issue of climate change

Manipulating large groups of people requires deception that is plausible enough to take the place of what they should actually be thinking. This leads toward a need to create symbolic issues that conceal complex problems behind simple yes/no style plans. These plans universally revolve around quantity, meaning replacement of one institution with another, instead of…

A real environmental problem, not a fake one

Humans want to be heard. Each person must then come up with a unique contribution. Thus they all interject their own view of something, and the result is chatter. First, because they’re creating chaos. Second, because they’re not focusing on reality. They’re focusing on sounding cool, unique, ironic, innovative, radical, etc. Thus with the global…

Overpopulation is the cause of environmental damage, global warming

Most political issues are “proxies,” or highly visual events which stand for more complex underlying needs. Symbols tend to hide their actual meaning because that to which they refer is bigger than the symbol, and yet people tend to treat the symbols literally. Global warming symbolizes our impact on the environment as a whole, and…

Deforestation

2013 was a wrecking ball for global warming. Avoiding the obvious symbolic incidents such as colder weather, as we look into the climate changer claims none of them seem to be working out. Further, the changers are revising their models. As someone who formerly trusted media to tell me what was right and to tell…

When animals attack!

As satisfying as it is to see a man triumph by calculating his position, adapting to his surroundings and conquering it through logic, it is equally satisfying to see a fool miscalculate, over step his boundaries, and suffer the violent consequences of the untamed wild. This is cosmic justice. This is why it is better…

Subspecies and Classification

Subspecies and Classification Smith, H., Chiszar, D., and Montanucci, R. 1997.  Herpetological Review 28(1):13-16   We regard species as genetically discrete (i.e., separate and independent) populational entities, whereas subspecies are taken as genetically non-discrete (confluent) populational entities. That distinction we regard as axiomatic despite arguments to the contrary (e.g., Barton and Hewitt 1985). The non-discrete…
