Overpopulation is Not a Myth, And No, We Cannot All Live in the State of Texas

August 28, 2016 at 1:29 am




“But every person on the planet could fit inside the State of Texas,” people keep telling me when I argue the earth is overpopulated.

I’m so confused by this response.

Of course every person on the planet could fit into the State of Texas. So what? A dozen sardines can fit into a can. But guess what… a dozen sardines can’t live in a can, just like 7 billion people can’t live in the State of Texas.

Documentary calls for dismantling civilization before it’s “too late”

CIV4_SS4Making a case against civilization is about as tough as making a case against agriculture, primarily because most people don’t even know what the word means.

I know this because I’ve tested the theory out. A cashier at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago was complaining about being tired and poor and having to work all the time. At the end of his rant, I shook my head empathetically and said – “civilization sucks.” He responded with the same confused look most people do when I start talking about agriculture or civilization.

Greenpeace Has Turned Into “Frankenstein’s Monster,” Founder Says

March 28, 2016 at 11:10 pm




Greenpeace founder says the organization has been co-opted and now does more harm than good giving destructive, polluting corporations their “green” stamp of approval

greenpeace+detox+challenge“Greenwashing” is an attempt by corporations to cover up environmentally harmful practices by marketing products as “green” or “eco-friendly.’ While saavy consumers are catching on that corporations still care more about the green in our pockets, many of them would be surprised to learn that some of the world’s most prominent environmentalist organizations like Greenpeace and Sierra club have green paint on their hands too.
