The century of Fossil Fuel’s squelching and suppressing advancements in EV tech


My Volt hasn’t shown ANY signs of losing it’s longevity or charging retention. And what I would also say to those who say “No to EVs because the batteries are too undependable and require too much environmentally questionable practices”, is that those are drawbacks and lessen the ecological improvement of EVs over the internal combustion engine, but we have put Continue Reading

Example of “take away our freedom/ruin our economy” nonsense of the Right. Covid and Climate are two peas in a pod for them.


“both religions seek to undermine America, her economy, Constitution, and way of life, taking liberty and freedom away from Americans, replaced with a top-down command and control government dictating our every behavior. Globalism is the goal, a great reset, or a one-world government, controlled by the self-appointed elites who rule over the masses. This is hardly the message taught by Continue Reading


All of the comedic Facebook jokes happening, and as I watch the above, and laugh (cuz Colbert is funny)….I also cringe a little when I see how some of the “blame” for the sociopathic “enflaming” going on is a matter of “the world” expressing itself “writ large” by the microscope and archiving of this human garbage spewing. Do we take Continue Reading

My destination


Addendum to my previous post about my seeking a “next interim step”: a place to hang my hat and/or “lay my head” as I continue the much elongated interim journey to my “low-to-no-carbon-footprint” lifestyle. the 15 months (the last of which is this one, March 2021) . I have been an “1801 resident” have been a much needed “cushion” for Continue Reading

Immanent move from 1801


My good friend Larry Bourgeois created a Facebook “ask for recommendations” page a couple days ago, and I posted this under it a few minutes ago: Thank you Larry, for this initiative in “sounding the call” to fill this “niche” in my ongoing journey’s transitional time. I will make one small correction/clarification: it wouldn’t need to be more than 1 Continue Reading

Being “Volun-told” to offer up Eco-Lenten reflection


This past Sunday night, I was asked in a Zoom Meeting of a Church Community I have been attending, since soon after the pandemic began, if I might provide some reflection on the Ecological angles for Lent. As that meeting had been taking place, and the group leader/facilitator Joe Webb was asking participants about how they might contribute (as he Continue Reading

Facebook failing content creators who assumed their content was easily retrievable


Facebook has really botched user friendliness, for anyone who wished to search for something in their own timeline. That’s pathetic. It’s bad enough that users don’t really have access to their own timeline data without having a PhD level technical degree in the Facebook graph (and even then, their idea of what data belongs to the user who is the Continue Reading

Keeping vigilant about online community possibilities and tools


I’ve often mused about where we might be in Electric Vehicles if we had started back when the Ecological Crisis was brought to the public attention in a big way. (There WAS an early EV that was produced and leased to people back in the early 90’s, but that effort was “mysteriously” (or, NOT so mysteriously) stopped and literally torn Continue Reading
