Freeing the Ecological Economics from the Status Quo

I have often heard said something like this: “It would nice to achieve renewable energy dominance , but it just isn’t economically likely; it just doesn’t make economic sense yet”. I disagree. It already does make economic sense. Our problem is that the levers of economic incentive have been placed in the opposite direction, in support of propping up the Continue Reading

Contemplating the achievement of Earth Justice

A Southerner contemplates the “horror” of the end of “a way of life” that is now seen for the evil racism at worst, or else the moral denial of the evil of it in light of what it meant to “pull the rug out” from the southern economy. (The latter is not exactly “enlightened” either). https://www.vox.com/…/confederate-memorial-day-racism-civil… “What Southern man, be Continue Reading

The Post

I watched the movie “The Post” last night. It gave me the idea of writing about our civilization’s lack of response to the Ecological Crisis in a similar fashion to my post yesterday about re: how our response to this crisis is very similar to the way people responded to slavery. The Washington Post faced a dilemma regarding their duty Continue Reading

If I were to give it a title* , it would be “Constantine and Climate Change”. It is a good introduction to this line of thought to quote the following : “It’s hard to Continue Reading

Wesley would be an EcoReformer

I am sharing this post from UMNS (https://www.facebook.com/umnews/posts/10155451735784531) to share my own contribution to the thread on this, and you can guess, if you’ve been reading my posts over the past year, what ‘reforms’ I will suggest. The UMNS post:  “As the Reformation’s 500th anniversary draws to a close, the Rev. Alfred T. Day III reflects on what Wesleyans add Continue Reading

This “stunning portrayal of a common creation”

“As Larry Rasmussen said, science offers us “the stunning portrayal of a common creation in which we are radically united with all things living and non-living, here and into endless reaches of space, and at the same time radically diverse and individuated. . . . And all of it is not only profoundly inter-related and inseparably interdependent but highly fine-tuned Continue Reading

It’s not just trolling; it’s disobedience unto death

Something has been eating at me psychologically this past 24 hours. Upon yet another exposure to some nasty trolling behavior by a “Christian” Fundamentalist on the page of a good friend and fellow earth keeper, Terry Tremwel, I have been struck with the danger in this kind of “Christianity”. It is far worse than other kinds of political or even Continue Reading
