Curiosity is Not Alone in Killing the Cat

A curiosity moment led me to wonder, “Just what are the most probable causes of the Apocalypse and if any, the percentages of certainty?” I found many articles and many opinions on the subject and very little speculation or mathematics on how to rate each catastrophe with a percentage of ‘Most Likely’ to happen. What […]

Global Warming Is Not Intuitive

Science is not always intuitive.  Science is often counter-intuitive.  We humans like to keep things simple.  We also like to answer the question “Why?”  Thus we look at nature and when there is no immediate, obvious, answer we, over time, have been inclined to just give God credit.  The result has been a slow response […]

Ben Carson Humor – 2015

Ben Carson is that neuro guy – which seems to be an enigma given his loose tongue.  No matter – there are some really creative people running around with high tech opportunities to mix humor, politics, and technology. Enjoy:

NASA – Visualization of Global Warming

Imagine Pat Robertson and NASA agreeing on anything.  The anti-scientist and the pure manifestation of science are on the same page.  Pat Robertson recently spoke on Global Warming on the 700 Club television spectacle, saying, They are defending the society. But I tell you stay in doors ladies and gentleman. Stay cool. Get fans or […]

Illegal Immigrants Cause Global Warming

It is hot in Missouri – the folks who know are saying it is hotter than it was the last time it was hot – and I believe them.  And I know why.  Global Warming, it is as simple as that.  But the cause has been uncovered with some simple research conducted at the South […]

The Gulf Oil Spill is the Dust Bowl of the Gulf States

Another catastrophe of man made destruction has struck the Gulf of Mexico – threatening the coastal region with chaos.  Chaos to both nature and human economics.  One goofy GOP Congressman stated that nature would absorb the oil – not to worry.  The Dust Bowl of the 1930’s ravaged the Midwest but nature eventually reclaimed the […]

Obama, Oil, And Rational Leadership

I wanted a new car – but I didn’t have the money.  I wanted to go skiing at Aspen – but I didn’t have the money.  I bought a good used car for cash and drove it to the local Missouri ski slopes.  I am relaxing today with my feet immersed in hot salt water […]

Dick Cheney’s Pre-Existing Condition

To say that a snow storm in Washington D. C. proves there is no global warming is like saying that Dick Cheney received good health care proves there is no need for health care reform.  Cheney has had five heart attacks – the first when he was in his late thirties.  He has changed jobs […]

Steven Colbert, FOX, and Global Warming

It is February – in North America.  It is snowing, and the temperature hovers around freezing.  In two months it will be April, the average daily temperature will hover around 55-60 degrees.  What can this possibly mean?  Can this mean that North America’s climate is seasonal – or does this mean the global weather is […]

THe Finer Points of Space Exploration

I was eight years old when the Soviet Union launched the first orbiting Satellite, sputnik. The space race began as a competition of pride between two countries determined to prove them selves as more advanced than the other. It became something of much greater importance. Our space exploration has produced, energized, and accelerated some of […]

Wind and Wild, energy and nature

The Global Warming phenomenon is powerful. People across this great country are taking action. They are not waiting for an Act of Congress to be responsible. I drove the rural countryside on Saturday, traveling deep into the Missouri hills. Along the way I saw a sight right out of a Holland Science Fiction movie. There […]

Gustav – A Message From God?

When Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast of the United States the reaction of the populace varied from the scientific to the religious. The scientists said the magnitude of the hurricane could be attributed to Global Warming.  Some fundamentalist theologians argued Katrina was sent by God to punish New Orleans for sinful ways. We use […]

Included in this post are excerpts from a previous post.  Added here are commentary from T. Boone Pickens on CNBS discussing the economics of energy.  We can check the video and then discuss the harmony of wind energy with nature. Pickens speaks economically of the great wind corridor stretching from Texas to Canada.  I live […]

Making Fun of Christians – or just making fun?

Son, Humor is the essence of sanity. Check out these videos. Humor has been my salvation, relieving me of the insane conflict of being a human – aware of myself and others – and aware of faith as both inspiration and superstition. Christian jokes abound – fueling awareness of human conflict. But what is humor […]

Thundersnow and Global Warming – The Mid West Takes a Beating

Dad, You mentioned thunder and snow in your article about the Midwestern storms that are covering us in a post-Christmas winter wonderland   I have noticed the lightning, thunder and snow several times in the last couple of weeks.  I have never seenor heard that before, so I looked it up.  Wikipedia says this about thundersnow: […]

A Sense of Hope, A Sense of Destiny…. Kennedy

Son, Inspiring events are happening in America. Civil Rights, Social Justice, workers, disabled, education, voters rights, quality Health Care, Senator Edward Kennedy. There is a movement afoot, and the Republicans will not be able to stop it. Senator Kennedy is endorsing Mr. Obama as I write and I can barely keep up. “…Courage, insight, bold […]

Trash Talk – the elixir of life

 Son, Trash talk is the elixir of life, the stimulus of humanity, the foreplay of debate, a ceremonial dance before the big event.  Trash Talk is the spirit of politics, sports, scientific innovation, and even religion.  Minus Trash Talk, nothing is left. Did you ever notice two boxers at their weigh-in.  One might think it […]

Economies of Scale and Dumpster Diving

Son, There is great interest in recycling. And there should be – we are probably experiencing the most wasteful society in history. Global views of business and economy have distracted us from understanding individual need. But mass production outweighs, or at least minimizes, waste. I remember when I went to work in the world of […]

Al Gore – polarizing Global Warming

Son, You recently did a post that featured a video by John Stossel. The video was clearly against the concept that man is contributing to Global Warming. You and I talked before you created this post and you and I both agreed that this is not a time for finger pointing – it is a […]

The fearists of Climate Change…

Dad. I watched the video that you sent. I am adding it below for those of us who are not you and me. As I said in a previous post, I respect Al Gore for what he has accomplished, and I encourage everyone to do his or her part to live responsibly. This video points […]

Making mulch – saving the planet

Son, This awareness of Global Warming is a real pain in the neck. At every turn I am reminded that I must be more resourceful. Life was so much easier when blundering around in ignorance. So, here is my current problem, I receive a great deal of junk mail. What are you gonna do? I […]

Al Gore or Gandhi?

Dad, Like all of his other supporters, I would like to congratulate Al Gore on winning the Nobel Peace Prize. He has big shoes to fill. On February 2, 1977, Jimmy Carter addressed the nation in a cardigan sweater and asked us all to do our part and turn down our thermostat and wear a […]

Al Gore – Ozone Man

Son, The sweet smell of vindication. Time will ultimately tell the truth. Al Gore has been awarded the Nobel Prize for his lifetime achievement in bringing the issue of Global Warming to the attention of humanity. In 1992 Al Gore was a Vice Presidential Candidate, running with Bill Clinton on the Democratic ticket. They were […]

Strategies for reducing energy – and other lifestyles

Son,I am very pleased with your awareness of your impact on the environment. I was in my twenties during the gasoline crunch of the 1970’s. Conserving was all the rage – for all the wrong reasons. It was about money – about saving money for yourself. That can be a strong motivator – but as […]

reducing my energy consumption…

Dad, I have been thinking a lot lately about how much energy I use. I try to evaluate my lifestyle all the time to find out if I can improve and better live out the values that I claim to have. I just read an interesting article on phantom power, and there is a good […]

Economic Conservative or Social Liberal?

Son, I like to tell people that I am an Economic Conservative and a Social Liberal. Are these opposing forces? That depends on how the News Media defines the terms. The problem with labels is the inflexibility of thought or compromise. When I think of Economic Conservative I think of being cautious with my money. […]
