At a recent meeting of my local Transition group, I and others were asked to write a short description of a positive future. The example used was a set of imaginary observations made on the ground, which I felt incapable of emulating. So I deferred.
Those who know me or my writing might suspect that the problem was that I just couldn’t think of anything positive to say about the future. They might be surprised to learn that the problem was that I just didn’t feel honest about creating even… Continue

They live with cancer, multiple sclerosis, severe digestive and neurological disorders, constant pain and other devastating conditions. For some, allergies prohibit traditional painkillers. For others, traditional western medicine has had no impact – or worse – has actually exacerbated their condition. For each, medical marijuana gives them back their life.

Whether serving as a painkiller,… Continue

Last year, I completed a set of mathematical projections of world population based on consumption of resources. These projections show graphically that we must either increase our supply of resources or suffer massive casualties. These “resources” have been both from the living and nonliving parts of our planet, and access to them is intimately tied to our technologies for their extraction and transportation. We are rapidly reaching the point where, to continue our historical growth, we will be… Continue
