Running Out of Water - Limited Carrying Capacity in Australia, America, Canada and Europe

What is the carrying capacity of America’s landmass? How many more people can its water, energy and other resources sustain?

Chad Pregracke lives on a barge. His life's work is to clean up the Mississippi River

The Mississippi River sweeps millions of bottles, cans, tires, oil, plastic bags and containers, along with junk of every description, and chemicals into the Gulf of Mexico 24/7.

Open Letter to a Network News Program
Speak to what's happening to average Americans
Today, while watching an important broadcast, I was amazed by its omission of serious issues that face the American people at a time when we have a host of major topics that call for comment:

NPG Statement on Population
Negative Population Growth

A Geomoment of Affluence Between Two Austere Eras
Negative Population Growth

During most of human history austerity has been the norm. Only recently have some segments of world population enjoyed an affluent life. But these are very unusual times, far from the norm.

Five Stages of Awareness? (or is it Six?)

I don't know if I have met anyone who is not, at some level, in a state of denial, including the guy I see in the mirror. Call it an essential human 'coping mechanism'

Reflecting on my own "evolution" (without any implication that I am 'improving' or 'progressing' forward), I am now of the impression that many of us...

Virtue in a Jack-Boot: Anthony Browne on Political Correctness

Fear of War led to appeasement and denial of Nazi and Jihadist threat

“We are at war with Islam. Why do otherwise intelligent people insist on saying otherwise?

Time’s Up, Democrats and Republicans! Immigration Has to Be Fixed Now
