How to Read This Blog


To get the most out of this blog, I recommend beginning with the earliest post and proceeding in chronological order. For the most part this blog, like a planning document, builds on data and rationale in a linear manner. You may find value in individual posts taken in isolation, but I suspect your experience will be richer if you follow the intended progression.

Artistic Interlude- Natural History

I could spend thousands of additional words explaining where we've been and where we're going.  Or, you could just look at this mural.

    "Some of the smartest people I know, whose job it is to work in the area of climate change mitigation, don’t understand that its a hopeless problem. These are highly educated professionals with degrees in environmental science and engineering, and years of experience working in development and utilities. They are enthusiastically at work figuring out how to get more solar panels on rooftops and more EVs in garages.

    I have to put on a show like I believe this stuff (for my job), but I’ve tried subtly testing whether these other people really believe they’re saving the world or not. You know, like maybe they know it too but have to hide thier true beliefs as well. But across the board, they are all believers. 100%.

    Its completely taboo to admit a problem is unsolvable, and that things will come to an abrupt end. I think its built in to society, and maybe into our psychology itself. Its powerful enough to put blinders on the smartest people, so that they can’t see what’s in plain sight right in front of them."
