A child of climate crisis, Greta Thunberg has become a champion in search of solidarity to reclaim our future. And the new documentary I Am Greta is her statement of purpose.
A decade ago, I wrote about the myriad ways our planet would refuse to put up with us. Today, I look back, during a global lockdown, as a zoonotic dystopia borne from our ceaseless invasion of Earth ravages so-called civilization.
Zoonoses are infectious diseases that fatally strike back after humanity extracts too deeply from their non-human environments, which are under repeated siege from capitalism and worse.
We’re on the right track to solarization. We just need speed up the pace, brighen up this planet, and save our sorry asses.
As colonies collapse and the climate crisis accelerates, bees come into deeper focus in the acclaimed chronicle of a remote space and tradition
Captivated by global warming and shortly before I called it cli-fi, I researched and reported the myriad ways life on Earth could die. Few were more terrifying than hydrogen sulfide.
A decade ago, I talked to the Pacific Institute about their report predicting that the coastal metropolis of California, the world’s fifth largest economy, would be swallowed by global warming.
A quarter of a century ago, I turned my back on our revolution. As the reprogramming accelerated, I slowed time by pursuing love. But it was not enough.

[This callout has been syndicated here on HuffPo.] After America’s Veteran’s Day militarism hangover, I scanned what few trustworthy journalism outlets are left but still couldn’t avoid the headhunters. They […]
I spoke with A Fierce Green Fire‘s director Mark Kitchell.

“A nomination would be an incredible longshot. But our hope is that it would bring a lot of significant attention to climate change, because this is the issue of our time.”
