Matthew Rankin’s surreal, synesthesic short film The Tesla World Light is finally free for all to see. Let us hope Nikola Tesla’s utopian hope for free energy isn’t far behind.
One of our most persistent fictions of climate change is that the food industry, whose waste and emissions must be brought under immediate control if we are to survive the Anthropocene, can live without immigrants, whose existence puts the lie to nations and nationalism.
My latest investigation for Civil Eats is not so much alarming as predictable. The current presidential administration, already an international laughingstock, has targeted farmers markets for elimination. The punishment? Death by pointless cuts.
In a globally warming, warring world where Americans throw away half the food they grow, nourishing activism with a heart and mind in service of renewable peace is paramount. Enter author Julia Turshen, who I profiled for Civil Eats.
This investigation for Civil Eats is about the terminology we take for granted so that billions of dollars can exchange hands in the organic market, as we throw away over a third of the food we ask our burning Earth to provide us.
My latest piece for Civil Eats chronicles the victory of sanity over nonsense, Earth over concrete, regeneration over regression. It was an honor to write, and even more brilliant to witness in person.
Another great perk writing for the conscientious Civil Eats? Greens from across the sociocultural spectrum sharing my data.
Al Gore once famously asked, “Well, what can you do?”
One of the great things about writing for Civil Eats is that I get a chance to explore several existential concerns at once. For my second piece, I was lucky enough to analyze and evangelize solarization, decarbonization and an agricultural infrastructure with a future.
Earth seeds itself. Then we get involved. Then you get what we have, right now: An extinction. From the makers of Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us?, another exploration of an apocalypse we manufactured with our own hearts and minds.
I dove into the data of corporate solar and wind adoption for The Guardian. Corporations are stepping up their renewable energy investment and infrastructure, and there’s no going back, no matter who wins what election.
Leonardo DiCaprio has been invested in global warming. His latest exploration of extinction and Earth is upon us.

Hillary Clinton has appointed Ken Salazar as the head of her transition team. This is a major problem.
It was just a matter of time before Tesla Motors and SolarCity synergized.
Can an earnest but alarming cartoon help stop the 500 companies, investors and governments deforesting the Earth to crisis?
Louisiana has a choice to make on solar.
Because they’re too comfortable setting their sights too low.
The solar industry has added jobs to the American economy at 10 times the national average.
Not bad for a renewable energy upstart.
You bet your Union, Jack.
Governor Brown’s goals will create billions and slash millions.
Sooner than later, it will likely take over electricity markets worldwide.
That’s the street translation.
