Your Daily Environment, Day 005, National Review, July 26, 2019

on July 26, 2019 in Nature

Today I looked at the National Review. According to the site: “National Review was founded in 1955 by William F. Buckley Jr. as a magazine of conservative opinion. The magazine has since defined the modern conservative movement and enjoys the broadest allegiance among American conservatives.” For some reason people associate environmental issues with liberals and the left. We all share the same air, land, and water and we all vote[…] Keep reading →

Your Daily Environment, Day 004, Salon.com, July 25, 2019

on July 25, 2019 in Nature

Considering spraying snow on Antarctica, as Salon reports scientists considering, raises questions about the role of technology regarding our environmental issues. Here are my extemporaneous comments: For more depth on my point about strategy and tactics, listen to my podcast episode 183: Reusing and recycling are tactical. Reducing is strategic.

Your Daily Environment, 003: Trevor Noah on plastic and science doesn’t motivate

on July 24, 2019 in Audio, Nature

Day 003 address two emails from friends. The first told me about a segment Trevor Noah and the Daily Show did on plastic: fewer countries are accepting America’s garbage. We’re going to have to deal with it ourselves. The problem with the coverage? It barely treated the only viable solution: reducing production. What it treated it joked about. It’s a comedy show, that’s it’s point, so I don’t begrudge it.[…] Keep reading →

Your Daily Environment, day 002: The Environment as a Moon Shot

on July 23, 2019 in Nature

Day 002 is on the environment as a moon shot. What is a moon shot? What does it mean for something besides going to the moon to be a moon shot? I talk about what everyone gets wrong about the environment and what we stand to gain by acting on our environmental values even if no one else does.

Your Daily Environment, day 001: The New York Times

on July 22, 2019 in Audio, Nature, Visualization

I’ve thought about recording news talk, like AM radio hosts, from an environmental leadership standpoint for a month or so. I’ve learned the way to learn is to start. I don’t know if the best way is audio only, video, showing me talking to the camera, showing the news, etc. Should I start a channel? What host should I use? How long should I make each episode? Should I prepare?[…] Keep reading →

Where to buy the best food around New York City

on July 21, 2019 in Fitness, Nature

The main reason I look like I do in yesterday’s picture, reproduced here, is where I get my food. Anyone who eats food I cook hears me unable to contain how much I love it. I probably eat to more satisfaction than anyone I know. I feel full, even stuffed, after every meal, yet I eat fewer calories. My food tastes sweeter than ever, yet I eat less sugar. I[…] Keep reading →

More Joy of Life Without the Crutch of Flying

on July 19, 2019 in Freedom, Nature

An article stating that “taking one flight emits as much as many people do in a year” led me to post the following on the site that linked to it. I thought it captured my feelings on flying since then. Learning information like this finally led me to take responsibility for my actions that affected others. I challenged myself to go one year without flying. Like everyone, I have family[…] Keep reading →
