They say people now […]
“Truly a special place,” says the National Park Service online guide. (Pictured: the Mullica River, from wiki commons).

Anyone familiar with Hank D and the Bee (my “comic strip” on EcoSnobberySucks, NaturalPapa, and EcoChildsPlay, and my site of course) may recognize this cartoon.

Being a vagabond is great and all, but I also believe in community and sustainability! How could I accomplish all parts of my equation at once? I mean, isn’t community and sustainability accomplished by living in one location with a group of people, following models of communal or group living, farming, and running co-ops? And isn’t […]

In attraction, a young woman shifts consciously and unconsciously to a physiological desire for a mate, one who she hopes will be a protector to unrealized offspring. All people want to believe […]
Wish you could do more for the world? Tired of receiving presents that you have no need for and just add to our world’s growing piles of waste? Encourage your friends and family to skip the gifts (or return them if it’s too late for that) and donate to a charity of your choosing. […]
Some Virginia Residents Think Oceans Aren't Rising, & Heckling Planners Who Are Trying to Protect Them
The story below immediately made me think of the classic global warming denial cartoon above, and the one below is a good fit too. The story: a number of Virginia residents duped into believing global warming is a hoax are pissed off about local planners changing zoning codes based on growing flood threats. “A […]

I feel like I’m watching some fictitious tragic comedy when checking in on what’s going on in Durban, South Africa. It’s completely ridiculous.
