My new article... about how global warming "doomsday" is already here. Time to behave like adults and deal with it.

I felt inspired to write this article today, in response to the idea that Facebook newsfeed algorithms are to blame for the predicaments we are in...

I wrote this article today while flying home from a conference. It is deeply person -- as I am feeling into what it will be like to raise my unborn child in a world on the brink of planetary collapse.

Sit seriously with this one...

I wrote this article to express how difficult it can be to make sense of the world when so much propaganda is all around us. There has literally been MORE THAN A BILLION DOLLARS spent on the presidential campaign in the US to influence, confuse, and manipulate public opinion.

Add to this the billions more spent in all the marketing departments of the world and it is no surprise that discerning the truth is so difficult to do. Together we can make sense of things and navigate real-world threats. In isolation, we will be overwhelmed and break down.

Onward, fellow humans.

It is time for political revolution... which means we must now awaken to our true power as social regulators of ethical behavior in our communities.

Onward, fellow humans.

Full disclosure: I chose not to apply for the MacArthur Foundation grant for $100 million. My reasoning has to do with a variety of political and organizational factors -- which are sketched out in this article.

The brief answer is that I felt the need for moral integrity of the work and didn't want to risk placing it so close to the power structures of money at this fledgling stage of development.

Do you think this is the right path? How shall we (as 7.4 billion humans on Earth) move forward from here?

Time is of the essence and much is at stake. How we answer these questions will have profound consequences for future generations...

Onward, fellow humans.

I awoke this morning and felt inspired to write again... this article explores the intelligence of all living things as a process of connection.
With it comes lessons for how to navigate the convergence of crises humanity is now facing.

This new article is more personal -- how I am struggling with the demands of life while becoming a father. And how it feels to live in the paradox of existence through these profound times in the history of the Earth.

Onward, fellow humans.
