1. What Did You Do Once You Knew?

What did you do once you knew, boomer warrior

It’s 3:23 in the morning, and I’m awake because my great, great, grandchildren won’t let me sleep.
My great, great, grandchildren ask me in dreams
What did you do, while the planet was plundered?
What did you do, when the earth was unraveling?
Surely you did something when the seasons started failing as the mammals, reptiles and birds were all dying?
Did you fill the streets with protest when democracy was stolen?

What did you do Once You Knew?

2. Hope is Back

Hope is Back, boomer warrior

I’ll tell you something that should chill your blood. No matter how far we tip the scales our way, no matter how many of them we turn dark, nothin’ seems to break their capacity for hope. They pass it back and forth like the flu at a preschool fair. We’re losing, Lucifer. One bright star at a time, we’re losing. (from the movie Winter’s Tale)

3. Climate Change Awareness Deficit? Blame the Media

Climate Change Awareness Deficit? Blame the Media, boomerwarrior

Even if you believe that Climate Change is real, and I think about it every single day, then what are your thoughts on how the mainstream media reports on these issues: climate change, global warming, ocean acidification, species extinction, ecocide, oil spills, putting a price on carbon.

4. There Are Too Many of Us

There are too many of us, boomer, warrior,

There is an absolutely crucial mathematical reality called exponential growth. If population grows at  1 percent a year, it will double in seventy two years, 2 percent a year, it’ll double in thirty five years, 3 percent a year, twenty four years. You get the idea.

5. The Chilling Reality of the Climate Challenge

The chilling reality of the climate challenge

In his recent article in Rolling Stone, Al Gore argues that humanity is on the right track. He is confident that “a powerful largely unnoticed shift is taking place.” But the enormity of our climate challenge is daunting and a sobering reminder that, as the old saying goes, we have miles to go before we sleep.

  1. Rolly,

    Just heard you on GreenDivas via Care2. Motivated me to come and say “loved it”, now I have a voice to put with the picture and wise writings.

    Have never understood why any parent cannot be anything, but (a) environmentalist and (b) peace-nik….would think they would want to give their children (and all future generations of their children) a safer, healthier, clean, beautiful world…..

    Hope we get to hear you more on-line in 2015!
