This Is Not the Sixth Extinction. It’s the First Extermination Event.

From the “insect apocalypse” to the “biological annihilation” of 60 percent of all wild animals in the past 50 years, life is careening across every planetary boundary that might stop it from experiencing a “Great Dying” once more. But this atrocity has no goelogical analogue. To call it the “sixth extinction event” is to make what is an active, organized eradication sound like some kind of passive accident. We are in the midst of the First Extermination Event.

Capitalism Isn’t ‘Broken’. It’s Working All Too Well – And We’re the Worse for It

Capitalism is not broken. It is working all too well, concentrating money in the hands of the few by exploiting the work of the many.

Trumpism Goes Global

Trumpism is still a growing global phenomena. It can be halted, but only with a radial programme which is local and global. It won’t be easy. But it’s certainly possible. If not us, then who, if not now, then when?

The Bilderbergers in Switzerland

The conferences of the Bilderbergers are the most secretive events, managed by those who pull the strings behind world leaders – politicians, corporate CEOs, big finance, and other business execs, artists, and the who-is-who of the world elite. And we are talking of the western world. Other than about ten attendees from Turkey, Poland, Bulgaria and Estonia, participants are North Americans or Europeans. The rest of the world doesn’t count.

After Years of Abuse, the Earth Has Sent Its Bill Collectors

This planet’s macro-ecological system does have an undeniable sense of accounting … and it keeps a running tally.

Climate Change: ‘We’ve Created a Civilisation Hell Bent on Destroying Itself – I’m Terrified’, Writes Earth Scientist

Not a day goes by without a new article with details on the unprecedented growth in income inequality and its dire consequences. Something is missing, though.
