About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Life on Earth Is in No Danger

People love apocalyptic rhetoric about climate change - we're going to destroy the Earth, make it "uninhabitable," etc.

Keep in mind that there has been life on this planet for billions of years. During the Eocene -- just a blink of an eye ago, in geologic terms -- the Earth was 14 degrees C warmer than it is now.

Oh, and more than 99% of all species that have ever existed went extinct before humans started using fire.

I know it is easier to talk big about topics over which we have no control. But IMO, we should focus on actually making a difference.
