About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Two Good Analyses (including the best bit I've read in 2022 so far)

I have been a fan of Mark Lynas, a former anti-GMO activist turned pro-GMO and pro-nuclear power writer. But this takedown of his latest book on climate change shows that he has reverted to his previous ways. More; follow-up.

The latest by Max Roser at Our World in Data - The world is much better; The world is awful; The world can be much better - is really excellent. I wish I had written it. The most important piece I've read in 2022 so far, I think. We are lucky to have Max.
