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.

Sigh. And plants!

In his Labor Day email, Bill McKibben writes:

The climate crisis is the deepest problem humans have ever faced

Now I generally like Bill, but I grow weary of the hyperbole. (I have a long chapter in Losing My Religions about this; it is the worst chapter in that it is very rant-y.) 

But in short, the climate crisis isn't the deepest problem humans have faced in the past century, or even in my lifetime, let alone all of human history

Enough of my rants. Here's a picture from today of a sunflower getting ready to emerge:


And some weird plants:
