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.

Nukes Nukes Nukes!

I understand that being anti-nuke is a religion. People are acting under this fantasy that solar and wind can take over all the necessary energy demands, now and in the future. Meanwhile, more and more coal plants are built, killing millions in the short-term and long.

I mentioned Ezra Klein's excellent recent podcast that exposed the futility of counting on wind and solar. 

This new Freakonomics podcast goes into more detail, even talking with the creator of the ultimately-harmful mini-series Chernobyl. Very well done!

Also, this post by Matt Yglesias is a wonderfully honest exploration of how much we need to do to really address climate change.

PS: I'm going to try to include more pictures and links to music I think you'll like. Here is Neko Case's Night Still Comes.
