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.

The Future of Humanity?

As I've written elsewhere, technology will be one of the drivers of de facto animal liberation. But as someone who lived through the Cold War and remembers fearing nuclear annihilation (my speech at high school graduation in 1986 was about the threat of nuclear war), there is always the question of the potential downsides of technology.

Today, even as we reap the benefits of rapidly advancing technology, we face different existential risks. This Atlantic article:  But What Would the End of Humanity Mean for Me? covers the thoughts of some of the smartest people around today.
