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.

More from Less

I finally got Andrew McAfee's book More from Less from the library. (Later addendum: One criticism of the book is that it doesn't do a balanced accounting of the US economy. Here is a reply.)

One highlight of the book is to give perspective on just how wrong so many people have been in the past. Andrew writes: "To give an idea of the prevailing mood, beliefs, and predictions of the mainstream environmental movement around [the original 1970] Earth Day, here are a set of quotes [screenshot below] that I find representative. They read to me like dispatches from a society in a panic attack."
