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.

"Global Sanity"

I'm listening to the 80,000 Hours podcast with Max Roser of Our World In Data. After discussing covid, Rob refers to Roser's earlier work as promoting "Global Sanity." That is -- understanding the world as it really is in order to maximize our work to make it better. 

This reminds me of earlier posts here, such as this one (quoting Roser) and any with Hans Rosling (example). And these graphs (please click for larger):
