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.

OK, I'll stop. (Carl Sagan)

In Losing My Religions, I have a chapter, “Greta Thunberg’s misery is the result of child abuse.” 

Yesterday, I came across this Carl Sagan quote in the center-right newsletter Faster, Please:

“The visions we offer our children shape the future. It matters what those visions are. Often they become self-fulfilling prophecies. Dreams are maps.” 

My first thought was to add that to the book. But I have to stop adding -- before I published the pdf last week, I was editing and adding every day.
