Climate Change Polarization

By Micah Moen 3 Comments October 8, 2019

Climate change is a polarizing subject, and THAT could be a bigger problem than climate change itself. The conflict-driven news media have successfully framed the debate as a one or the other proposition. You either believe in catastrophic man-caused global warming or you are a climate change denier. That’s a load of bull squirt and […]

You can kiss a girl and like it, no problem. But if you lecture the rest of us about carbon dioxide emissions while on a yacht at a bogus climate conference, […]

By Micah Moen 0 Comment September 11, 2019

It’s one of the questions we hear most frequently about the climate crisis: Are we too late? Have we already cooked in dangerous climate change for our kids — and theirs?

ENGINEERING MYTH: Renewable energy isn’t the solution

By Micah Moen 43 Comments September 1, 2019

– Hi, everyone, I’m Jess, I am a mechanical engineer currently working at an ecological institute. I make videos about engineering technology and conservation. I find that engineers have a very objective way to solve a problem. Sometimes this is actually good because that’s how engineers solve problems very efficiently. But in the case of […]

Here retreat is no longer an option. The Mekong River, it’s the last stand before 2,000 tons of trash flow into the Pacific Ocean each day. 730,000 tons of trash a year that flow straight into the Pacific Ocean, must be stopped.

It lives only at that moment; it has to surrender to it completely and explain itself to it without losing any time.” “A story is different. It does not expend itself. It preserves and concentrates its strength and is capable of […]
