Since starting this blogging hobby about the news biz I’ve been shocked to see how often I end up writing backlash against post media or some other shit-ticket’s reckless disregard for the planet. It surprises me cause I’m not an environmentalist.  I care about the environment, think we’re using too much fossil fuels oppose fracking […]

I grew up in a small business family with a Dad working 12 hour days and a mom working at least 8 along side him before tending to us little ones. They owned a small new and used furniture store and also did larger sales to companies for office furniture. My folks paid their employees above […]

The dust bowl, for those who don’t know, was one of the single greatest man made environmental catastrophes in the history of the planet. […]

I have before, whilst ranting, said anyone over the age of 50 should not talk about climate change. Now, I mean it in a more serious way.
