About Us

This blog started out to be about the environment and how global warming was changing our the physical face of our earth.

The more I read and the more I wrote I begin to see that it wasn’t only climate that was changing.  Very suddenly our beliefs, societies, politics and institutions are all in the midst of rapid change.  And all of these things are related.  And unfortunately they all seem to be mostly out of human control at this point.

So here are my thoughts and the thoughts of a lot of other people on our earth and on our new lives.

Each of the articles in the blog is headed by a photograph of our earth.  It’s beginning to look like nature is not going to look the way it does now for too much longer, so I thought I might as well put up as many pictures as I can of the once and soon to be earth.

I was a professional landscape photographer for about twenty years, from 1990 until 2010.  During those years I built up a collection of several thousand photographs of National Parks and other spots that I thought were beautiful.  So I’ve got a lot of images to put on this site.  

If you would like an image, please help yourself.  They are not all that large but they should print up fairly well.

As to who I am, I am basically I’m a guy who has always loved the mountains and rivers and deserts of America.  I’ve always been a hiker and a backpacker and biker in the wild and semi-wild lands of America.  For awhile, until I got too old,  I was also a kayaker and a whitewater rafter and an amateur mountaineer.

And finally, I’m also a guy who is very worried about what is to become of the earth and of our human societies and institutions.



One of my favorite spots in the world, Teton National Park in Wyoming.
