Geoengineering: Dumping Iron in the Ocean

January 16, 2013

Dumping iron in the ocean to save the environment. Its about as logical as saving the economy by bailing out the banks that have destroyed it. Or shooting yourself in the foot to train for a marathon.

Privatizing The Unprofitable

June 15, 2011

A Company needs profitability. Its financial bottom line is very real; stop making money and it will inevitably cease to exist. A government’s bottom line is with its people.

Cycling in Toronto

Working an Ethical Job

May 5, 2009


A very small percentage of the global population is engaged in fulfilling humanity’s needs while at work. Engineers are drawing up faster breaking cell phones, mathematicians assess market data, artists make commercials, philosophers become lawyers, and scientists design make-up for dogs. (more…)
