My Thoughts about President Trump

For some time now I have been trying to think of good things to say about President Trump. But the longer he has been President the fewer things I can think of. I feel that he is out of place for this century… Continue reading

Climate Change: Is it Too Late?

There seems to be an increasing consensus among climate scientist that even if we were to cease all production of man made greenhouse gases it would take as much as a hundred thousand years to return to a more normal state…We have triggered nature to quickly release its own huge stores of greenhouse gases from the oceans, ice, and tundras which have been accumulating and lying dormant for millions of years. We can still make a difference if we act soon. Our influence on Climate Change is still significant. Continue reading

Donald Trump: My Greatest Fears and hopes

I voted enthusiastically for Bernie Sanders in the Primary and ended up reluctantly voting for Hillary Clinton in the General election. But we got now President Donald Trump, not my choice at all for president. I have no choice but to accept the election results very unenthusiastically and apprehensively. What I fear most is Vice President Mike Pence who is a conservative ideologue somehow becoming president. I know exactly what he represents in terms of conservative and religious values… Continue reading

Trump Can’t Possibly Loose

Don’t be fooled by the title. I do not support Trump in any way nor do I hope he wins this election. Looking back in his career he is, by many, viewed as a real estate tycoon. He inherited billions of dollars and has made many real estate investments. But he has filed four major Chapter 11 bankruptcies for many of these ventures since 1991 worth billions of dollars. So as a real estate tycoon he has been overall quite a failure. But what he has learned in all these years is that name recognition means a lot, almost everything… Continue reading

Donald Trump Not the Worst Among Republican Candidates

Let me start by stating that no way will I vote for Donald Trump. I am a strong Bernie Sander supporter and hold quite forward-looking views. So when I look at the Republican party lineup of candidates Donald Trump doesn’t look all that bad to me. Sure he is probably the most narcissistic and super egotistical among them but he is not idealistic. He does not have the same fundamentalist moral and religious fervor of the other candidates or a strong conservative determination to make central government smaller… Continue reading

Extreme Political Grandstanding – Free Media Press

There is a Republican presidential candidate who is a black belt master at political campaign grandstanding. During primaries it is what you say, not what you mean that often gets most press. Primaries are where candidates can make outrageous statements with little consequence just to get ones name in the press and digital media. That is exactly what one candidate who had a reality program and made his fortune largely based upon bluffing is doing with great regularity. Continue reading

2015 UN Paris Climate Summit – Are We Committed?

The first UN Climate Change Summit (COP21) in 20 years convened in Paris just days after the recent Terrorist attacks there. Its goal is to draft legally binding and universal agreements on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 3.6°C… Our nation has officially been a strong advocate for reducing greenhouse gases yet 57% of Republican Congress Members deny anthropomorphic (man caused) Climate Change arguing there is nothing we can do to stem it in spite of universal scientific consensus to the contrary.
