Horror for Heroes

Horror for Heroes

People who donate money to Help for Heroes are not only backing our government's immoral and unsustainable decision to fight resource wars they are paying an additional (albeit optional) war tax. Furthermore, when they stick their sicker up they are voluntarily furthering the propaganda. Both actions increase the chances of young soldiers from this country being exposed to the horrors of war and prolongs our unsustainable dependency on foreign lands to sustain our way of life.

Flying is bad for your health (AKA Aerotoxic Syndrome)

Transcendent toxic pathogenesis of chemical-exposures inexplicably exceeding their customary characteristics play an ever-larger role in human health in this era of pervasive pollution and chemical assault. Nanopathology may be the key to demystifying modern immune system disorders such as Aerotoxic Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Keep. It. Real.

Keep. It. Real.

We are not talking about how much energy or resources we must use to sustain current ways of living. The whole caboodle is up for grabs. We are talking about: how we should live, how much we should work, how free we should be. We are re-imagining our lives and renegotiating what it means to be human.

This Economy Is Killing Our Planet So Lets Kill This Economy

This Economy Is Killing Our Planet So Lets Kill This Economy

We do have the power to bring this economy down but we have to build the alternative. We can vote for it by spending differently and investing in our own alternative economies and by boycotting corporations and governments. The ultimate crash is coming and when it does the investments we have made locally in the real fabric of our communities and our land is what will actually count.

America arrests its future

America arrests its future

Amoral individuals driven by greed have been handed unfathomable extra wealth and the unsustainable economy has been given fresh gas to splutter forward for a few years longer. In contrast, Bill Mckibben, who has the knowledge, skills and experience to shift the country decisively towards a healthy, sustainable future in which citizens can flourish has been locked up. He has been languishing alone in a tiny cell. Talk about arresting the wrong guy!

Riders of Rohan Assemble! It is CRITICAL MASS

Riders of Rohan Assemble! It is CRITICAL MASS

A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight!! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

Fresh Air Flash Mob Debrief

Fresh Air Flash Mob Debrief

Yesterday evening a group of us met up with Climate Rush in a London square. After a couple of brief rousing speeches we cycled to one of London’s busiest and most polluted junctions and reclaimed it from the cars. Lying on the floor with the pressure of four lanes of motorized traffic baring down, irate drivers pumping their horns and police taking our photos and removing our bikes it did occur to me that we might be mad.

The Best Restaurant in London

The Best Restaurant in London

Indian Veg is an oasis in London. This place was not created to take your money. The whole establishment is a propaganda machine designed to convert you to vegetarianism. Luckily, the main tool in their campaigning arsenal, is the premise that if you give people good, healthy, very tasty vegetarian food; they will choose to eat it.

Air pollution is a problem for other places, for example, Beijing, where all those dirty factories churn out the products we buy... or is it?
