    Climate Change Books

    Do you like reading books about climate change? If so, you’re in luck! I’m developing a whole new website that I hope you’ll enjoy.

    Climate Change Books is an online book catalog and book blog with a focus on climate change books. This includes climate fiction, climate nonfiction, climate poetry, and everything in between.

    I’m pleased to announce that I’ve completed my “first draft” of the site! I still have to add a lot of reading lists, reviews, and so on. But it has all of the basics you’ll need to get a sense of what the site is and how readers like you would use it. All that’s left is to get some feedback on the site design and content before I make any more changes or do any promotions.

    That’s where you come in. I’m looking for people who are willing to look at the site and fill out a short Google form survey.

  • Energy Sovereignty, Security, and Democracy in Carbondale, Illinois
    Energy Sovereignty is an approach to energy resources that prioritizes public ownership/decision-making to foster local self-sufficiency, improved capacity, resource conservation, community wealth-building, political autonomy, and lasting economic prosperity.

    On Tuesday, May 23, the City Council of Carbondale, Illinois heard a promising presentation about “Energy Sovereignty, Security, and Democracy” at a regular City Council meeting at the Carbondale Civic Center.

    The full title of the presentation was “Community GHG [Greenhouse Gas] Inventory Baseline 2019 and Energy Sovereignty, Security, and Democracy.”

  • Keep the buffer and run Coalition Life out of town
    Stop The Harassment. Support Clinic Access.

    On May 16, an anti-choice organization called Coalition Life announced that it’s filing a lawsuit in federal court challenging the constitutionality of a Carbondale ordinance that prohibits protestors from approaching people within 100 feet of a medical clinic.

    The article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a good overview of the basics of the situation. Since I live in Carbondale and can’t stand what Coalition Life is doing in our community, I’m here to add a few important points of information and share my commentary on the matter.

    How far are you willing to go to stop the fossil fuel industry from poisoning local communities and disrupting the climate of our entire planet?

    That’s the premise of a new independent film called How to Blow Up a Pipeline.

    Book Review: How To Blow Up A Pipeline

    In honor of the release of the film How to Blow Up a Pipeline, I decided to review the nonfiction book of the same name that inspired the film.

    I’m glad that I did.

    Despite its provocative title, How to Blow Up a Pipeline by Andreas Malm isn’t a how-to manual for aspiring saboteurs. It’s a thought-provoking exploration of the history, ethicality, and strategic considerations of a broad range of violent and nonviolent tactics of resistance to systems of oppression, particularly the fossil fuel industry.
