    We shall see if this blows over, but the Commander in Chief of the US armed forces is clearly off his rockers and certifiably insane, if we're being honest. That was also the case with Hitler and...

    Hi DT, to be clear, I am not trying to be gloaty or unkind, I think the entire technosphere (Dmitry Orlov's phrase, originally by way of Vladimir Putin) or in other words, Industrial Civilisation in...

    Australia was always subject to multi-year droughts, they tend to come and go, but the overall warming / drying trend is unmistakeable. It is a pity because Australia is already the driest and...

    I'll be honest, I simply don't watch videos that are more than a few minutes long. I don't have the time or patience, plus I'm rarely in a situation where I can comfortably watch a long video. I may...
