Sanders vs. Clinton

On 19th of June Salon.com (1) published an article by Bill Curry (2). Mr. Curry is, or was, a politician, an adviser to president Clinton the First. Now Mr. Curry writes for Salon. Mr. Curry accomplished to endorse Bernie Sanders without insulting Hillary Clinton. Good job, Mr. Curry. The headline alone tells the whole story. The trap is set for Clinton because the future belongs to Sanders. Or rather to the ideas he is running on and Ms. Clinton still believes in the old ways, which led us...

The Ubuntu Movement and Climate Change

The state of the world must be really bad, Why else would there be so many prophets of a better future. If you would just follow the instructions please and everything will be just fine. Paradise, the Messiah, Peace and Love and Understanding! I wish it would be so. I agree with the premise of how bad the state of the world is and I don’t think it will get better any time soon. On the contrary, considering the growing world population and a possible Climate Change, the chances are it will...

350 ppm – 400 ppm CO2, Who Gives A H**k?

Once upon a time, not so long ago, about 200 years prior, the earth atmosphere contained about 275 parts per million of carbon dioxide(1). Since then it has been rapidly risen. In 1958 the biochemist Charles David Keeling measured, at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, 315 ppm (parts per million)  Carbon Dioxide in the earth atmosphere (2). The Keeling Curve is named after him (3). Since then we have been told, that 350 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere is the threshold, where the balance...

Mutual Profits

As I already stated in one of my former articles about Co-operatives, I am a member of the Ha’Bar Kayma (1). This specific co-op runs a Vegan restaurant in Tel Aviv, 22 Ha’mashbir Str. Everyone is welcome to enjoy a nice meal in a nice atmosphere. And this for a reasonable price, for a non- member. A member of the co-op pays even less, since they already paid the membership fee. Friends, who know me for years, ask what my profit would be. And they always come with this simple...

In the year 2011 a wave of social protest ignited all over the world. It was indeed a international occurrence. It started in Spain and jumped over to North Africa in what is called, the Arab Spring. In the USA people started to Occupy-Wall Street. And let’s not forget the Tea Party, which comes from the other side of the political spectrum, but with legitimate grievances nonetheless. Anyway a big chunk of the world seems to be in unrest. And never mind the political affiliations. People...
