Earth Day? No it is the Earth Century!

This was my Earth Day column in 2021 NOTE:  12 years ago I wrote the column below.  I did it because I was getting pitched about Earth Day ideas I should write about.  As in people wanted to tout what they were going to do for Earth Day.  I simply lost it.  Don’t talk to […]

We the People of Planet Earth Can Lead Needed Change

We see the need to stand up – for the planet, for freedom, for the Ukrainians- both for our own integrity and the reality that transformative changes can occur when there are massive numbers of global citizens who are loud, collaborative and collective  in action.

We …….Are…….Demand!

Let’s own the power of all of us publicly standing up for Ukraine and cutting our use of gas so that the world will not need oil from Russia. All the talk is about Supply!  Supply!  Supply!  Oh, what will happen when the supply of Russian oil is cut off?  We need to replace the […]

I Commit to Doing This to Support Ukraine…………..Will You?

I commit to spending 10% less on gasoline until the Russians leave Ukraine. We are all living with the horrific and unnecessary suffering going on now in Ukraine.  The top to bottom tragedy is caused by one man.  A short man who is a dictator and who dreams of a long-ago evil empire and its’ […]

The Collapse of Legacy Thinking About the Workplace

In my last column, I explained why one of the forecasts from “A Look Into 2022 – A Split Screen Year” – the ascendent strength of Labor and employees this decade -was, in fact happening.  I mentioned in that column that what has been called “the Great Resignation” would be looked back upon as the […]

The 2020s: The Pendulum Swings Back to “Labor” and Employees

The 2020s is the decade of increasing power to Labor and Employees.  There will be much more evidence of this in 2022.*   There are a number of reasons why this will occur.  The first, and possibly most significant is that this is cyclical.  This reverses a trend of ever downward household income that began […]

Forecasts for 2022

Historically, January has been the month when I have been asked by various media outlets to speak about what will happen in the new year.  Obviously, people think that a futurist is exactly the right person to whom that question should be asked, and I have been doing so for more than a decade.  I […]

When Will the Frogs Drop from the Sky?

This phrase popped into my head a week ago when I heard that the tallest volcano in Indonesia had a massive eruption.  This on the heels of the volcano in the Canary Islands, the on-going eruption and lava flow in Hawaii.  A search provided the fact that there have been 70 eruptions from 69 volcanos […]
