Now THIS is NEWS!

Last week Nature magazine published findings about a red dwarf sun – Trappist-1- that has seven Earth like planets orbiting it. This is nothing less than a major step forward in answering the question about whether there is intelligent life elsewhere in the Cosmos. It is hard to imagine a more widely wondered question than […]

Climate Change is Physics, Not Politics

The title of this column comes from a column my good friend, co-author of “This Spaceship Earth” and co-founder of ThisSpaceshipEarth.Org Tim Rumage. His column was “Physics is Not Political”. Well worth the quick read. That column came to mind two weeks ago when a very special event occurred. The Wise Elders of the Republican […]

Physical Retail Will Continue to Collapse

2017 will see the continuation of the collapse of physical retail. There will be many more store closings this year following the recent announcements from Macy’s, Sears, and K-Mart. This is something I have been forecasting for years. Back in January 2009 I wrote: “Retailing is in a free fall.  There will be numerous bankruptcies […]

2017 Forecasts – Part Two

In the last column here I discussed the lens of transformation relative to all the change going on in the world today. I also noted the unpredictability of a Trump Presidency and that it will obviously affect some forecasts in degrees.

Crew Help Requested!

In the more than 10 years I have been writing this blog, I have never asked for a favor, nor really promoted anything as that is not what this column is or should be about. That said, I am asking for a favor, and an immediate one at that. Six months ago I co-founded a […]

Sea Level Rise is Now! The State of Denial is Eroding

Climate Change is real. It is happening and it is accelerating. There are many obvious indicators to see for anyone not holding a contrived political filter, those that still live in the rapidly eroding state of denial. Sea level rise can now be seen in the present, not imagined decades down the line. Entire new […]

The Beginning of the End of the Fossil Fuel Era.

In March in this space I wrote a column called “A Major Energy Transition Has Begun”. The key point was my forecast that: “We are at the very beginning of the end of the fossil fuel era. The use of fossil fuels will continue for decades but 2015-2017 will be looked back upon as the […]

The First Time Something is Achieved, It Changes Consciousness

For four days the entire electrical usage of a European country came from renewable energy sources. More on that in a few paragraphs. The thoughts we think and the reality we live in shapes what we think is possible. Time after time barriers are broken that were thought to be impossible. A great example is […]

Crew Consciousness

“There are no passengers on spaceship earth.  We are all crew” – Marshall McLuhan In my prior column, I wrote about R. Buckminster’s forecast from the late 1960s that. in several decades, humanity would reach a fork in the road, utopia or oblivion. In the two years that it took to research and write “This […]

This Spaceship Earth

I have often been asked how I became a futurist. A part of the answer is that, starting in my 20s, I read the three people who, in my mind, were the greatest futurists of the last third of the 20th century: Alvin Toffler, R. Buckminster Fuller and Marshall McLuhan. Toffler wrote about “Future Shock” […]
