Vermont’s Bernie Sanders and His Argument Against the Bailout

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is a national treasure. He never fails to speak his mind with passion and clarity. Too often he is dismissed as the kookie-haired Senator from the bluest state in the nation. (And Proud of It!) But Bernie is a man of the people. And in these times when it is difficult to see where Washington stops and Corporate America begins, public servants like Sanders are rare and valuable. Case in point. Bush, McCain, and fellow cronies are in the process of socializing Wall Street as a means of avoiding a the total collapse of our economy that their unregulated “trickle-down-economics” has been flirting with for the better part of the last few years. At its core this simply means that American taxpayers are bailing out the companies that are foreclosing on our homes, calling in our loans, and canceling our lines of credit. The upper-class economy has been booming at the expense of the middle-class economy and suddenly the American economy is in trouble. And we’re supposed to reward the greedy and corrupt by buying their companies. Bernie Sanders has something to say about that. If you have time, this argument against the bailout as proposed is worth watching.

Climate Change & the End of Stationarity

Just as predicting the rise of Donald Trump as a leading presidential candidate stumped even the best of political analysts (looking at you Nate “FiveThirtyEight” Silver), the advent of the Sixth Great Extinction due to climate change and an increasingly potent mix of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has completely upended how we predict the […] Read More

Use Simple Games to Better Understand Climate Change

How is it that emissions keep growing despite rising concern about the climate change they cause? It is possible to identify several reasons for the paradox, most of which lie outside the scope of The Climate Change Playbook. But one important reason is relevant here: people do not understand the behaviors of the climate system.And […] Read More
