For all Marys – Mothers, Lovers, Helpers

“My Goddess Gave Birth to Your God” reads the bumper sticker.  The growing notion that God is not just and only male is well known in our UU churches and in other niches in society.  Feminism has grown with us for decades and centuries.  Gradually, it spreads around the world, bringing women status, freedoms, compensation, and rights in societies where patriarchy has ruled unquestioned for millennia.  We need the Divine Mother, not just Our Father.  But let’s also be careful to not just honor the…

Good Earthkeeping Tools and Trends from August, 2018

While CNN, Forbes, MSNBC, and Business Insider all jump on Elon Musk and Tesla as if he and it are about to fail, Tesla keeps making cars and money. Short-sellers bet against such companies, hoping they’ll fail. Perhaps some promote negative stories to push that process. But Tesla keeps winning.

Good Earthkeeping Tools and Trends – July, 2018

Every Tuesday morning I report at KSKQ radio about those policies and technologies that are helping rescue our environment (or that hurt it).  I've decided to post them here (Sorry the formatting is lost; I can't lay it out in a more attractive way): KSKQ 7-3-18 Good Earthkeeping Tools and Trends May was the fourth warmest May on record since measurements started in 1880.  Now, some 6,300 metrological stations take the measurements. https://climate.nasa.gov/news/2750/may-2018-was-fourth-warmest-may-on-record/ The ice is melting in Antarctica far faster than usual.  Combined measurements…

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, Lungs, and Future

Don't let the lovely sunset image fool you.  Taken weeks ago, the smoky skies here have gotten worse.  There are fires all over the west coast, burning the grasses, trees, cars, and houses in their way. I recently tried to escape to Mt. Shasta, but it was as bad there; it is impacted by fires up near Ashland and a huge one down at poor, hot Redding, California. There have always been fires.  There have always been storms.  There have often been heat-waves.  What gets…

You are Here, Now: a Geology Report

You are Here, Now: a Geology Report Breaking news!  Continents Clash! But slowly.  The Pacific Ocean once beached near here where Ashland later grew.  The whole continent we now know as North America slowly slid westward over the hot magma underlying it.  The remnants of southeastern Oregon mountains started as volcanos blasting out of the same huge hot spot that now underlays Yellowstone.  The hot spot didn’t move; the continent pushed westward above it.  Similarly, Hawaii is pushing northwest over a hot spot now generating…

Earth’s Eden: Love it or Lose it

And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:31) We are born of and live in Eden, and it lives in us.  We are made of it and for it. By Eden I don’t mean a mythical land of a biblical past, I mean the actual garden bible writers once loved, and I mean the rest of the garden that we should love.  Eden suffers both blunder and attack by us humans, exponentially-so in the last two hundred…
