Episode 6: When Human Law and Natural Laws Conflict, Nature Always Wins

5/20/2024
Send us a Text Message. The authorities around the world, both in government and business, want the impossible. In fact they demand it. They want continued growth, continued and even expanded exploitation of both people and the Earth, as resources to increase their own personal wealth and power. Nature will not and cannot comply. Nature is finite and after many decades of abuse, of receiving gigatons of excessive CO2 and toxins of every sort, Nature is changing and becoming hostile to humans. This civilization is dooming itself. WE, the sane and caring people of Earth, must prepare to take charge and save this sinking climate for our children and for the future of our entire world.

Episode 5: The Declining Nations

5/13/2024
Send us a Text Message. What we think of as the most powerful nations on Earth are in decline, a rapid decline. It's a fall of their own making. They achieved and maintained their dominance in part by exploiting fossil fuels more successfully that other countries. They, and all of us, are victims of their "success." We will need to seize control from failed nations—and indeed nationalism itself is a huge failure—to stabilize our collapsing climate and rescue the planet so that our children will have a habitable place to live.

Episode 4: Cost of Crisis

4/29/2024
Send us a Text Message. We live in a world of neoliberalism and neo-classical economics. These false gods are the engine behind the fast-paced destruction of our biosphere and our accelerating path to climate collapse. This is insane, and sane people won't stand for it. Let's look at the real problems and how we can overcome stupidity and bad leadership to fix them. Please also check out the website WeAreSaners.org—which is the hub of our growing climate movement.

Episode 3: Why I No Longer Favor Working Through the System

4/22/2024
Send us a Text Message. It's become clear that the system is aligned with Big Oil and against us, against our children and against our planet. They want to maximize profits and humans and the Earth are simply tools to earn more money. Neither has any value in our neoclassical plutocracy. We must defy the system, refuse to obey, and use smart non-violent tactics if we want a future for our children and our species. Here's how I came to that conclusion and what we must do next.

Episode 2: The COP Meetings - 28 Years of Failure

4/15/2024
Send us a Text Message. The authorities have held 28 consecutive international climate meetings, called Council of Parties, or COP. All of these meetings have accomplished nothing: CO2 emissions are increasing and there is literally not even a plan to effectively deal with the crisis. We intend to go beyond those meetings, and those worse than useless so-called authorities and leaders. We intend to work with people of competence and ability to address the crisis—notably climate scientists. Our hope for the future is with US—sane and caring people ready to act over the heads of the systems and people who hold—and abuse—formal authority. Here's our view.

Episode 1: The Alternative to Our Evil Society Isn't Chaos and Nihilism. It's LIFE.

4/8/2024
Send us a Text Message. Political and corporate leaders would have you believe that they have things under control and that the only alternative to THEIR way is chaos. That's a lie. Their way, the way we are going, we are cooking the Earth and dooming our children and other species and the entire biosphere that sustains us. The only real alternative is to ditch their ways and adopt a science-based emergency plan to prevent climate collapse. That's we we intend to do and YOU can (and should) join us.

Episode 12: The Meaning of "Emergency"

4/1/2024
Send us a Text Message. The leaders in business and government worldwide have failed catastrophically to address the existential climate crisis in a meaningful way. They want things to stay as they are—even though this is impossible. They like the current situation because they are on top, they get their way. They are hoarding wealth and power. They have inflated egos to protect. But WE will protect the Earth and our children. We recognize the emergency and will address it—over the objections of the people who are nominally in charge.

Episode 11: Why the Powerful Climate Destroyers Are Vulnerable

3/25/2024
Send us a Text Message. Maybe the reason climate activists—and ordinary people who love their children and Nature—have not yet launched an effective movement is that the opponent is too strong. Wealthy businessmen and governments have huge resources at their disposal. Destroying the planet for wealth and power is a private-public partnership. What can ordinary people with no formal authority and limited resources do? As it turns out, the powerful are vulnerable and the so-called powerless people can win. Completely.

Episode 10: Guidelines For the Cllimate Emergency Team

3/18/2024
Send us a Text Message. The movement, The Saners, seeks to put together a team of climate scientists to develop (and then implement) a worldwide emergency program to prevent the collapse of the biosphere. We want our children to inherit a stable and habitable planet—even though it will be a damaged one. What will this team of scientists do? What are our instructions to them? How will this team and their plans—even their preliminary plan—help our movement to succeed? Please also check out the website WeAreSaners.org—which is the hub of our growing climate movement.

Episode 9: Somebody Has To Start Things

3/11/2024
Send us a Text Message. It's not great men, but ordinary people like you and me—people with no formal authority—who change the world. But somebody must start first, must break the ice, must clear the ground for others to join. This episode identifies three truths that will set you—and everyone—free.

Episode 8: How Saving the World Makes Each of Us Whole

3/4/2024
Send us a Text Message. The Saners Movement isn't something separate from your life. If you become a Saner, you must also become more fully yourself, especially your creative self. Being both a unique and creative human being, and a movement activist are compatible roles. In fact, they can be inseparable.

Episode 7: How I Live My Life

2/26/2024
Send us a Text Message. The world is in crisis but we must still live our lives day to day. The mundane and cataclysmic co-exist. And we suffer from anxiety from our ordinary obligations now complicated by a climate crisis. What should we do? How can we balance this? I share my personal approach which may or may not be useful to you. But it should at minimum stimulate some worthwhile thinking.

2/19/2024
Send us a Text Message. This is a script for fictional documentary about how things could be—if we sane and caring and allegedly powerless people—took control of events and worked to save the climate and human decency.

2/5/2024

Episode 2: A Creative, Playful Culture for Action

1/22/2024
Send us a Text Message. The Saners, our movement to save the climate and establish a human and sustainable worldwide civilization, is stalled—for the moment. We will get up and back on track, but we are taking this moment to reflect, to examine where we are, and to make any necessary changes that we need at this early stage. We need to build our community—online—so that we can unify as a movement, and work together effectively. We also need to establish our culture, ideally a playful yet active culture. We not only want to replace cruelty with kindness and greed with generosity and climate abuse with climate care. We want to replace a serious solemnity with an irrepressible and playful joy.

1/15/2024
Send us a Text Message. The activist group determined to protect the climate and create a humane, sustainable society, is offering a status report here.

Episode 12: How Just SIX People Can Start the Climate Rescue Revolution

1/8/2024
Send us a Text Message. 2024 will be a critical year, and the new climate group, The Saners, is gearing up for action. We will be like no other climate group that preceded us. We will use Gandhian tactics, EFFECTIVE tactics, to empower the people who care about our children, our species, other species and Nature Herself. But how can we begin with only a few hundred members? Here's a huge idea that requires ONLY SIX activists! Download this flyer HERE, and listen to this episode.

Episode 11: What You Will Lose

1/1/2024
Send us a Text Message. We don't act to save the climate for many reasons. One is that, in many ways, we like the way things they are. Or at least we are comfortable with the familiar. We don't want to lose what we have. And we don't us gaining much. Fighting climate change is all sacrifice—at least in our minds. But that's false. What we have or think we have is valueless. It's heroin, not fine dining. We can do better. Here's how and why. Yes, we lose things by saving the Earth—but what we gain is priceless.
