I am a deconstructeur of modern environmentalism and its destructive regulatory aftermath. I am fully committed to popularizing the post-scarcity mindset and laying the ideological foundation for an abundance economy.

The Fault Line That Will Divide Environmentalism Asunder

Apoptosis is a biological term that refers to the death of cells that occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism’s growth or development. Destruction is a process that is hard-coded into life. In something of a paradox, destruction and life are inextricably intertwined. Life contains, and in fact only exists in the first place, because of destruction. …

The Hollywood Fire

Phil and Sandy crouch behind the underbrush that grows heavily beneath the canopy of the remains of a conifer forest in the highlands of Dixie National Forest.  To the West, the exposed coral cliffs of Cedar Breaks National Monument drop suddenly and expose a vast chasm.  To the East, the Grand Escalante Staircase National Monument makes its gradual terraced descent …

FDA Shuts Down 23andMe

The FDA is shutting down personal genomics company, 23andMe.  23andMe is an innovator in the personal genomics industry, who is known for selling personalized genetic analyses for $99.  The FDA claims that the potential that they could release inaccurate information about your DNA creates a public health risk, ergo the company must cease to operate. It is worth taking a …

Genesis Solar Energy Project AKA Avian Death Trap

Modern environmentalism has become like a nihilistic autoimmune disease.  Typically an autoimmune disease is characterized by the body’s immune system attacking otherwise benign, healthy, and vital parts of the body instead of pathogens.  Modern environmentalists portray themselves as if they are removing environmental pathogens and toxins from the environment. It is for this reason that the following two stories are …

How Markets Will Resurrect Endangered Species

We recently published a post on scientists that are bringing the gastric brooding frog back from extinction.  As genetic engineers move closer to bringing this species back, we had this to say: While this frog is most notorious for its odd reproductive habits, perhaps it is fitting that the next specimen will emerge not from its parents mouth, but from …

Things Fall Apart; The Centre Cannot Hold

In the wake of President Obama’s climate speech this week, numerous media outlets shifted into full throttle to remind us of the calamities we face based on what the’ve seen from peering into their computer-modeled future.  Stacy Small-Lorenz, from the Environmental Defense Fund, was quick to remind us that aside from causing every single natural disaster that has occurred recently …

The Coming Biodiversity Explosion

I recently read a story that recent studies have indicated that bee venom could be used to fight HIV.  If these findings ultimately lead to a cure of HIV, this would alleviate a lot of pain and suffering for those who have been infected by this ruthless virus. Aside from the obvious public health benefits that could result from these …

A Tale of Two Cities: Boise vs. Boston

Measuring the economic impact of federally owned land can be done in a variety of ways, but any analysis will likely end up being reductive.  The primary reason is because such an analysis can only measure what is known about past allocation of resources and compare them to present allocations.  This typically involves enthusiasts for oil, gas, and mineral extraction …

The Great Comeback of the Gastric Brooding Frog

From inception, the Post Scarcity Alliance has recognized that genetic engineering will play an increasingly vital role in preserving endangered species and ultimately causing an explosion of biodiversity.  There have been several stories over the last few weeks about recent developments in genetic engineering of extinct species. Here is a sampling of some of these articles: Reviving the Wooly Mammoth …
