I keep hearing the same simple narrative about why a Trump president is good for the economy. It goes like this. Trump will open up oil exploration by cutting regulations. He will let us to drill, frack, and dig where we please to get the economy going again. He will approve the Keystone pipeline, yada yada. Wrong answer. […]

The planet Pluto was “demoted” nearly six years ago to “dwarf planet 134340 Pluto”, and quite frankly it still rankles The Bear that we no longer have a planet “Pluto” anywhere in our solar system. Look at that meteor-scarred globe; it’s only about 1/3 the size of our own moon, but check out how solid […]

In the ongoing effort to reduce his environmental impact on the planet, The Bear this week has installed a “TED-5002” on the home electrical panel. Other weblogs have described the T.E.D. installation process, so I won’t go into that here.

Oil Rig Burning It is the worst man-made ecological disaster since the Exxon Valdez Alaskan oil spill of 1989. When British Petroleum’s Deepwater Horizon oil platform ignited, burned, and sank, it left in its fiery wake an uncontrollable gusher of crude oil beneath the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
