Honeybee Collapse is the Result of Their Enslavement in Industrial Monocultures
As you may have noticed, last week the media was once again filled with yet another round of collapsing honeybee stories, this time the coverage being about the loss of 42.1 percent of hives in the US over the past year, the second largest die-off on record. As has been the recurring case though, t…
Averting Climate Change Catastrophe is the New Fusion Energy
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Climate change is a gravely important issue, one that could have dire results. But according to a recent report by scientists we can still avoid its worst effects. The only catch is that this is our last chance to rectify things, and we’ve only got [fill i…
The Apex of Industrialism: Manufactured Fake Shit
The Dr. Pooper Papers, Issue #2: While it would be nice to think that in times before the industrial era that farming was a wholly benevolent practice, the truth of the matter is that similar to today, agriculture actually began with annual monocultures. Nonetheless, there did emerge over the mille…

So with part 1 in this series having explained how the Svalbard Global Seed Vault might be even less secure than what’s been recently conveyed by the popular press, and wi…
Don’t Go With the Flow, Go With the Wax: A Take on the Flow Hive

Movie Un-Review | Wendell Berry, the Not-Quite Rock Star Seer
Three years ago I had the pleasure to attend a talk between Wendell Berry and Wes Jackson at Cooper Union in New York City (my first time in New York City as an adult, which was a story in itself), moderated by New York Times columnist Mark Bittman. Wanting to quote a particular exchange between Ber…
Make America Poopable Again: The Great Toilet Debate That Wasn’t
The Dr. Pooper Papers, Issue #5: With the United States’ federal election on the horizon – a horizon that drags on for almost two years! – the media’s seemingly insatiable appetite for its catnip of political polarization seems to be ramping up like clockwork, with one of the latest and oh-so-ungrea…
How Sustainable Can Cities Be When They Can’t Even Deal With Their Own Shit?
The Dr. Pooper Papers, Issue #3: Just this past week the City of Toronto was informed by the Ministry of the Environment that it must now notify the public whenever water tr…
Is Democracy Hitting the Fossil Fuels too Hard?
Over the past few weeks the notion of democracy has been getting its fair share of attention in the media, and quite rightfully so; Greece had a referendum on whether or not it was going to accept new terms for another round of bailout funds in exchange for the prolongment of austerity measures and …
The Uber Disguise of Industrialism’s Collapse
If you’re a bit more up with the times that I am then you’re probably aware of Uber, the new taxi service that’s apparently been gaining an increasing foothold in major cities around the world. But predominantly being a user of my feet, bicycles and public transit, and not even having a smartphone u
