The Ecology Ethic

Nature Our one shared living biosphere is collapsing and dying. Continued being depends urgently upon reconnecting with nature through global embrace of an ecology ethic whose individual affirmative outcomes for natural ecosystems are sufficient in sum to sustain the global environment. A primary ethical measure of a person is the degree to which their lifestyle positively or negatively impacts nature. “Ecology is the meaning of life. Truth, justice, equity, and sustainability are the ideals whereby ecology is maintained.” – Dr. Glen Barry “A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.” – Aldo Leopod, The Land Ethic

Absolute Radical Green Freedom

Big Brother is not your friend On the rise of high-tech global authoritarianism, as freedom and ecosystems fail, and Amerika falls into Russian and Chinese style tyranny “Nothing is so unworthy of a civilised nation as allowing itself to be governed without opposition by an irresponsible clique that has yielded to base instinct.” – The White Rose, Hitler Resistance Pamphlet “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot

Time of Great Dying: Population Bomb Bursts, the End of Old-Growth Forests, and the Great Awakening

Exponential human population growth can only end in collapse (courtesy of Population Matters) Gaia, the living biosphere, is infested with humans. Not just any humans, but the type that grow fat and reproduce exponentially by liquidating natural ecosystems. Having spent much of my life working to protect Earth’s last naturally evolved primary forests from logging for inequitable over-consumption, I am today ready to declare defeat. Preserving Earth’s last large old-growth forests is a lost cause as there are simply too many people. This Time of Great Dying is unlikely to end well unless a

Resisting Nazi Fascism and KKK Racism Responsibility of All True Americans

Anti-fascist liberal arts college professor brutalizes Nazi, who has a permit The tragic events at Charlottesville and UnPresident Trump’s embrace of Nazis and KKK members provides for a teachable moment on fascism and race. The rise of the American fascist and racist far right-wing, of the sort that festered and spread from the state of Wisconsin, threatens national and global well-

The Wretched State of the Human Family and Our Shared Ecological Habitat

Humanity’s one shared biosphere that makes Earth habitable is collapsing and dying as industrial growth overruns natural ecosystems and climate; as we have utterly failed to embrace our dependence upon each other and nature for our well-being and very survival. It is time to come together as one human family to resist injustice, inequity, violence, and non-sustainability as we create a rich and verdant life for all amidst resurgent natural ecosystems on a living Earth that can last essentially forever. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. – George Orwell We are

EcoInternet Earth Affinity Appeal

Permaculture forest gardens intermixed with regenerating old-growth forests key to stabilizing global carbon cycle Dear Earth loving colleagues, What a year 2016 has been for EcoInternet.

I Too Have a Dream: That Life on Earth Shall Not Perish, But Rather Thrive Forever

As a species we can do better if we believe in the human family, ourselves and Earth. There are alternatives to passively sitting by as climate abruptly changes, ecosystems collapse, and authoritarianism rises, destroying naturally evolved ecosystems and their life. A pathway exists to global ecological sustainability, yet it requires shared sacrifice and courage, and we may have to fight. What if we came together to pursue human advancement without destroying the biosphere and actively opposed those in our way? We choose ecocide and death by not choosing to stand for Earth and all life. A global revolution is coming that

Global Ecosystem Collapse

Old-Growth Forests Necessary to Avert Ecosystem Collapse The global environment is collapsing as human industrial growth overruns ecosystem habitats that make life possible. Either we choose now to embrace personal and societal changes necessary for global ecological sustainability, first and foremost stopping the destruction of ecosystems, or we face collapse and the end of being. The meaning of life is radical freedom, sustained

Ebola Is Ecosystem Collapse

Ebola Is Ecosystem Collapse The global environment is collapsing and dying under the weight of inequitable over-population and ecosystem loss. “We learn the meaning of enough and how to share or it is the end of being.� ― Dr. Glen Barry Deep ecology essay by Dr. Glen Barry, EcoInternet | MORE: Read about Love in the Time of Ebola | ACT to Demand More Doctors and Hospital Beds NOW | Ebola Newsfeeds from EcoInternet on Web, Twitter, and RSS The surging Ebola epidemic is the result of broad-based ecological and social collapse including rainforest loss, over-population, poverty and war.

VICTORY! Walker’s Proposed Wisconsin Great Lakes Mine Perched Above Lake Superior Defeated

EcoInternet help stop the Gogebic mine The project’s collapse is a major blow to Governor Scott Walker’s anti-science environmental policies. The only question remaining is whether the governor must now return the $700,000 bribe paid by the out-of-state developers for its approval.

We Are ALL Mauna Kea: A Sustainable Earth Depends Upon an Indigenist Future

We Are All Mauna Kea How would you feel if foreigners planned to steal your land to build an eighteen story, eight acre telescope on top your place of worship, burial sites, and water source?! The native re-awakening occurring now on Hawaii may be the single greatest hope for Earth, all her life and peoples. The #WeAreMaunaKea protectors teach

Europe’s Refugee Crisis: Mass Migration is Biosphere Collapse

Mass migration is biosphere collapse Refugees and economic migrants currently flowing into Europe and elsewhere globally are the direct result of over-population, ecosystem collapse, climate change, militarism and inequity. Mass migration has the potential to overrun entire societies and human civilization, and even threatens to collapse the biosphere. Migration must be controlled; and refugees and economic migrants assisted to return to productive, sustainable uses of land as close as possible to their place of origin. “Crucially, small families, sustainable lifestyles, peace-making, and greater equity must be stressed globally… But for the grace of Gaia, anyone of us could become a migrant at any time.” – Dr. Glen Barry First and foremost the mass exodus of refugees

For Paris, Make Love Not War, Remain Free and Be Green

Make Love Not War Be strong and reflect. Islamo-Fascism will not be defeated by Christo-Fascism or a state of perma-war. In the 21st century it is time to reject endless military escalation of the Middle East crisis and understand and respond to the root causes of conflict. Even as we commit to bringing all perpetrators of mass murder to justice, we must be brave and not give up our liberties or commit further war crimes. The West must respond to the rage of societies we have senselessly bombed for decades, yet not committed to

Stop Being Afraid, Work Together to Make Things Better

Things could be so much better Things could be so much better, if we want them to be. There are tremendous benefits to be realized by coming together to make peace, promote equity and justice, protect natural ecosystems, and end fossil fuels. But it requires us to reject religious fanaticism, think freely and generously, help the poor to live upon the land, demobilize standing armies, stop

Embrace the Coming Ecological Inflection Point and Great Transition

Earth is dying Environmental awareness must soon reach a critical mass, whereby massive societal resources are re-allocated to scale up solutions in a great ecological transition; before biosphere, social, and economic collapse become unavoidable. An approaching ecological inflection point reflects a narrow band of opportunity to repair fragmented, quivering nature, clearly at its breaking point, before it is too late. “Only by leaving

On Ecology and Going Back to the Land

Grow your own food as you restore ecology Life begets life, making Earth livable. — Dr. Glen Barry Not much new land is being made, yet land’s health is central to the well-being of human and all life. On land, in a miraculous act of biological emergence, plants and animals have naturally evolved and self-organized to form ecosystems and ultimately the biosphere. Existing land and its ecology have been treated incautiously and with great malice for centuries. Land ensconced in natural vegetation is the living membrane that encompasses Earth and mediates energy and material flows between air, water, and soil. Naturally evolved

The Pernicious Myth of Perpetual Economic Growth

Economic growth is destroying the biosphere Nothing grows forever. The myth the economy can is destroying the biosphere. By Dr. Glen Barry The present human condition is predicated on one of the biggest lies ever – that the economy can grow indefinitely. In a self-serving logical contortion, economists in service to the oligarchy measure the well-being of a society by how fast the economy grows, with little

How Much Is Enough

Live more simply so others may simply live To sustain a livable environment, all basic human needs must be met as sufficient steady state stocks of natural capital are maintained. Guaranteeing a basic income as the greed of the billionaire class is tamed are keys to avoiding biosphere collapse and the end of being. Conspicuous over-consumption by some as others fester in abject poverty is killing us all as
