July 1 - Rob Larson - Fossil Fuelishness

rob Larson

Historian Barbara Tuchman once wrote the, "rejection of reason is the prime characteristic of folly." The lack of urgency in addressing the eco-crisis is an example of that. Heat waves in India, floods in Texas, drought in California, melting polar ice caps, rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere and so much more, are still presented as unconnected dots. Climate summits come and go resulting in little more than lofty announcements. With an abundance of solar and wind energy at our fingertips it's stunning and reckless that fossil fuelishness continues. As a sign said in Seattle protesting a huge Shell rig heading for drilling in the Artic, "Good Planets are Hard to Find.”

Rob Larson teaches economics at Tacoma Community College. He is the author of Bleakonomics. His articles appear in Dollars and Sense.

    Berkeley City Council Votes in Favor of Regulating Short Term Rentals

    San Francisco-based, Airbnb, a multi-billion dollar international travel company that enables community residents to host travelers in their home for payment, is one step closer to being a legitimate business practice in the City of Berkeley. The city council unanimously voted to push forward short-term rental guidelines through the proper regulatory channels. The guidelines specify planning and housing conditions that were otherwise non-existent, making it unlawful for residents to operate short-term housing. The city’s escalating housing crisis was cited by supporters as a reason to regulate Airbnb activities, whereas others criticized the council for forming unnecessary legislation. Pacifica’s Saadia Malik reports.
