My current projects and campaigns
Project Save the World
The human population faces significant risks from at least six current sources: wars and weapons (especially nuclear); global warming; famine; pandemics, massive radiation exposure, and cyberattacks. They are so inter-dependent that none of them can be solved without addressing one or more of the others, yet there are known ways of reducing all these risks. Go to tosavetheworld.ca for full information, and to join the campaign.
Please see my video archive for short (5-35 minute) reflections on personal and global history, from 1931 to the present.
