Renewable Energy Pays If We Count More than Cash

Solar energy could power all energy needs on earth x 11,000 (ETOM, 2013)....Wind energy could power all energy needs on earth numerous times. Water and waves could also power all energy needs on earth. Geothermal, harvesting waste heat, energy efficiency and conservation as a plentiful fuel equivalent, biofuels, gravity, imagination. So why are we still addicted to a cash-driven dirty dead energy of dead dinosaurs?

Message to the Black Man (Part I): The Great Debaters

On October 26, 2015, I wrote an op-ed entitled “Message to the White Man: Why I Just Can’t Get Over Slavery”. The piece received a lot of attention and elicited considerable controversy. http://www.thomhartmann.com/users/r-kenyatta/blog/2015/10/message-white-man-why-i-just-can%E2%80%99t-%E2%80%9Cget-over%E2%80%9D-slavery

New book;Cancer in American Democracy

Check out my new book "Cancer in American Democracy. The website is curingdemocracy.com

Very topical in today's presidential politics. The cancer is money in politcs and its' corrosive effect on evry aspects of our lives. It not only shows problems but also solutions.

Frederick Parker

Who cares if the "Party" survives? Bernie WILL win.

I am not thinking about casting my vote i the interests of keeping this pathetic, wounded, deluded Democratic Party alive.
