Conclusion...iacta alea est...

Save the Earth is the consummate human vanity.

It was a nice buzzphrase, got awareness levels up, and served to awaken enough individuals that the Climate Crisis is no longer considered a joke.

The phrase has outlived its usefulness. It is now an encumbrance.

Until we get over the idea of Saving the Earth, and realize that the only thing Earth needs saving from is us, we remain pawns in our own intellectual wanking...victims of Ecobabbleism, if you will.

All we can hope to do is take the lessons we have learned, moderate our behavior...sufficiently enough to allow natural healing to thrive...and adapt to the changes we have wrought...the sooner, the better.

It took nearly half a milennium to get Save the Earth, from Hippie gibberish to mainstream.

We do not have that long to get over it.

Besides, if King Petro Chem is actually overthrown, those images we've all seen from Mogadishu, and other strife ridden areas of the Globe, will seem like safe haven. Don't kid yourselves. We're in this for the long pull.

This Blog is titled 'Sea Change' for a reason.

Don't forget, the toughest thing for most humans to do, is consider the future. We barely have a present, it flies by so fast.

The future...whewwww!!!

Stay tuned...there's much more, still to the future.

If this proves cause for reflection, you'll enjoy the following material.
Reading it has brought me to the above conclusion.
See what it does for you...

It's time for Yours Truly to move forward.
C'mon won't be dull...

there's a sea change a comin'
comin' for us all
we're bound to get swept up in it
all ridin' on this ball

since what you see, is what you get
learn to see it all...

Fadda his own words...

All this sudden hand-wringing over the Climate Crisis is preposterous.
It didn't start the day Al Gore's movie went big.
All but the oldest living humans have been aware of the probable consequences of Atmospheric Pollution for most of their lives.
Fifty years ago, when overconsumption of petroleum products began in earnest, voices proclaiming the dangers were squelched in the name of progress...but, they were there.
The Cultural Revolution of the '60's brought our awareness level to a point where it can only be concluded that most of us preferred to ignore the warnings.
No-one can claim they were never heard.

These generalities apply only to humans whose lives are taking place in modern, industrialized nations...contributing to the problem...
Those whose lives remain primitive, have little effect on the issue at hand.
The fact that they are out of the loop means little...except, consequentially, to them...but, there's nothing they can do...
They're not going to see this.
It's aimed at those of us who are...

I think the deepest depth of blame lies with a very specific group.
No, not megalomaniacal Oil Barons/Sheiks, nor their viscious minions...the blame lies with those of the age who, faced with controversial decisions, chose to ignore the threat, basically repeat their parents lives...with better toys...and dummy up, now that it's time to pay the piper.

Yes, I'm talking to know who you are...
Dare I call you 'The Silent Majority'?
I bet none of you think of yourself that way,'s who you've did said nothing, except maybe throw a few verbal jabs at the wackos who were speaking up...and ninety percent of everything you purchase today is made with petroleum products...
Except, of course, food...which comes to you compliments of King Petro Chem...fertilizers, fuel, and packaging...all petroleum products...
Now, even if you suddenly wake up, and just flat out stop using carbon based fuels, you still can't stop the train wreck...
Without a use for petro fuels, there will be no petroleum products...plastic is made from Petro Chemical least it was waste before you started helping out King Petro Chem by buying it...

This scenario leads to Global Economic chaos, all out war in the streets, and generally, not a pretty picture.

Plus, all the harm done is for naught.
Whadda ya got ta show for it?...a vehicle that cost more than a house did a few years ago, and gets around about as cheaply as house moving...a garage full of expensive plastic know...

It's become fashionable to have a personal balance sheet.
I bet a lot of you show a net worth somewhere near that 1950's magic million dollar mark.

Go try to collect.
You have a marker...valid only in this game...the only game in town...
Even if you could cash in, you'll be broke before you die...unless your insurance fails, and some everyday ( non-life threatening with insurance ) event brings you to ground early...

The next morning...

Does it bother you that our two leading Enviro Mentalists, Branson and Gore, believe that we are still about Saving the Earth, and doing so via Moral Authority?

Branson's Ecosite waxes poetic about Save the Earth, and a flowery future, but still proposes a technological solution. His intentions seem good, but he's a gadget freak.

Here's an idea...keep Virgin flying, but drag some sort of filtering device behind the aircraft...or, seed the exhaust with a chemical that neutralizes carbon-dioxide buildup, and turns it into a natural fertilizing agent, which falls with the rain...something clever...that's what Sir Richard wants...and, he hasn't yet realized that it's about saving our niche upon Earth.

Mudda Eart don't need us...and it is the ultimate vanity to believe we have any hand in saving her...from what?


I heard Algore say that we would solve the problem of emerging industrial giants...China, for example...and their certain contribution to the Climate Crisis, by exerting our Moral Authority.

Algore's never done anything that interests me, so I know little...except that he's married to Tipper, believes we will succeed via Moral Authority, and his father was a stereotypical influence peddler, who epitomized smarm.

That's more than enough for me.

to be continued...

BLAME...guest post from Fadda Eart

There always has to be a scapegoat, or we have nowhere to direct our anger...

Maybe that's the answer...I blame us.

And I guarantee...I'm pissed-off at us enough for, don't waste your time on blame...I got it covered...

Good, now we can start solving the problem...

For starters...this adherence to the lessons of History thing is complicating the problem.
History was yesterday.
There are no relevant lessons from our past, which apply to the Climate Crisis...other than the everpresentness of 'might makes right'.
We are at an evolutionary crossroads.
Our next move is a done deal.
Something has to give.
The wheels are so fully in motion that this Climate Crisis has taken over from Terrorism as Fear #1.
For an impending possibility to garner so much attention, it must have some basis in reality.
Whether that reality is happening all on its own, or is the result of despicable men, with no concern for anything but them, and theirs, does not matter.
What matters is that we've collectively taken note of the problem.
That's big.

Can collective consciousness overcome evolution?...does it really need to?

In days of yore...History, if you will...those at the top of the heap, making all the big decisions, creating the problems that are our future, didn't have access to as much intelligence as I do, sitting here before this screen, today.
Yes, it's all their fault...they did us into this mess...
But, they didn't know any better.
Get over it!
We do know better.

...don't get excited...I'm not making any ridiculous claims...yet...

The format presents the newest stuff first.
This makes it necessary to refresh the purpose in each post.
Otherwise, it's all mumbo-jumbo...just like all the rest of the gibberish surrounding Ecobabbleism...which, by way of refreshment, is exactly what we're trying to avoid here.

For example...if this is your first visit...what the?...doesn't make much sense, does it?

My Son tells me savvy readers know that's how Blogs go, and anyone interested will scroll down, look to the left, and...if it looks cool, continue on, and check things out.

That's good, but, if this is going to have the desired effect, I can't start off by putting demands on the reader.

There's enough www to lure anyone's attention away in milliseconds.

I would never even get this far, without a previous purpose, or the promise of celebrity skin.

So, today's project attention getting problem...piece of cake...

6:00 AM Sunday...2/18/007...the quest for answers...

My first thought is...7:35 AM...

Mobilize Post WWII Baby Boomers to boycott all products using Dennis Hopper as their spokesperson.

This includes ads he's done in the past.

The Bozos in the Ad Biz utilize Hopper's smarmy smirk to generate a sense of identifier with the Bad Boys of the Boomer Generation.

Smokin' his stogie, cruisin' in a Lincoln, surrounded by the Bikers from Hell, he leers into the lens, and says, "Only in America."

That's from a few years ago.

But, the image of rebellion, gone to seed, never to blossom, settled smugly into a traveling Barcalounger, oozes from ol' Dennis' every creepy pore, in ads targeted toward us on a regular basis.

I think he's the spokesperson for some 'We're still Groovy after all these years' product right now.

It tells us what those in the Ad Biz think of us.

Hopper's tone represents smart-assed dopers, laughing at everything but theirself, with a lay back and giggle at 'em for tryin' outlook.

That's what Boomers the minds of the Ad Biz Bozos...are they right?

It ain't all four hour boners, and endless sunsets, Boys...time to suck it up, and deliver on some of that unfulfilled promise...

This suggestion is probably terroristic, or seditious, so actually boycotting anything is risky biznis. Hopper shills for major players. Messing with their bottom line would harm the economy.

The point is...

If I'm getting the point across, there should be nothing left to say.

I'm suggesting that by picking on some poor sap from a TV ad, we can change our outlook.

That can't be right, can it?

new word...

pretty nifty...

This Blog is powered by Google.
I've barely scratched the surface of what's offered here...FREE...and already, Google has provided me an invaluable service.
My first post is dated 1/20/007.
In less than one month, SmythSpace has coined a new word.
search for ecobabbleism...
When's the last time you saw a Google listing with only single digit search pages available?
The first time ecobabbleism appears in the lexicon, it is associated with this Blog.
Ecobabbleism, my word for the foolishness surrounding the Climate Crisis, has been projected into the flow.
That is Wicked, Pissa, Awesome...
Thanks, Google!
Now, it's my job to make it the standard...the straight stuff...

RAWBABBLE...access to tools...opposable thumbs...

When this book first became popular, it sat around, in obvious plain sight, in homes everywhere.
It was...'an essential coffee table book'...promoted as a decorative accessory to the chicly hip, or hiply chic...take your pick...
Folks were way too cool to admit it, but the image of Earth, and the implication that, by displaying it you were groovy, sold the book.
It became almost like every word, in case you're questioned...very few people cared about access to tools...that's what Hardware Stores were for...people learned stuff from this book by default...a lot of what they learned could prove valuable today...
It's just that the promise fizzled, and it became a cliche' everything else turned loose in USofA.
That's what we do...distill everything to its most common denominator.

It means that everyone gets a dose.
It may be ridiculously diluted Kool-Aid, tainted with who knows what, but there's some for everyone.

One good indicator of where a person stands today would be if they still have their 1968 copy.
I'll be the judge of whether it's really their copy, or yard sale/ebay memorabilia.
They'll only take a split second to tell.
The book contains subliminal messages that show on a person's face.
I bet those, whose copies are genuinely theirs, have something to offer...if we can wake 'em from their long slumber...and send them forth into the Rip Van Winkle Warriors.

Man, are they gonna be shocked...watching them awaken should be interesting...
end fits in here somewhere...

Thursday, February 15, 2007's the skinny...

It all started long ago, when nature seemed a merciless, unrelenting foe.

Our surroundings were bigger, and far more powerful than us.

Where would thoughts of ever using it all up come from?

As we learn the lessons of our History, we often become stuck at certain phases, repeating History, in some form of ancestral tribute, instead of taking the lesson learned, and moving ahead.

We still talk about Man v. Nature...Man's Dominion over Nature.

It's a losing battle...we are nature...

Until we acknowledge, accept, realize, and act upon our naturalness...our part in the natural course of events...we may as well use up all the Petro Chem as fast as humanly possible, adapt accordingly, and get on about our business.

The current Climate Crisis will serve to establish options for the time when Petro Chem is gone.

Forward thinking, tech-headed individuals will come up with a workable solution.

Maybe rain can be distilled into carbon fuel...that sort of thing...

Some form of Homo Technus will survive.

By the time all this occurs, survivors will be well adapted to conditions of the day, and be perfectly content with their lot in life.

Homo Sapiens time will have passed.

History will remember us as powerfully doltish.

We strove, pushed, and struggled...constantly at war with ourselves, never grasping the obvious.

Oh, we go, Kids...hang onto your hats...

That's pretty close to exactly what's going to happen.

If humans had seen this a century ago,
we wouldn't be in this mess.
But, it didn't happen,
and we are.
Forge Ahead!

RAWBABBLE...affection for nature...
above is a link to the first post...reading it will help set the stage...

RAWBABBLE will appear periodically, in this space.

This all started because nature was the enemy.

Germs, predators, natural disasters...whew...that's some scary stuff.
Especially before 24/7 monitoring of every event on the globe.
When Krakatoa blew, that was Armageddon...none of those who died got to phone family and friends, at the final moment...there was no awareness of anything outside of themselves, and their surroundings...except the vastness of the ocean, and the sky...the Earth shook, the Heavens darkened, and existence ended...period...badda-boom...
As recently as the 1800's, cataclysmic events in USofA's Midwest, were the end of the world, as far as survivors knew.
There was no way of knowing that the entire planet wasn't heaving, rupturing, and flooding.
Those survivors, and the tales they spread, contributed greatly to the wide eyed, religiofervent look on the faces of many a Midwesterner.

Point accident of birth, we're here, right now, today, generating the Climate Crisis...all in the same the same time.
This device can contribute enormously.
We all have access to the same information...really...a single piece of important information can reach every single individual whose lifestyle affects the Climate Crisis, in the time it takes for that individual to get online.
Keep in mind that folks without access to this device, probably aren't contributing much in the way of carbon emissions.
So, if they are out of the loop, it means zero to the solution.

Even though we're all onboard, facing a common problem, this is a pretty big boat, and we're not driving.
There's no Captain.
No-one can be everywhere, at once.
This ubiquitous gadget can be.

In the course of a single day, every human whose behavior affects the Climate Crisis, can access, process, comment on, and make decisions based upon the exact same information.

That's the first time ever, for that.

If we're serious, and we can't use this thing to come up with a consensus-like outlook, we're.....

The dots represent us...trailing off...into the sunset...

I just realized that the internet is a natural occurrence, part of the natural course of events.
We invented it, and rushed it to ubiquitousness, because we need it...NOW!...
As things reach the breaking point, up pops the solution.
Our survival instinct remains strong.
That's pretty friggin' cool, if you ask me.
We're smarter than we act, sometimes.
Or...even better...lucky!

ECOBABBLEISM is on the move...don't miss the Older Posts below, and to your left, under SO'll set the stage before moving on to...
fresher babble...
freshest babble...

Tuesday, February 6, 2007


I have good news. It's nobody's fault. Get over it. Forge ahead.

Here comes ecobabble...

With guys like Richard Branson, Algore, and Ted Turner on the case, we should have nothing to worry about, eh?
The Rebel Billionaire, Lurch the Internet Inventor, and The Mouth of the South save the planet.
I don't know about you, but I feel better.

I predict blue skys, green grass, clean oceans and birds chirping all around...coming a planet near you...send compost now...things should be ready in a few million years...buckle up, here we go...

Before these guys turn their outlooks into gospel, I'd like to go on the record.
They represent The Guilty Party.
Branson admits he got involved out of guilt. I heard him say so on The Weather Channel.
Turner's been doing some bizarre penance ever since he married Janey.
As far as Lurch goes...that's some wacky dude...can you say, agenda?

Guilt ridden, agenda driven, Johnny Come Latelys with access to the media...great...

Here's how it looks objectively...guilt free...

As time passes, and the level of interest rises, so will the confusion over which way is best. Special interest groups, and profiteers will see to that. Confusion to the Enemy is a tried and true method.
No matter where you choose to stand on the issue, you're someone's give it your full attention...don't allow confusion to reign...

With this in mind...a few simple a point of reference...

We cannot destroy the planet.
We can only destroy our niche on the planet.
The symbiosis is out of whack.
Recognize this.
We're the ones on the take. We have to make the effort.

Simply put...
Don't delude yourself about Saving the Earth.
This is about saving us.

Earth does not care.
If she did, she'd probably figger, "Hmmm. I was better off before they got here. Things were calming down."

Human Generated Global Warming can only be dealt with by ceasing the use of fossil fuels.
This is within the realm of possibility, if we're serious.
While considering this, realize that the most populous, most rapidly developing nations on the planet are early Industrial Age in much of their development. Fossil fuels are the fuel of the Industrial Age. What are they going to do?

We'll have to adopt a true Humanitywide Global Outlook, realize that we are fighting for survival, and accept, what, in today's world, will seem like serious hardships...starting now...

Otherwise, we start adapting to climate change, dwindling population, and greatly diminished personal freedom, as we battle over the ever scarcer supply...of just about everything...

It's as simple as that.

Change...or humans will be at war over diminishing resources until the end of can take that to the bank...

Wasting decades reacting, responding, studying, conferencing, and trying to undo the past is foolish.
It's always been our way. It too must change. It's a luxury we can no longer afford.

Studies showing thirty years to serious consequences are flapdoodle.
If you believe that our actions brought about these potentially serious consequences, you know that they're serious right now.

What's done, is done, and cannot be undone. Take what we've learned. Acknowledge that there are tough decisions.

Change, or not.
Just don't get stuck nowhere.
Make the tough decisons. This is no time for fence sitting.

Also, don't forget that the Environmental Movement did not start last week.
Solutions, though costly, exist...thanks to the efforts of these folks...

Take what these New Ecobabbleistas pitch with a grain of salt.
They'll have to get all their most valuable information from people they've historically put down as granola eatin', tree huggin', unwashed, etc...the spin should be fascinating...the art of compromise...strange bedfellows, and all that...

Ecobabble is also a great diversion to terrorism...we'll all feel better trying to stop Global Warming...after all, we can't do anything about terrorism, except fret...get our minds on something new...

more to follow...

Sunday, February 4, 2007


Get over Man v. Nature. It's a no-win situation.
We are nature.

Everything we have ever done, everything we will ever do, is part of the natural course of events.
Don't waste time on a reactionary, guilt driven crusade to undo our mistakes.
Take stock. We know what's good for us.
Change demand, and supply will follow.
That's the natural course of events.

We are on a reckless course, which will determine the future of Humanity.

Not of the USofA, or Islamic Fundamentalism, nor any other ology, or ism.


There's no time for review.
Change for the better.
It's in us all...somewhere...

If you need an ology, or an ism, to get started...
apply some kineticism to the problem...a little soul salve never hurt...

check it'll feel better when you return...

Al Gore...Nobel Peace Prize...

This morning's first perusal of the www brought news of Al Gore's consideration for the Nobel Peace Prize.
It made me think of a post below.
My associate, Art Dif, Billionaire Enviro Mentalist, guest hosted that day.
Here's what Art had to say about ol' Al...Wed...1.27.'007
...Al Gore, one of the leading voices of our environmental conscience, claims we will get the rest of the world to follow in our newly developing Environmentalist Nation footsteps through 'Moral Authority'.
We, in our greater wisdom, will set a shining example for the rest of the world to follow.
Nations all over the globe will alter their ways, in emulation of our 'Morally Authorized' lead.
Cripes! That ol' boy is flat out stupid.
Nobody has looked to USofA for any 'higher outlook', since guys like Al's Dad ran the show.
They pretty much dumped Pandora's Box all over the place, and left the mess for us to clean up.
Yet, this bozo, son of an influence peddler, who, more, and more, resembles a lurching undertaker, came a few crooked votes from being the President, and gets huge attention for whatever issue enters his gourd.
I think he's a crazed lunatic with a forum...
Art goes on after can click the post entitled Enviro Mental...for more...the link is under 'SO FAR'...just to your left on this page...

On the other hand, Al's married to Tipper.
I guess he deserves something for that.
