Would you like to star in a horror movie?
Here's the opening scene:
You're driving a bus with bad brakes
filled with hungry babies
down a poorly-paved road
that is getting steeper every minute...
...and the curve in the road just ahead
is too sharp to navigate,
no matter what you do.

Congratulations, you got the part!
In popular media,
the movie goes by two titles that
don't reveal the true horror in store for us:
"Global Warming" & "Climate Change."
These friendly titles don't convey the
descending on us in the coming century.
The title introduced by scientists does:
❊ Anthropocene Extinction ❊
Yup. Planet Earth's sixth mass
extinction is slowly getting underway
while we check Instagram and Twitter.

The concept of the "greenhouse effect" was
published in the scientific community
by Joseph Fourier way back
in 1824, but before Al Gore's documentary
"An Inconvenient Truth" was released
in 2006, most Americans were oblivious
to how big the effect industrialization
has had on our global environment.
As the discouraging movie
"Planet of the Humans"
points out, Al Gore isn't a saint and
his biomass "solutions" were a sham.
But these three points
should be crystal clear:
💣 The population explosion is deadly.
🌍 We needed better solutions a LONG time ago.
🛑 We have to STOP consuming so much NOW!
Even now, the "global warming" public dialog
is generally naïve, counterproductive,
& heavily influenced by the energy sector.
Our refusal to reduce carbon dioxide &
methane emissions (CO₂ & CH₄)
will continue to change our ecosystem
and accelerate the extinction of
millions of animal and plant species.

Please join me in taking action to
turn this situation around.
If you watch just the first 20 minutes
of a Netflix movie called "Chasing Coral"
you will better understand how URGENT
this man-made global ecosystem crisis is.

Classroom Aquatic virtual reality (VR) game

Once upon a time,

in a place far, far away called "Wisconsin,"
a young couple fell in love and married.

Doris & Jim met each other at a Friday night
"Marquette Mixer" on December 16, 1949.
Click to see the Dragon! :)

Mom sez, "...at this point [above], we weren't
even really serious about each other."
Dad sez, "I was serious." Somewhere down the road,
they both got serious & something clicked...NINE times.
When we were young
our parents moved a lot,
but we always found them.


Over 70 years later, Jim & Doris Goese
are still smiling and having fun together!
We're all alive and well, nobody's in jail (yet),
and we have each other's love.

Some people think you need to be "successful" to be happy.
The truth is this: You need to be happy to be successful.

Where did Dan get his supernatural powers?
Dan (#5) was part of a top-secret experiment
on toddlers in the late 1950s & early 60s
involving a proprietary mix of Comet cleanser
and Carnation Instant Nonfat Dry Milk...

“To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.” — Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel, La Jolla homeboy)

How shall we care for this amazing vessel that affords us life and comfort? Shall we fill the oceans with plastic? Shall we shower it with nuclear radiation? Shall we pump CO₂ and poisonous NO₂ into the air until it resembles the uninhabitable planets we're so anxious to explore? Let's not.

Regardless of our significance—or lack thereof—we must do our best to make our situation better for those around us and those who will follow in our footsteps. And it wouldn't hurt to take better care of our planet so our great grandchildren can enjoy a habitable outdoor environment.

There comes a time in your life when you just walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living. Every day is a blessing. Be thankful for the miracle of life for the short time you have to experience it. While you soar through space in this amazing place, take a deep breath. let go of your anxiety, and be perfectly still, loving & serene. That's something you can do for this world.

Are you now ready to spread peace, love & happiness?

Billions of people are comforted by religion in a world torn by religion.
Love and humanism are my religions. My god (my morning coffee & the opportunity to live another day, cognizant of the connections between us) helps me find more joy, serenity, and meaning in our universe than any story you can tell me about your invisible friend ever will. Based on what I learned growing up as a Catholic, the Catholic God is an inattentive, neglectful parent. His children are enablers when they claim he "works in mysterious ways" while he lets millions of young children suffer, starve & die. No offense. I'm just sharing my beliefs without trying to force them on you or make them integral to our government.

Just remember the golden rule & leave a positive emotional footprint.
Positive Emotional Footprint


"There are really just five simple lessons to life. Be honest, work hard, have fun, be grateful and pay it forward.”
— Bruce Halle, Discount Tire founder (1930-2018)

"I maintain there is much more wonder in science than in pseudoscience. And in addition, to whatever measure this term has any meaning, science has the additional virtue—and it is not an inconsiderable one—of being true."
— Carl Sagan
