Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

No U.S. category 3 hurricanes for more than a decade

I’m glad the science is settled! Despite predictions more than a decade ago that the world was faced with increased extreme weather due to human-caused global warming, including more hurricanes that were more powerful, the United States has now set a record for the longest stretch ever recorded, 129 months, without a single major hurricane.

    The propaganda is so bad, they now name winter snow storms! When every third news story has a Mention of global warming, you have to wonder why, gratuitous use just makes me think something’s up, and it’s not climate or weather.

    ” When every third news story has a Mention of global warming”

    I’ve noticed the same thing. Seems like so many things I read blame whatever it is on “Climate Change”.

    I’m not buying it either.

    Since there’s been no global warming since 1998,this is no surprise. CO2 in itself does not melt ice. It greens the world. Human CO2 emissions have thus far only had good effects. More wild life everywhere. More food produced per acre so that actually less areal is used for farming, to feed the growing richer human kind.

    All those who bought stuff because it was “climate smart” actually murdered wild life. The more they reduced their “carbon foot print”, the more wild life did they murder. They didn’t want to kill those wilds animals and burn down their habitat. They were just stupid enough to let themselves be fooled by the corrupt politicians to do it anyway. Brainlessly believing it was good.

    We should introduce a retroactive fine on everyone who has participated in killing wild life by trying to stop our life giving emissions of CO2. They have accumulated a debt of death to the entire world.
