Please consider supporting my work here at Behind the Black. I keep the website clean from pop-ups and annoying demands. Instead, I depend entirely on my readers to support me. Though this means I am sacrificing some income, it also means that I remain entirely independent from outside pressure. By depending solely on donations and subscriptions from my readers, no one can threaten me with censorship. You don't like what I write, you can simply go elsewhere.


You can support me either by giving a one-time contribution or a regular subscription. There are five ways of doing so:


1. Zelle: This is the only internet method that charges no fees. All you have to do is use the Zelle link at your internet bank and give my name and email address (zimmerman at nasw dot org). What you donate is what I get.


2. Patreon: Go to my website there and pick one of five monthly subscription amounts, or by making a one-time donation.

3. A Paypal Donation:

4. A Paypal subscription:

5. Donate by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman and mailed to

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage or shown in the menu above. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

Guess what debate is over and for what reason. Link here.

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit. If you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News

    Debates? Fascist don’t debate. Facts are not relevant when you’re debating with a loaded gun. Whether it be Executive Order / IRS / fathwah it doesn’t matter, whoever has the biggest gun wins. How else can they say over and over again that the debate is over? Obviously we have not got the message so now the talk is of penalizing global warming deniers. Yes, the thought police are starting to arise! I hope they don’t excommunicate me, that would be terrible…
    At the worst, they would deny me my carbon tax exemption make me pay full price. Not just for hydrocarbons, carbohydrates are carbon as well.
    Cap and trade does not just apply to Manufacturing, Theoretically if you do not pay for your carbon offset, they can stop your carbon dioxide release!
    That may seem crazy, or extreme. So let’s do a side-by-side comparison:
    How many people have died due to carbon dioxide or sea level rise In the last century. Now how many tens of millions have died just because their government wanted to get rid of useless eaters? You human nature deniers are doomed to repeat history.
    As for Arctic ice, Ice Age is said to have ended 16,000 years ago. The original buildings erected at the South Pole 60 years ago are buried 60 feet under the surface. That’s an average of 12 inches of new ice a year. Is it just a coincidence that 3 miles of ice is nearly 16,000 feet thick?
