Don’t Look Up | a review

During my mindless Netflix flipping to decompress I took a chance with the new DiCaprio/Lawrence film ‘Don’t Look Up’. At surface level, it wasn’t that good, but after sleeping on it, the deeper messaging is quite profound – my suspicion is that this take home was the very intent, and actually mirrors the theme of…

Spaceship Earth | a review

I just recently returned from personally visiting the University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2 facility out in the middle of the desert. As a kid, I remember news headlines highlighting the 2 year social experiment that placed a team of ‘Biospherians’ inside the isolated ecosystem – it was really quite interesting to see where the project…

Portable Inflatable Habitats | some context from 2021

In June–July 1964, Ed Link – businessman, inventor, philanthropist – conducted his second Man-in-the-Sea experiment in the Berry Islands (a chain in the Bahamas) with Robert Sténuit and Jon Lindbergh, one of the sons of Charles Lindbergh. Sténuit and Lindbergh stayed in Link’s SPID habitat (Submersible, Portable, Inflatable Dwelling) for 49 hours underwater at a depth of 432 feet (132 m), breathing…

the bed & breakfast, or the bivy

Underwater living… it’s perhaps the start of the lineage of work that many of us have embarked upon, and still remains a vision for the future. “Why?” one might ask… While the Atlantean dreamscape painted of a life beneath the waves of some utopian tropical paradise flirts with the outskirts of fantasy, the practical side…

Closing the Loop on Climate Politics

Anyone tuning in to headlines over the past week has seen the alarms blazing about our ever narrowing window to thwart climate change… https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/07/world/climate-change-new-ipcc-report-wxc/index.html https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45859325 https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/kids-climate-change-lawsuit-can-proceed-judge-rules-n920476 Do we have problems? Absolutely yes. But the sad reality is that the media’s fear mongering is not the approach for environmental advocacy that we need. We should keep…

Top Ten Sunken Cities, for now…

I’ve written a fair bit about rising tides, seafaring states, and Atlantean futurisms here within this Blog over the years. The topic has become ever more relevant as we see the very real impacts of rising tides around the world. I’ll keep this one short. The following has been circulating around the digital universe recently,…

Before the Flood | a Review

Taking a short break from the intensity of Olympic curling, I thumbed through Netflix this weekend and was pleasantly surprised to find Leonardo DiCaprio’s documentary “Before the Flood”. I’ll be honest that I’ve often viewed celebrity backed cause documentaries with some question as to the motive, but DiCaprio proved me wrong with this one…well done.…

Advantage of the Undersea Vantage Point

It’s always a matter of perspective. One person’s half full glass is half empty for someone else, and so that is our yin and our yang. This push and pull, good and evil, happiness and sadness, positive and negative is what keeps our wheels turning and humanity evolving. The notion that we might achieve some…

Is Genesis History? | a Review

On the rare occasion that I get some tube time, I tend to shy away from the reality tv that seems to have plagued even the highest echelon of American society and culture and go for some real grit…typically along the lines of Ancient Aliens or the like. During tonight’s Netflix browsing session I stumbled…
