Below are my recent opinion pieces that often focus on achieving energy independence, mitigating climate change, and protecting our natural resources.
Into the Heart of Darkness
December 21, 2017
If Congress does not repeal the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force, the four American combat advisors killed in Niger will not be the only American casualties in sub-Saharan Africa due to our materialistic culture's need for raw materials.

End the Afghanistan War
November 11, 2017
It is time for our elected officials to admit to themselves that Afghanistan's tribal culture will not change, be truthful with the American public on the actual impact our counterproductive military operations are having, and bring our service members home.

Renew the American Spirit
July 04, 2017
Our abundant natural resources, fertile soils, and favorable climates in combination with our democratic institutions and two ocean buffers allowed America to become great.

Honey Matters
May 19, 2017
A third of modern agriculture's food supply would not exist if the honey bee goes extinct like many of Mother Nature's other ghosts.

A Minimum Deterrent Earth Day Strategy
April 19, 2017
America should adopt a minimum deterrent strategy before our current nuclear weapon arsenal causes the Doomsday Clock to strike midnight.

Legalize Marijuana
February 27, 2017
Legalizing marijuana would make life more enjoyable, lessen the profit big pharmaceutical companies make off the opioid crisis, and reduce the imprisonment of so many nonviolent offenders.

NASA's Needed Mars Mission
January 06, 2017
Discovering if life exists on Mars, Jupiter's Europa, or Saturn's Titan would be humankind's most momentous event since Copernicus' heliocentric model.

UNH Should Divest
November 09, 2016
The University of New Hampshire should divest its endowment from the carbon industry to help reshape our extraction culture, protect its endowment from stranded assets, and prevent the need for any ill-fated geoengineering attempts.

The Earth in the Balance
October 13, 2016
Our greatest fears of a 3 ½ to 7-degree Celsius temperature increase should not be for those displaced by severe droughts, extreme precipitation events, or the forecasted sea level rise, but for the endangerment of the very diversity of our oceans, forests, and food supply.

Carbon Fee and Dividend
September 08, 2016
Economists widely agree that America's Paris Agreement pledge to reduce carbon dioxide emissions eighty percent from 2005 levels by 2050 can only be achieved by a price or tax on carbon dioxide.

We Need a New Authorization to Use Military Force
August 10, 2016
Congress' failure to authorize our large, all-volunteer, standing military to combat the Islamic State goes against the Constitution's system of checks and balances.

Eat Local
June 30, 2016
Eating well grown, locally sourced, and more nutritional foods would be healthier for the planet with less oil being consumed, fewer American service members fighting wars in oil abundant regions, and climate change being less grim.

Reducing America's Oil Dependence Will Reduce War
May 21, 2016
Almost every major conflict the United States military has been engaged in for the past twenty five years stems from protecting our oil dependent lifestyle that paradoxically is making climate change, our true existential threat, fiercer.

Opening Pandora's Box
April 14, 2016
More and more American service members are fighting the Islamic State despite extremely complex nation states and a dizzying number of groups working out of tandem to accomplish often polar objectives.

Partner with Iranian Moderates
February 01, 2016
Instead of demonizing Iran under the guise of national security, our politicians should challenge orthodox hardline rhetoric, push for diplomatic relations, and work with Iranian moderates towards stabilizing the Middle East.

Anti-Muslim Rhetoric Dangers America
December 18, 2015
Our elected officials should take real actions towards strengthening our national security instead of assisting the Islamic State with propaganda victories by saying vetted Iraqi and Syrian refugees are not welcome in their home states.
