Out of Thin Air by Peter D Ward

January 17, 2023

Out of Thin Air by Peter D Ward is a book which focuses on how the changing levels of oxygen molded the evolution of animals over the past 500 million years. When oxygen first appeared on the Earth it was a poison to all the lifeforms living here but slowly, through the eons, creatures evolved […]

WildernessPunk – Rolling

July 30, 2022

I just saw a car commercial where they make fun of a guy using VR, calling him a loser, while the handsome guy and his gorgeous GF rush off into the wilds in their new SUV. It’s kind of strange to think in most ways I agree with the message and certainly would have been […]

The Anthropocene by Christian Schwagerl

July 17, 2022

The Anthropocene by Christian Schwagerl is a fantastic, if alarming, book. The concept is instead of calling our current era just another part of the Holocene, the evidence is overwhelming that humans are controlling the majority of how the world is changing. Whether it is modifying fauna, animals going extinct, or altering the weather itself, […]

WildernessPunk: Time – Health = Eco-Overload

May 31, 2019

What am I talking about this time, gentle readers? For those of you who know WildernessPunk you are familiar with its style of looking at important issues from a different perspective. While most people out there have their steadfast side of an argument where they hammer against those with a different view, WildernessPunk likes to […]

WildernessPunk: The Recycle Life Cycle

May 11, 2019

A few thoughts before I dive in. First, I know we all get hit over the head with the three Rs. The second is, since I’ve already covered Reduce and Reuse in the last few articles, we can fast forward to Recycle. Still bored… don’t worry I’m going to WildernessPunk this and get to the […]

WildernessPunk: The Use of Juice

March 14, 2019

A few weeks ago, I reviewed six of the easier techniques we can use to save money, strengthen our economy, and help preserve the environment. The third of these techniques which helps minimize our Negative Environmental Impact (NEI) is: Use Energy Wisely such as high efficiency devices and keeping them unplugged. Makes sense right? But […]

WildernessPunk: Park then Bark

February 28, 2019

A few weeks ago, yeah yeah, I got distracted, I spoke on various ways we can limit our Negative Environmental Impact (NEI). I’ve already tackled the first one on the list, (The Number One Thing https://bit.ly/2S6p8IB) where I discuss the serious cons wasting food creates. Today, I’m going to leap into number 2 on the […]

WildernessPunk: The Number One Thing

January 25, 2019

After my last adventure, I feel refreshed and ready to change the direction of WildernessPunk down a different one of its Arrows. This time diving into the issue of Climate Change. You know, the whole thing about keeping our planet alive. Often, in this stage in human existence, we’re informed of and confronted with the […]

WildernessPunk: Reboot

January 4, 2019

Well yeahhhhh, I have not picked up the mantel of WildernessPunk for a half a year. I feel somewhat remiss over this, but also justified, for I’d rather shut something down than risk becoming a hypocrite or just blurt out theories or lifestyles changes I’m not willing to engage in myself. . . The original […]
