The Case For Full-Scale US Military Intervention in ISIS Controlled Syria and Iraq

There is a job to be done and the time for hesitation has ended. The muscle and might of our beautiful country must bring to bear the the full weight of our just cause upon the scourge, the disease, that is ISIS.   



Indiscriminate violence is upon us. There are approximately 10,000 to 20,000 ISIS soldiers that will not be deterred or talked out of seeking to kill as many people as possible, in their pursuit of starting a world war.  Their hearts are bent on blackening the earth and… Continue

This description could seem certainly alluring if you don’t have in…

Eco-Politics: Blood & Trees

Deforestation is well-known to most as a critical ecological problem. Nowadays, even an elementary schooler has probably been taught that the rainforests are shrinking. If asked how to solve the problem, people of all ages would likely rack their brains to think of “go green” solutions like recycling or planting trees in the park. But few would think of halting the import of timber from conflict-stricken countries as a potential environmentally friendly solution. What’s war got to do with…

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?

In the wake of troubling IPCC reports on climate change's effect on the oceans and land use, what more can the UN do? What are the challenges of nature-based solutions?
