I’ve Moved from Medium to Bulletin
I long appreciated the Medium platform for its spare design and simple tools for writing and integrating a variety of media. This was a great space to work in after I ended my nine-year span of Dot Earth blogging at The New York Times.
But I’ve moved my base of operation to two places.
- On my Columbia Climate School Sustain What livestream program, I host solution-focused conversations on the tough issues we face in these turbulent times and arts-focused “Sunday Sanity” jam sessions that revive spirits and build community.
- I’ve moved my writing to my new Sustain What newsletter/blog at Bulletin. This is the platform Facebook has built as kind of a startup hub for journalists focused from local to global scales and a host of commentators and public figures. This introductory post there explains why, including why I’m working with Facebook’s support.
There I’ve already tackled everything from confronting the societal sources of climate vulnerability that get missed when we focus too much on climate change to last-ditch tactics that might save the world’s most endangered and tiniest cetacean — Mexico’s vaquita porpoise.
My latest post took on the toughest of all low-probability, mega-impact threats — the still-real prospect that a rock from space could derail the human experiment.
Wherever I am, my goal is to foster reality-based paths to progress for you, the rest of our divine and felonious species and this still-wondrous planet.
