What would you do if you were already dead, had nothing to fear, nothing to lose, no one to impress? From now on, I will attempt to live as if I had nothing to fear, nothing to lose, and no one to impress. Why not? I’ve already greatly exceeded my expected expiration date.
Inspired by a forthcoming adventure, as well as the evidence underlying my work, I will attempt to temporarily disable all social media except YouTube, effective 13 July 2020. If I succeed in this endeavor, and the experience proves as enjoyable as I believe it will, then I will not re-enable most of my social-media accounts. If you must contact me after noon Eastern time on 13 July 2020, then I can be reached via email, as indicated beneath the About tab of this blog.
I will continue to post periodically at Nature Bats Last, including mention of videos in which I appear. You can subscribe to Nature Bats Last here, which means you will receive a notification via email when I post here. I will otherwise post generally only when I have a peer-reviewed paper published or when I announce or complete an interview (recent interviews are posted here). Along with cohost Kevin Hester, I will continue participating in Nature Bats Last Radio on the Progressive Radio Network the first Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time. However, I intend to greatly reduce the amount of time I spend online, as I indicated about a month ago.
I will continue to post videos on YouTube on the Nature Bats Last channel. You can subscribe to the channel here (click on the red SUBSCRIBE button), and you can become a member of the channel here. Membership includes benefits beyond subscription, at costs that vary with benefits.
As I have pointed out previously in this space, the typical responses to my evidence-based work include betrayal, derision, rejection, isolation, defamation, and plagiarism. Occasionally, though, I am merely mocked. Most people no longer need me to point out the ongoing loss of habitat for humans on Earth. I prefer silence to battling proverbial windmills and actual morons.
I owe a huge thanks to my supporters. However, I can offer only the time I have given and now my thanks. I have little else left to give.
