Wildflowers in oil field – California

We simply CANNOT continue consuming 100 million barrels of oil per day. That is 5.5 Billion gallons PER DAY.

Worse, we continue to alter the chemistry of our atmosphere and waters in ways that will have real consequences.

We are now at > 405 parts per million carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the highest in over 800,000 years. Over the past 150+ years, the pH of surface ocean waters has fallen by ~0.1. Since the pH scale, like the Richter scale, is logarithmic, that 0.1 drop represents a 30% increase in acidity. As we continue to pump CO² increasing the concentration, the ocean will continue to acidify, dramatically changing life.

It’s time to aggressively move to renewable energy sources like geothermal, hydropower, wind, solar, and yes advanced nuclear.

What 🌎 do we want to leave our children?

FNC Tucker Carlson Palm Springs Racist Trees

Screenshot Tucker Carlson 12-21-2017

I joined Tucker Carlson Tonight again Thursday night, December 21, 2017, on Fox News! Tucker wanted to mockingly revisit the story of trees allegedly planted for racist reasons along a golf course in Palm Springs, California.

My argument is focused on racist origins (the neighborhood came about because Palm Springs engaged in ethnic housing cleansing), the fire hazard of tamarisk trees, and the waste of the water in drought ravaged California.

FNC Tucker Carlson California China Climate Deal

FNC Tucker Carlson California China Climate Deal

I joined Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight with Tucker Carlson on June 7, 2017. We discussed California Governor Jerry Brown striking a deal with the Chinese to work on clean energy, trading technology and committing resources in a non-binding agreement.

From The Hill:

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed an agreement to work with China to lower greenhouse gas emissions Tuesday, just days after President Trump pulled the United States out of an international climate change agreement.

The agreement, though nonbinding, aims to expand cooperation between China and California on renewable energy, zero-emission vehicles and low-carbon urban development, Brown’s office said. It will establish a joint working group of Chinese and Californian officials to come up with ways to work together, and to invest in programs that would cut carbon emissions.

Veterinarian Dr Jody Bearman On Homeopathy

Homeopathy shutterstock_521289955

Veterinarian Dr. Jody Bearman joins my KGO 810 radio show every Friday at 1:15pm Pacific Time to discuss all things pets. A topic that comes up regularly, and is apparently quite controversial, is homeopathy. Dr. Jody wrote this to help explain, clarify, and spread the word.


By finding the remedy that is the “same” as the disease the individual animal already has, allows the body to heal itself from chronic or acute disease. “Same” in this case means the unique things that make that animal different from other animals with the problem, such as liking to be touched where they are sore, or hiding when ill, or better with the application of heat, or greenish discharges, or the problem only happens at midnight every 2 weeks, or anything that is different or unusual.

Some animals don’t have unique signs of disease, which can make determining their remedy more challenging. As you can tell from the above, the conventional diagnosis is not necessarily helpful in treating an animal homeopathically(although it can be useful), but close observation and reporting is very helpful.

Once a remedy is given, the body slowly and gradually heals itself of chronic disease, and can rapidly heal acute disease, such as shock, even more quickly than conventional medicine in many cases. After homeopathic treatment, the life force of the animal becomes stronger, which makes the animal more resistant to any disease, and allows them to heal more quickly even from injuries.

Dr. Jody Bearman, DVM, CVA, CVCH, CVSMT graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BS in Bacteriology and from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine with a DVM in 1992. She worked in small town mixed practice (horses, farm animals, small animals) then small animal and exotic practice using Western medicine for 16 years.

Wanting to help animals that couldn’t be diagnosed or treated with Western medicine and those that developed severe side effects from Western medicine, she took the Chi Institute for Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine mixed animal course and became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist in 2005. She is also a certified Veterinary Chinese Herbalist and practices tui-na (Chinese massage and physical therapy) and food therapy and was now a lab instructor at the Chi Institute-the first of it’s kind outside of China. She became certified in veterinary spinal manipulation therapy at The Healing Oasis Wellness Center in May 2014, is a member of the College of Animal Chiropractors, completed the Pitcairn Institute for Veterinary Homeopathy course, published papers in The American Journal of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy journal, and the Integrative Veterinary Care Journal.

Ethan Explains Bayer Buys Monsanto

Ethan Explains Bayer Buys Monsanto

Who owns your food? Well, with Bayer AG buying Monsanto for $66 billion, one giant company is about to own nearly every aspect of the food chain.

Yes, that’s right, they’ll own it. Because Monsanto produces Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) seed and Bayer makes the farm chemicals, they will own it. They own it because each of those components the farmer relies on is patented. They’re able to patent that seed because they’ve modified it through genetic engineering. Then they own what you eat and have the financial clout to “own” members of Congress and the Senate in those farm states.

The agricultural policy of the United States is skewed in favor of these big companies because of their financial clout. It is not in favor of the farmers or the consumer (you and me,)  I had a Midwestern farmer/rancher friend explain to me how the giant ag companies pay for crops right below the subsidized price so the farmer makes little and the agri-giant makes money from the federal subsidies and own the supply chain marking up the food to the food manufacturing companies. Our tax dollars make Monsanto and Bayer AG their profits.

Do you think a giant, German based, multi-national, mega-corporation should own a huge chunk of the food supply?

Ethan Explains Sugar Lies

Ethan Explains Sugar Lies

We do love our sugar. It’s in everything on the grocery store shelf now. Time to dial that back!

Now we find out that the sugar industry paid two Harvard researchers back in the 1960s. These payments caused them to change their findings from sugar causes cardiovascular disease to fat causes cardiovascular disease.

That’s right! Researchers at the UCSF School of Medicine published their findings yesterday in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). We’ve been lied to for decades harming our health and likely killing many Americans.

It’s time to cut way back on your sugar consumption. Follow some of my recipes for a healthy way to make delicious sweets and start reading labels looking out for sugar, corn sugar, corn syrup, and high fructose corn syrup. There is no need to completely eliminate sugar, but there is a definite need to cut way back. Now.

Ethan Explains Killing Cancer

Ethan Explains Killing Cancer

What are the best approaches for killing cancer? We all want to destroy this scourge and Vice President Joe Biden is leading a “moonshot” to get it.

But where she we focus and how much money should we spend? It’s always about the money. Which leads me to “pinkwashing.” The phenomenon every October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month when everything is pink. But how much of that fundraised money goes to research and treatment? Not enough.

Further, now we have conflicting information on mammograms and when they should be done.

I suggest we need to focus more on WHY we have such high rates of cancer to prevent it in the first place, and that doesn’t just mean slather on toxic sunscreens.

The second prong is treatment and I think the “moonshot” has it right by focusing on DNA and immunotherapy.

Ethan Explains Space Race Problem

Ethan Explains Space Race Problem

So many of us have dreamt of going into space. Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Paul Allen are all in the private space race game as it is no longer exclusively the domain of government entities. Yesterday, Musk’s SpaceX suffered a big setback with the massive explosion of one of its rockets yesterday in Florida. Worse yet, it had a Facebook Internet satellite payload on it, which perished atop the rocket.

Since rockets are just massive explosions that we attempt to harness and direct, why are we still using them as propulsion into space? Why aren’t these billionaire pioneers moving away from that 20th century technology? Especially since it is obviously and inherently dangerous. Why not work on developing the 21st century space elevator using cutting-edge materials like the breakthrough futuristic material graphene?

Better Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten-Free

Better Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten-Free

I am always working to make better tasting and healthier cookies for my family. Who doesn’t want a delicious snack that satisfies a sweet tooth while being packed with nutrition?

These peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies are my best ones yet. New to these from my earlier recipes is the substitution of Ghee for butter and the addition of powerful medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil, plus delicious peanut butter.

New Ingredients


Ghee has been used in Indian cuisine for ages. It has a much higher smoke point than butter (485°F for ghee versus 302°F for butter) and has a long list of healthier attributes. According to The Times of India, “Lab studies have shown ghee to reduce cholesterol both in the serum and intestine. It does it by triggering an increased secretion of biliary lipids. Ghee is also good for nerves and brain. It helps control eye pressure and is beneficial to glaucoma patients. Ghee is most notably said to stimulate the secretion of stomach acids to help with digestion, while other fats, such as butter and oils, slow down the digestive process and can sit heavy in the stomach. Ghee is rich with antioxidants and acts as an aid in the absorption of vitamins and minerals from other foods, serving to strengthen the immune system. A high concentration of butyric acid, a fatty acid that contains anti-viral properties, is believed to inhibit the growth of cancerous tumors.”

Medium Chain Triglycerides

Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) are something new to my cooking repertoire. My wife and I have used coconut oil before but not filtered MCT. According to the Cleveland Clinic Wellness, “They have been shown to lower weight, and to decrease metabolic syndrome, abdominal obesity, and inflammatory markers. They decrease appetite when taken with or before a meal and are quite palatable. MCTs, when taken during pregnancy, prevented obesity for children later in life. MCTs decrease triglyceride cholesterol levels and raise HDL (healthy) cholesterol, which causes the total cholesterol value to rise as well, but for a good reason. MCTs have an unusual chemical structure that allows the body to digest them easily. Absorbed intact, they are taken straight to the liver and used directly for energy. In this way, they are processed more like carbohydrates than like other fats.”

Peanut Butter

Peanut butter has been a favorite of mine since a childhood involving piles of PB&J sandwiches. Peanut butter is filling, relatively high fiber and protein, delicious, but has other beneficial attributes with which you might not be familiar. According to Prevention, “A serving of peanut butter has 3 mg of the powerful antioxidant vitamin E, 49 mg of bone-building magnesium, 208 mg of muscle-friendly potassium, and 0.17 mg of immunity-boosting vitamin B6. Research shows that eating peanuts can decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions. One study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that consuming 1 ounce of nuts or peanut butter (about 2 tablespoons) at least 5 days a week can lower the risk of developing diabetes by almost 30%.”

Now back to the peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies.



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put everything in the mixing bowl except the butter. Then warm the ghee until liquid (I do it in a microwave safe ceramic dish) and pour over the ingredients in the bowl. Run the mixer blending thoroughly until it starts forming a nice dough ball. Put in refrigerator for a few minutes if you find the mixture too sticky to work with. Line a cookie sheet (or two) with parchment paper or butter the cookie sheet. I use a tablespoon and a half per cookie from a melon baller style cookie scoop. Bake for 13 minutes or brown to your liking. Move the cookies to a cooling rack for a couple of minutes and enjoy!

This recipe takes me about 15  minutes to prep and about 10 minutes for clean up in the kitchen. Makes 40-45 cookies, depending on size.

These are sweet and delicious and my family wipes them out quickly without feeling heavy or gross and they have minimal effect on blood sugars as all of the ingredients are no or low glycemic.
