The Global Fool

our planet is our village


Science-based but offbeat, far-reaching but on point, The Global Fool  provides a snapshot of environmental and well-being motifs—with a focus on our planet, human health, and the health of our relationship with the natural world.

Why the Fool? In mystical symbolism, the Fool is the spirit in search of global experience and knowledge and is associated with zero, the conscious state of being not influenced by the ego. He/she represents the initial stage of development in the journey of discovery through life, a journey that ends with the World to then repeat itself.

  1. What’s going on here? I’ve been waiting for a few months now. No new posts. Miss reading the science of the environment on this blog. Come back!

  2. Sure I do appreciate a blog free of ads. I do appreciate The Global Fool’s bloggers even more as it is clear they write because of personal dedication. I come here often looking for food for thought on the environment and other interesting topics. Speaking for myself, a little more coverage of pollutants in food and drinking water would be welcome. I find the previous posts on arsenic contamination of rice, chickens and drinking water very compelling. What about other contaminants of this type?
