Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

The Least Anyone With An Opinion Should Know About Global Warming | VIDEO three minutes and sixteen seconds:

Indeed, if one is not to risk being called an ass hat,** one may find it useful to actually be familiar with a subject in order to have an opinion about it.*

*An uninformed opinion, the quintessence of irrelevance, is not worth as much as the air, time, kilo-calories, etc., by means of the waste of which it seemingly was communicated. Ideally, communication, lest it risk being an empty referent, as an activity encompasses only that which may be said with a straight face to have meaning on some level.

Be seeing you.
