Newsletter Subscription

Dr. Botkin has started a new video newsletter. In these issues, he will discuss a wide variety of topics from science to music to art.  In addition, he will be covering topics relevant to the CO2 Coalition and the global warming debate.  The first issue is about a fundamental subject important to that debate. 

Here is a way to view a short introduction to the first newsletter.

(Subscribers will receive the newsletter directly from us, not via any major internet source.)

Monthly we will be putting out a newsletter in both written and video form, and weekly we will be putting out folk music related content like songs, in video and just music forms. 

         Subscription Options:

For a small annual subscription, you will receive private links. You can choose which of the products you want to receive: just the newsletter; just the folk music; or both.

         There are several subscription options: only the video/print newsletter; only the folk music we produce (called What Makes us One.) or both!

1: Subscription to the video/print newsletter including the folk music

$115/year___ or $12/month___ (therefore 20 or 24 items per year in total)

Although it is listed there is one video newsletter per month, as we get going with the production of the video newsletters, we hope to be able to create additional newsletters as issues arise in the world.

(This video newsletter and folk music recordings are made possible by professional music-video producer, Joel Olivo, to whom Dr. Botkin owes great thanks and appreciation.  They have been working together for a number of years.)

Please let us know which subscription you are interested in!

DR. BOTKIN & HUMAN SPACE TRAVEL

Dr. Botkin has conducted research on human space travel. Some of his findings can be found in the newsletters below. With a team of four other scientists, Dr. Botkin published a number of papers about the fundamentals of ecological theory and about the problems of an ecological life support system of long-term space travel. The sources for the technical papers can be found here. If you would like to be on the mailing list for the newsletter, please contact Dr. Botkin.
