We already have all the knowledge and tools to effect a transition to a sound, sustainable economy. We will have to do that, since we're not only polluting the planet to such a degree that we are poisoning ourselves and the ecosystems we are part of, but peak cheap oil and climate change will simply force us to move in the right direction. I will share some postings and links that will clarify the issues and some of the essential solutions. We do not have many years left to change course, so, think about this carefully and consider what you can do yourself to effect the necessary changes.
Let's start with an interview with Rob Hopkins, originator of the idea of Transition Towns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQF09NG00V8
Rob also mentions permaculture in this interview. I will RSS feed some of my postings on Temple Illuminatus on the forum, when I have figured out how to do that.
