Crash Course

No posting after today until March 11, most likely, as I'll be on vacation.

In the meantime, keep yourself busy reading Chris Martenson's crash course on the unsustainability of our economic, environmental and energy systems.

Sustainability has kind of been corrupted into meaning replacing your light bulbs, but we need to remember that it means things that can't be sustained won't be sustained and start figuring out how the core systems that keep our society functioning can be moved to a sustainable footing, because they're very far from one right now.

  • The Canadian Centre for Architecture has an excellent podcast series taken from a conference they held where architects/engineers/intellectuals try to get a handle on what sustainability means in practice and beyond the warm and fuzzy buzzword it's usually taken for.

    It's worth listening to! And have a nice vacation!

  • Creating a sustainable society is easy. Doing it gracefully is a little trickier.
