These States want to Make Planning a Pipeline Protest a Crime

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 12:38:30 +0000

As pipeline protests continue to delay and, sometimes, stop energy projects in their tracks, the fossil fuel industry and Republican lawmakers are looking for new ways to clamp down on environmental protest.




Everything that Rises must Converge

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 10:49:11 +0000

In a time of fall and fragmentation , if you are wise, you do not look for the powerful Ones with their faraway promises and angry rhetoric. What you find yourself searching for is something real, something coherent, something you can count on — your relationship with fabric of things, a certain meaning that comes from the natural world, held instinctively in the forms of creatures and plants.




The Mobility Maze

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 10:51:17 +0000

Mobility, after all, is generally less important to people than accessibility. When we go somewhere it’s not the movement that’s valuable, it’s the access to something – a school, shopping, a workplace, a friend’s house or a park – that really counts.




Beyond Sustainability? — We are Living in the Century of Regeneration

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 10:39:50 +0000

The term regenerative development, on the other hand, carries within it a clear aim of regenerating the health and vitality of the nested, scale-linking systems we participate in. At a basic level regeneration also communicates not to use resources that cannot be regenerated, nor to use any resources faster than they can be regenerated.




Frida Berrigan, Growing Up With the Threat of Pervasive Violence

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 11:14:58 +0000

Don’t you think that true security lies not in our arming ourselves to the teeth against other people — that is, in our disconnection from them — but in our connection to them, to the web of mutuality that has bound societies, small and large, for millennia?




The Impact of Climate Change on Mental Health is Impossible to Ignore

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 11:13:04 +0000

Overall, the consensus in the scientific literature is that climate change will increase the number of people exposed to extreme events and, therefore, to subsequent psychological problems, such as worry, anxiety, depression, distress, loss, grief, trauma and even suicide.




Hitch-Hiking, Ivan Illich and Degrowth

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 10:22:49 +0000

(image)

When hitch-hiking, a certain irony is common: Time and time again, the authors’ of this post have been picked up by drivers who immediately instruct them that hitch-hiking used to work, but now is impossible.




Post Peak Minsky—Debt, Unsustainability, and Inequality

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 10:01:53 +0000

(image)

If we truly want to increase equality, then, it will have to be created at a sustainable level, and thus ones much lower than that enjoyed by the rich, middle-classes, and even workers of advanced industrial nations alike.  We may choose to fight inequality by way of strikes, wage increases, and taxation, but that will not return us to a golden age; it will hasten our rendezvous with economics in the age of resource exhaustion and mounting clean-up costs.




Fake news, algorithmic sentinels, and facts from the future

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 15:57:54 +0000

(image)

How easy is it to tell the difference between so-called “fake news” and real news? Could algorithms designed to do that exclude important stories about climate and environment?




Rebel Cities 1: Marielle Franco Presente!

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 12:05:53 +0000

Marielle was a leading light in Brazil’s Feminist Spring, a new generation of Afro-Brazilian and indigenous women fighting back against Brazil’s intensifying attacks against people of color, women, LGBT people and other oppressed communities.




How Could Permaculture Assist International Development Workers? A New Opportunity

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 11:28:55 +0000

Permaculture for Development Workers invites practitioners working at all levels in development to consider incorporating permaculture into their approach and demonstrates how doing so could increase the suitability and sustainability of their programmes – as well as supporting development workers’ personal resilience.
