Prosperity without Growth
Production cannot increase forever. For the developed economies of the western world, prosperity without growth is a necessity and not a utopian dream any more. It is simply a delusion to believe the tendency of capitalism to efficiency will stabilize the climate or protect us from scarcity of resources. Access could replace excess. See links to five free Internet books.

Now there is video evidence that tribal first peoples do live in the areas slated for destruction.

Radical Botany Skillshare: Why native plants are important to the survival of the plane
Fenders Blue Butterfly and Kincaid Lupine Native plants are not just something pretty to look at. They have a direct link to human, insect and ecosystem survival. They are an essential link in the web of life. We all need to work on removing the turf and black top and bringing native plants back into our biome. Yet since the 1840's over 80 million acres have been taken out of native landscapes. Landscapes have been paved over, planted in non native turf grass and tilled for non native crops. It is time to welcome them home.

Food Not Bombs will be sharing free vegan meals outside local McDonald's stores all over the globe on World Food Day, October 16, 2010. ( Also called The International Day of Action Against McDonald's ) Corporate domination of our food is increasing world hunger and malnutrition. One in six people do not get enough food to be healthy. Over a billion people go hungry every month. The United Nations reports that 25,000 people around the world die from hunger related causes every day. Food Not Bombs volunteers proposed this action during the gathering in Monterrey, Mexico in May 2010.

We've been using the wrong comparison to judge the efficiency of meat production. Instead of citing a simple conversion rate of feed into meat, we should be comparing the amount of land required to grow meat with the land needed to grow plant products of the same nutritional value to humans. The results are radically different.

Why "Green Technology" Is Not Sustainable
Plenty of other pieces have been written explaining some of the problems with what has been called today's "greenwashing." Excellent points have been raised concerning its deeply consumeristic character, the fact that it actually bolsters the capitalist economic model which in and of itself cannot be sustainable, and the fact that it places the burden of fixing the ecological crisis on individual consumers, rather than on the industries who are actually to blame for creating this mess in the first place.
My intention is not to go against what these other pieces have said, but rather to shine some light on one area of the debate that has often been left too shadowy. That is, the technical sustainability of green technology itself, which often is not explored to the degree required.

Author Review: Wm. H. Kotke
At a free box I picked up a book that is very important to understand where civilization is going and what we might do for ourselves to continue beyond the collapse of The Final Empire. It's a two part book with The Collapse of Civilization coming first and The Seed of the Future finishing. From 1993, it's out of date, yet nonetheless relevant to the present eco-crisis.

William H. Kotke resides in Glendale, OR and has also written a follow-up book called Garden Planet in 2005. I don't have it, and want to borrow or buy it when I get through The Final Empire. His research and referencing satisfies the intellect plus he keeps it real by calling modern civilization akin to an alcoholic suffering delirium tremens!
