Profile Information

About Me:
I have been a tree hugger since I was 14. I was hooked by the sense that we are all dependent upon the global ecosystem. This seems to be the first that I grasped the importance of systems and our understanding of systems. Out of appreciation for the global ecosystem I progressed from interest in
recycling projects to
interest in energy matters to
urban design to
economics. Of course concern for justice, and for conservation and protection of nature were always intact.

I feel that now I have gotten at the root cause of our most significant environmental problems. Our current economic system insists on infinite growth on a finite planet. How ironic at this time when the scientists who take the trouble to see whether economic activity exceeds the Earth's carrying capacity find that we are in excess for sustaining quality of life. This includes the condition of our climate, fresh water, biodiversity and soil. My discovery of the steady state economy lead me to understand that things don't have to be how they have been, just as we no longer assume that the Earth is flat or that it is the center of our planetary system. We can indeed implement a paradigm of economics that regards the Earth as our life support system, rather than as a place in which we can have infinite extraction and pollution without serious consequences. Now as Thomas Kuhn says in "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" no paradigm is absolute, so at best what I can claim to promote is the closest thing to a truth at this time. Design can be a useful tool in advocacy for steady state economy and in the context of the sse.

Yo, Greg:
Happy New Year, my old friend. May the Co-ops flourish in 2009.
Thanks for the opportunity to help in any way possible. Perhaps I could write a story about the organization for a local pub. Let's talk.
Peace and Understanding

Clean power = jobs!

Did you really think I was done talking about the Clean Power Plan? Silly you. This is important stuff!

Most of you know that, bottom line, the environmental impact is the most important factor to me. But, if I must talk economics (a.k.a. jobs), then I will. Or at least [...]

Pence versus the environment

Here’s a question for you: Are you familiar with the Clean Power Plan?

In June, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed the Clean Power Plan that will “maintain an affordable, reliable energy system, while cutting pollution and protecting our health and environment.” Sounds like a winner!

But fear not, emission-loving Hoosiers [...]
