Well, the astrophysicist and I finally managed to write something together. More than a year and a half ago when I moved to Scienceblogs I promised that Eric would be my sometime- collaborator. I promise I did not realize was a total lie. You see, the way we’ve managed over the years to raise four…

One of my many other hats is the one I wear as a member of the ASPO-USA board and editor of the Peak Oil Review Commentary. My favorite kind of commentary is the one that puts together short pieces from a lot of thinkers, all answering the same question – and this must be the…

It is claiming I don’t have permission to embed it (I do, actually), so you can see the video here. I gave this talk back at the beginning of October, in my conference as a member of the ASPO-USA Board. This was only the second time that ASPO has had a significant talk about the…

Anti-Consumerist Gift Files: Donate!

In a perfect world, perhaps we’d all have already made our own homemade gifts for everyone, but most of us aren’t that perfect. Many of us need to acquire some gifts, and the challenge is how to spend our money well, in things that are valuable, lasting and worth having. Over the course of the…

Let ‘Em Know How Much You Care

ASPO managed a real coup, getting an editorial in _The Hill_ (The Congressional Website) two days before our Congressional Briefing and Press Conference on Thursday. We’re doing everything we can to bring the words “peak oil” into the public eye. This is a great opportunity for you to make sure that your congressperson and their…

Getting Crazy…

I’m about to leave town. Oh, and I’m about to start my Adapting in Place Class. And I’m about to begin my new liveblogging project. And I have to clean the barn, vaccinate the goats, band two goats and get my life ready to run with only one adult. And do a lot of laundry.…

I know there has been a lot of ASPO posting right now – what can I say except it is consuming my entire existence, so it creeps into your blog posts too ;-). The fun part will come when the conference liveblogging begins and all that great information starts flowing! But this is pretty awesome.…

ASPO-USA Conference LiveBlog!

Well, we’ve finally got a mostly-complete ASPO Conference schedule. The problem is exactly the sort of problem you’d really like to have when running one of these – that there are just too many serious thinkers who need a spot. It is really tough to finalize the conference schedule when every day you are receiving…

I’m really excited about the ways that ASPO-USA is evolving. ASPO’s role has been to raise awareness about Peak Oil, and it is serving to expose the issue in new ways. I joined the board of an organization that I’d once criticized publically for being elitist and dominated by old white guys because those same…

Stuff

I’m about to go out of town for three days to a conference on dealing with poverty issues, energy depletion and climate change, and I’m a little nervous. We’ve had no babies born since Meadowsweet’s appearance two weeks ago, and I have three does due in the next week – not only am I a…
