    Bendell's Deep Adaptation

    You are fortunate to live on the west coast where both Extinction Rebellion and the Sunrise Movement are active. Nothing like that in central Illinois. Coalitions are hugely important, I agree. How about this for a coalition: the Greater Decatur Black Chamber of Commerce receiving a pretty good...

    Bendell's Deep Adaptation

    I've spent the afternoon reading Bendell's 2018 Deep Adaptation paper and his article on Resilience.org responding to criticisms of his ideas. I like this from the Resilience.org article very much: The above is an excellent resolution. I remain concerned by Bendell's seeming unwillingness to...

    Bendell's Deep Adaptation

    So, egalitarian, I've joined the Deep Adaptation forum in an attempt to increase my understanding of the work you and others are doing. As someone who does believe the difficult or dire effects of climate change are already hitting hard many populations in the US, I want to improve my awareness...

    Bendell's Deep Adaptation

    I know you're going to get much better replies than this one, but I'm wondering if you've seen this video produced by Nate Hagens. It's 1.5 hrs., but moves very quickly and it's pretty engaging. He provides no political frame for his opinions at all, but he goes straight at our current...

    Ian Angus part one "Nitrogen Crisis: A Neglected Threat to Earth's Life Support Systems"

    Hopefully, at least some of you who read these posts are from the Midwest. Farm country. In addition to being excited at finding this article by Ian Angus, I'm very interested in its topic: the nitrogen cycle's disruption of the Anthropocene. Whahh... ? I fear some of you may say. Bear with me...

    An article from Dianne Feeley on multiple approaches to a Green New Deal

    Dianne Feeley provides an overview of six organizations' approaches to the GND or what is needed to address climate change. I find it very helpful to see these statements compared side-by-side. "Making the Green New Deal Real" by Dianne Feeley for Solidarity.org.

    "The Rise of the Rights of Nature" by Rapid Transition Alliance

    One way to rein in human narcissism is to collectively agree, as a growing number of communities and countries do, that ecosystems should be recognized as "persons" If such a concept can be applied to an artificially constructed legal entity, the corporation, all the more reason for an 'entity'...

    "Goodbye Revolution?" by Tim Horras for the Marxist Center's Regeneration Magazine

    I heard Tim Horras speak at the Marxist Center conference in Denver this January. A thoughtful and well-studied guy, he works with tenants unions and other base building groups in Philadelphia.

    "What Urban Liberals Might Learn from Rural Rebels" by Russel Arben Fox

    I like this article, which I saw thanks to the SCNCC Facebook page post. I like it a lot. It's mostly a review of what sounds like a great book, For-Profit Democracy: Why the Government Is Losing the Trust of Rural America by rural sociologist Loka Ashwood, but the article also points out--as I...

    "A Green New Deal for Agriculture" by Raj Patel and Jim Goodman, for Jacobin

    I've been having a bit of trouble with Jacobin articles lately. Too techno enamored and too centrist for my taste most of the time. But this article, brought to my attention this morning by Steve O. of the SCNCC organizing list is very different. An in-depth look at agricultural history and ways...

    What are we to make of AOC's recent legislative votes?

    David, let's hope she keeps speaking up strongly. Curious, though. Would you define "real power" for me? Last time I checked, even activists and politicians and revolutionaries have to eat! I hope you keep growing food in your garden. Socialist Cuba, blockaded by the country in which you and I...
