From Chris Jonsson:
This program is very powerful and is in a happily condensed format, well worth watching. Bill McKibben is so intelligent, knowledgeable, reasonable, understandable. Do yourself a favor and watch this 1 hour program and follow the ideas that are presented to us for the purpose of being kind to the earth.
It was recorded before the US Gulf oil spill, and is even more appropriate for our world now. Feedback from you to me is always welcome.
About the Program
The former staff writer for the New Yorker argues that it’s time to hunker down, make do with significantly less and concentrate on essentials if humans are to survive on a rapidly changing (degrading) planet.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
