Thanks for your update, Chris. I figure I'm about 2-3 years behind you (my first seedlings went in about two years ago) so it's quite inspiring to see what you've done at Fernglade from season to season.

Two recent articles suggest a new/old approach to protecting forests. One recounts changes in France to forest practices that were instituted a third of a millenium ago:

Chris Martenson (creator of the Crash Course) interviews John Michael Greer (of the Archdruid Report). It's enlightening to hear a conversation between two of the most sober social critics of our time. Their description of the opportunity lost in our recent elections is also the best commentary I've heard yet on that contest.

For years, our thinking around economics has been moving farther and farther from basic humanity and well-being. This is especially true of the more pathological Chicago School ideologies that have dominated global political economics for the last few decades.

But there are green shoots in this devastated landscape. In episode 50 of the Extraenvironmentalist podcast, Robert Neuworth talks about the more natural, informal economy that is actually a major contributor to survival worldwide.

With Sacred Economics, Eisenstein takes it even farther. This video clip is a great introduction to his principles. 

(And it has multilingual captions available.)

Belated Update:
For the record, Metabones eventually conceded the adaptor was flawed, and sent me a replacement. The new one worked (works) beautifully.

Dois artigos recentes (em inglês) sugerem uma direção nova/antiga para a proteção de florestas. O primeiro é sobre uma iniciativa no Pará:

A segunda conta sobre uma mudança na França. Mais do que três séculos atrás eles tiraram o controle local das florestas e bosques para montar um sistema nacional de controle. Muitas práticas de uso foram prohibidas. Agora estão voltando às práticas antigas:

The hill rises steeply to the west, so the dusk is long and mostly quite bright. It's my favorite time to listen to the birds. At this hour, they seem to be playing: singing at each other from the tops of the trees and darting rapidly from tree to tree. During the day, they are more purposeful, and always get to the mulberries before I do.

At the top of the hill, at dusk, the moths start coming out of the tall grass.
At first there are dozens, then hundreds, then thousands.
There are more, but I lose the ability to estimate.
The air is vibrating from their wings, and I feel the resonance in my lungs.

Por muitos anos, a maneira que nós entendemos sistemas econômicos tem fugido cada vez mais dos valores humanos e da meta de atingir um bem-estar. Isto é óbvio mesmo com respeito às ideologias mais patológicas da Universidade de Chicago, que têm dominado a política econômica global ha décadas.

Mas estão aparecendo mudas verdes nesta paisagem devastada. No nº 50 do podcast Extraenvironmentalist, eles falam sobre a economia informal, que é a fundação da sobrevivência para muita gente no mundo inteiro.

No livro dele, Sacred Economics, Eisenstein continua este pensamento ao nível de antropologia. Este clip apresenta uma introdução a estes princípios.

(E tem legendas disponíveis em português.)
