I wondered this very thought today, at least 15 times as I passed apartment building with huge slabs of cement, or large manicured lawns that are sprayed and watered extensively... And I am wishing I could figure out how to get things to successfully grow and produce - here in the PNW. I don't know what it is, but I have had the worst gardens of my life here...

Peak oil is so last year. Now we can worry about peak everything: peak food, peak soil, peak fertilizer, even peak bees.

At last there's somebody pretty much stating what I think is the truth about what we can expect from people in reaction to climate change. It's time to stop putting out messages telling the public that changing climate is dangerous but, it'll be okay "if we act quickly" to make big economic and social change. It ain't gonna happen. It's time to focus on the consequences of the 6th great extinction event. 
The numbers are in. 2014 was the hottest year on Earth ever recorded (records go back to 1888). December finished it off as the hottest month ever. 6 of the months last year, in fact, hold that record. The last time a 'coldest month ever' was recorde...

Okay, so now the abject fear I have had for, at least, the past ten years, insomnia, nightmares, and panic everyday, to the effect that I can not work for an asshole, without telling them they are (in a non violent communicative way, of course), has just been validated by huff post?
And then there is not even an inkling of the necessary measures?
Is that because they may mean digging in, and that would only be available to the most psychotic of our population?
My biggest upset is that I am not intelligent enough to fix anything, to assist in the necessary tech/processes.
Obviously living without a car, being vegan, buying 2nd hand everything, etc... has done seemingly, nothing.

Like Russian roulette with all but one chamber loaded.
 
One hundred and ninety-five countries, including Canada, have formally agreed that we need to limit the Earth’s temperature rise over pre-industrial levels to two degrees. It’s uncontroversial. And if you’re not sure what the world would look like if the temperature exceeded two degrees, imagine the movie Mad Max...

KICKSTARTER FUNDRAISER - Please share. Thanks.
Permaculture Activist, the world’s longest running permaculture journal, needs your support for a new and vibrant online presence. You may access the campaign page directly using this link:

MESSAGE from Publisher Peter Bane

Dear Friends,
After nearly 25 years at the helm of the magazine, I will be turning over management to Senior Editor John Wages on April 1st. Trends in the publishing world have shown that it is time to update the magazine's outreach and some aspects of its presentation. It is our view that this will best be done with fresh thinking and new management; my personal life is moving in other directions and I am happy that John is willing and prepared to step into the path I have been walking.

We want to launch soon a digital version of the magazine, under the new name Permaculture Design Magazine, for e-subscription to supplement the print edition, which will continue, also under the new title but with our familiar format.

With digital subscription we would expect to reach a wider readership with greater flexibility, and would be able to publish some stories and items for which there is presently no room in the quarterly. We have indexed 90 of the 95 issues and will soon complete that project with the 2014 issues added. This gives us good purchase on making the back issue content available digitally to subscribers and others over the Web. And our website, so capably administered by Keith Johnson these past 16 years, needs a major overhaul, better navigation, a clearer user interface, and more capacity. We have a professional designer at work right now and could expand that work if additional funding can be found.

To do these things we need money, more than the magazine generates under its present business model. We are asking for
your help to raise $15,000 (or more) via a Kickstarter campaign launching today. It is especially important to the success of the campaign that a good surge of donations comes in the first few days to build momentum and show broad support.

Numbers of gifts are as important as dollars. Our potential audience is large and you could help us expand it by spreading this message throughout your networks.

 A letter with somewhat more detail is attached if you care to read more about our thinking on this transition. The Kickstarter site carries a video of myself and John addressing the need, and of course, we are happy to answer questions by email.

Please share this request widely, give as much and as often as you can, and help us keep community journalism vital for another 25 years.

Peter Bane
