Yes, I gladly support the Post Carbon Institute. Post Carbon Institute addresses cultural and social justice issues in an environmental context that is truly unique.What issues concern you the most?
Coverage of indigenous peoples–culture, knowledge and wisdom, which set the context for the ever-increasing activism of Mother Earth’s original peoples. The message and wisdom of their inextricable link to the land and natural forces is a message whose time is now.

If we imagine a post carbon world, we will be more able to achieve it.What issues concern you the most?
global warming leading to loss of biodiversity, food shortage, conflict/ war, ecocide, collapse.
Since the beginning PCI has focused on the hard cold (coal) facts: as concentrations of atmospheric CO2 and Methane increase the chances for life on Earth decrease. PCI helps me expand awareness to make the needed changes in our sloppy habits.What issues concern you the most?
School needs to be liberated. Modern schooling disempowers activists, those who retain their personal authority, who are not distracted by politics, and who organize and take actions that invent next culture. School delivers Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware which is no longer sufficient or interesting. It is each person’s job to create and move into the culture that they would love to live in.
PCI is one of the most effective organizations that is seriously confronting and educating people on the pressing need to once and for all decarbonize our energy systems. Richard Heinberg spoke at a colloquium sponsored by E F Schumacher Institute many years ago and his message was clear on this even back then.What issues concern you the most?
The rising levels of CO2 in the troposphere and consequent rising levels of water in the oceans amongst other horrible oceanic problems!
I care for the future and you do a great job for it by carefully steering minds and actions.
It’s one of the few organizations that grapples with all of the predicaments facing humanity, from climate change and energy depletion to the social issues that present big challenges to mitigating our predicaments.What issues concern you the most?
Nuclear war, nuclear power plant waste, eventual food production shortages, climate change, fiscal crisis and economic collapse, population overshoot and the collapse of industrial civilization.
Because it is one of the few organizations out there alerting people to the 2 terminal conditions of global capitalism: fossil fuel depletion & climate chaos. In addition, it’s helping encourage community based, resilient responses to the long emergency ahead.What issues concern you the most?
I would like the institute to put more thought into analyzing the immature yet growing resistance movement that is slowly coming together to oppose petro-powered globalization. How should it respond to ecocide & economic contraction? How can it win people away from xenophobic, militarist populism & promote Green populism instead? How can it encourage greater unity between the movement’s 3 battlefronts: protecting the planet, economic & social justice, and opposing militarism? How can it help build a “homefront” that allows communities to survive the coming global contraction and build resilient democratic responses to this long emergency?
Resilience.org’s ‘Daily Digest’ gives me access to a great range of research, analysis and ideas on common good economics and restorative ecology that I couldn’t get any other way, and find very valuable.What issues concern you the most?
Economic fairness and sustainability; change from the grassroots up.
The big issues that face us can feel overwhelming and disconnected. PCI helps make sense of them and offers concrete things we can do.What issues concern you the most?
My area of expertise and interest involved the psycho-social aspects of change and the fear that gets generated when people feel overwhelmed. I’m also interested in gender-specific issues and how we can understand and deal with the anger and depression that often accompany the recognition that we are out of balance with our world.
