Have read Richard Heinberg’s books. Was founder of a local transition town. Author of two books Healthy Money Healthy Planet –Developing Sustainability through New Money Systems and of The Big Shift – Redesigning Money, Tax, Welfare and Governance for the Next Economic System.What issues concern you the most?
The fact that so few people understand the effecting of declining EROI on the economic system. Climate change activists will eventually be faced with this as the economy is at war with the climate.
I have about once a year, four or five times either to PCI or Resilience. Your work should be prioritized on a crowded contribution list, although many other crises pop up and then it is hard to choose which to support from limited funds. I have followed him, read several of his books, and recommended them in a forum. In a sane and noncorrupt administration he would surely be offered a top post. Heinberg’s clear writing in such titles as “The End of Growth” can deprogram a willing reader slumbering in a Dow Jones consensus trance… I am behind at present on his current articles and also am not keeping up on many issues. More coffee!
I support PCI because 1) The research they do on the ending of fossil fuels, 2) the fantastic educational work on Resilience and the wonderful Resilience.org website 3) The support for their fellows who are seriously looking at how we can whether these volatile times in less volatile ways.What issues concern you the most?
Our lack of foresight as a society and as a globe – allowing the momentum of capitalism based on extractive industries to go unabated, gaining speed making one wonder how will it ever shift and change without major crashing.
I support PCI primarily because of the work of Richard Heinberg. Overall, regardless of the short-term circumstances of carbon energy, we as a species need to be focused on delivering a future free from the numerous detrimental side-effects of the various energy sources: environmental degrdation, political and social instability, and stagnating technological advancement.What issues concern you the most?
Currently, I’m most concerned with tar sands oil as it appears there is no safe or economic method for accessing this stuff and its use indicates a limited time threshold for switching to renewable or nuclear sources.
There is no to carbonate the earth.What issues concern you the most?
Oil, gas, “fracking” drilling. Why aren’t we looking to the future and the best? Geothermal … deep geo to supply unlimited energy forever. It’s there.
I appreciate PCI’s simple and easy to understand problem analysis with earnest grappling of solutions, their strengths and weaknesses. I love Richard Heinberg’s dedication, lecture style, sincerity, and the real ness of the fire analysis. And I like the diversity of authors and efforts at resilience.org.
I am very low income and only donate a small amount to a few organizations. Your leadership is important, research on what we must do and educating the public about curbing climate change.
I don’t remember how I got on your mailing list. Every message I opened had a lot of links I wanted to read and yet I never found time. They stacked up for a year and a half. Shortly after the election I was desperate for nonprofits to send a message that spoke the times in an intelligent and strategic way – something different from “do you hate Trump? If so, send us $5”. Your email during that period was the best I received – striking the right balance of realism and shall I say, lack of despair.
I have given modest amount because organizations doing this valuable work need support from everyone who believes in the work and has confidence in the organization. Richard Heinberg strikes me as a rare combination of intelligence, cool headedness, industry and public spiritedness–so whatever I read of his is edifying and inspiring.
Belief that we need to live within our solar budget and in accordance more with nature
