Episode-998- Solutions to Some of the Big Problems
Summary: Last week I had a great interview with James Howard Kunstler, a man I find interesting yet I also find many places where we disagree. Many wondered why I allowed some of his comments to go unchallenged, the reality is simple, I don’t bring guests on for debate sparing. I bring them on to give their view and trust that the audience will distill what they need, as each individual sees fit. I also have been around long enough to understand that it is a sorry ass weak mind that can’t stand to listen to a differing opinion. It is an even weaker mind that can’t learn from that opinion, even if it is wrong. Each individual perceives every problem, event, item, reality etc. from their own point of bias. If you only see the point of a nail and I only see the head, neither of us really knows what the nail looks like, but together we are much closer to the picture of what the whole is all about. Join Me Today as I Discuss… The real reason many insist “total collapse” is in our future Why we will not see a total energy collapse in our lifetimes (good and bad) Why believing in AGW based on CO2 lets us off way to easy, seriously The danger of oil peaking is actually coal and natural gas The law of unintended consequences is about to play out (may be) Every citizen a solider? How about every citizen a sentinel? Rebuilding society without a total collapse Rebuild soils and reestablish natural ecosystems Create designed ecosystems with “cheap energy” Develop and remove blockages to the urban ag movement Reestablish diversity in our seed lines Allow for the reintegration of small farm livestock Encourage rather then block architectural innovation Develop alternative energy in a decentralized model Turn garbage and waste into energy Crack down on companies that really are doing harm Repair and improve the energy grid Get corporate interests out of pure research Define and enforce separation of industry and government Put rail between places were people actually go frequently Create thousands and thousands of “laboratories of innovation” Develop a culture of leadership and self sufficiency Why you need to act for yourself now, and not worry about “but ________” Resources for Today’s Show… Members Support Brigade Join Our Forum Harvest Eating – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Global Warming Stopped 16 Years Ago The Scientific Method – For those that consider consensus to be science Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
