Energy descent and transition in Mexico, part 1

Holger Hieronimi, Energy Bulletin

“In Mexico nothing happens, until it happens.” This is an old proverb here, and it can also easily apply to the current situation. Everything feels tranquilo and smooth, as if it is nothing out of the ordinary. However, as history shows us, once something begins in Mexico, it generally develops rapidly, and can end up being intensely spectacular.

Housewifely virtues: handwork

Sharon Astyk, Casaubon's Book

Handwork is not and should not be a gendered province - all of us have time when we must sit and listen, or time when we want to converse. As times get more stressful, we may find that we have more of this time, not less - for all that we have more work to do when we must make do with less money and energy, we also often have more of this time. That is, unemployment, a more seasonal life, less television, fewer nights out and fewer long car trips may mean more reasons to sit, and be quiet together. If the power does go out, or get too expensive, handwork makes the evening hours productive, artistic, graceful - and the movement of fingers enables conversation.

Where economics fails

John Michael Greer, The Archdruid Report

A major source of mistaken policy toward natural resources is the assumption, enshrined in modern economic theory, that the goods and services provided by nature are subject to the same rules as those provided by human labor. This seems abstract enough, but its impacts are profoundly tangible -- and may well include the financial crisis currently shaking the global economy to its core.
