Nuclear River of Money

Yes, I admit, we folks here at Chelsea Green have a certain crazy love for all things “green” and renewable. A bevvy of us ride our bicycles to work every day, we have a worm bin under the kitchenette sink, we print any book we can on post-consumer recycled paper, and you won’t find an incandescent bulb within shouting distance of our offices. So given our profound love of sustainability, clean energy, and progress, you can understand why some of us are upset over McCain’s recent support for the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act, which funnels money away from clean energy (wind/solar) and pours it into the nuclear industry. This is precisely the moment we need to invest in solar, wind, tidal, geothermal and other clean energy technologies, not direct money away from it.

Imagination, Purpose & Flexibility: Creating an Independent Farmstead – Q&A (part 1)

Twenty years ago, the land that authors Shawn and Beth Dougherty purchased and have come to name the Sow’s Ear was deemed “not suitable for agriculture” by the state of Ohio. Today, their family raises and grows 90% of their own food. Such self-sufficiency is largely the result of basing their farming practices around intensive […] Read More

Using Permaculture Principles to Design Resilient Cities

The Permaculture City begins in the garden but takes what we have learned there and applies it to a much broader range of human experience; we’re not just gardening plants but people, neighborhoods, and even cultures.
