Para 2, last sentence — should read “It will be important to work with natural systems in accordance with permaculture principles, rather than in opposition to them as we currently do so comprehensively”?
IT CLAIMS parts of NY, PA, AND VT ARE abnormally dry.
I do hope, Ilargi, that Varoufakis and Tsipras are subscribed to TAE!

Hey, BB: can you tell us your source(s) for that list of species extinction rates? Thanks!
I’m delighted to see the posting rate increased here at TAE, and these Debt Rattles synopses. Thanks!

Michael Hudson talks history on this Extraenvironmentalist podcast. Feudalism comes up quite a bit.
I understand the considerable effort required to do it, but I miss the 2 or 3 times a week commentary by Ilargi and occasionally Stoneleigh in TAE 1. Usually building on some current event(s), I think that approach allows newcomers an easier entry point into the Big Picture. Each analysis, as well as showing relevant quotes, provided a set of links to external articles on related news, for those who wanted to explore the cited reports further.
With TAE 2, I bookmarked TAE Comments -> Main Forum, and seldom venture beyond the comments tagged as New there.
Perhaps TAE 3 can take the form of TAE 1, with comments showing below each post.April 18, 2013 at 7:34 pm in reply to: Nicole Foss In Australia: It's No Use Trying To Build A Better Dinosaur #7445
As well as gradually getting their country homestead in order with her like-minded husband over the past 5 or 6 years, my sister has recently been focusing on ‘inner transition’. And in sharing this, she has been finding some receptive audiences. She has just blogged one of her most concise statements:
Up river from Cornwall, in Brockville, ON, I’ve been tagging articles with similar concerns as ‘coping’:
In response to ted’s questions …
My own decision was to consider my investments and the financial prospects in the broader context of climate change, peak oil, resource depletion, biodiversity loss, etc. Together these pointed me, both ethically and pragmatically, toward a revamped lifestyle with a lighter footprint and fewer dependencies on complex, external systems. This of course is an ongoing process, and my efforts are unique to my case but are perhaps illustrative: I sold my large house with little land in favor of a small house, a big lot and no mortgage debt; sold my car; have been learning to garden and to work with the local food cycle; cashed out my modest other investments in favour of tools and equipment; have been working with a community group focused on relocalization, etc.
The picture I have of receding horizons: oil is an essential input to oil production. On the downslope of the peak oil curve, the next barrel costs more to produce, resulting in a positive feedback on costs and the progressively steeper slope of net energy.
Why don’t you take these issues up directly with the folks at Skeptical Science? Or RealClimate.org?
What’s with all this pimping of DD on TAE? If there’s content there, it should stand on its own.
“And after perhaps a 1000 words of hemming and hawing about various interpretations of that question and what would be needed to answer it, in terms of actual measuring instruments, the authors—220 authors from 62 countries—concluded:”
So let’s just cherry pick a phrase that seems to damage IPCC credibility out of the full context of their reply.
“You KNOW all the experts have been telling us we’re doomed unless we go back to the forests and start eating roots and tubers.”
And let’s add a final nail to the IPCC coffin with a lie.
Yapeen – Could you explain, please, how one cycle links to the next with the dough? According to your notes up top, half the dough has now been used, and half the dough has been returned to the fridge. What are the next steps for the latter? Many thanks.
On January 26, 2012, in Ottawa, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives organized an event titled “The Global Economic Crisis: Can Canada escape a lost decade?” The first session examined perspectives on the crisis and the way forward, and featured Yanis Varoufakis (Department of Economic Sciences, University of Athens) and Stephany Griffith-Jones (Initiative for Policy Dialogue, Columbia University).
Varoufakis considers Canada and Australia to be in a short-term sweet spot.
