Why a blog?

But why a blog on this topic? Well, in the wise words of Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, “silence is the enemy“. We need to be discussing and sharing best practices for moving ourselves as North American citizens (note I did not say “consumers”) towards sustainability.

One group doing an outstanding group of presenting calm, fact-based discussion on these topics is Future Scenarios. It’s a website/book created by David Holmgren, the co-originator of the permaculture concept. Worthwhile.
