HOUSING RECLAIMED: SUSTAINABLE HOMES FOR NEXT TO NOTHING

The American Dream of owning your own home has shattered on the shoals of the economic crisis that started in 2008. While it has become much harder harder to achieve this dream, there is a surge of interest in finding resourceful, affordable and environmentally friendly ways of creating housing to meet this challenge.

Maude Barlow – Not a Drop to Drink

Maude Barlow – Not a Drop to Drink (lecture)

Many know Coleridge’s “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” and its famous “Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink.” Perhaps less known is Mark Twain’s, “Whiskey’s for drinking, water’s for fighting.” Today, the UN warns, “Too often, where we need water, we find guns. As the global economy grows, so will its thirst. Many more conflicts lie over the horizon.” Once empires were fueled by spices, the fur trade, silver, gold, and ivory, and in recent decades it’s been all about oil. Now, water is seen by corporations as the next big thing. This precious resource is being rapidly commodified. Instead of being humankind’s common heritage and right it’s becoming the private property of giant multinational conglomerates.

Short Description: 
Yes, there really is a vast conservative conspiracy. Abe and Joe look at ALEC.

 In the early 1970s, a group of conservative lawmakers and businesspeople realized that synchronicity between the governments of different states was the path to ideological supremacy. The American Legislative Exchange Council -- ALEC -- was born. The group "assists" state legislators -- many of whom constitute ALEC's membership -- to draft legislation that downsizes government, removes corporate regulations, and makes it harder to hold wealthy miscreants to account.

THE FUTURE IS NOT ALL DOOMED - A Conversation with Carl Safina

In this age of climate change, species extinction and exponentially expanding human population, it's hard not to feel like we're doomed. So it's important that we find voices to listen to that offer some glimmers of hope. On this episode of Locus Focus we are joined again by writer and marine conservationist Carl Safina, who has witnessed as well as anyone, how much damage results from too many humans obsessed with using up every ounce of our planet's natural resources without concern for future generations. Yet Safina remains a voice of hope as he searches for examples of what is working. His writing offers models for how we can re-orient our values, visions and practices of living on the earth like we are part of its natural systems.
