Earth at Risk

I just got back from the great Earth at Risk event in Berkeley, California. Speakers included Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith, Stephanie McMillan, Thomas Linzey, myself, Waziyatawin, and Arundhati Roy.

The 700 person venue was packed with a very enthusiastic audience and there were another 4000 people watching the livestream online. Audio from the event is available now.

Video is being prepared for distribution right now. I'll post when I know more.

Occupy Oakland addresses

This past weekend, Waziyatawin, Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith, and I addressed a crowd of a few hundred at Occupy Oakland. You can view video of the event online:

You can also read the original text of my talk (which differs slightly from the video) below the break.


In the Wake archive now online

Back by popular demand, I've posted the archive of my old In the Wake website to The site is a collection of interviews, analysis, and how-tos about peak oil, climate change, collapse, and related subjects.

It hasn't been updated in a few years and no updates are planned, but people keep emailing to ask for it. So there you go.

If you want you can go straight to the Tools for Gridcrash booklet.
