The link between economics and the environment could not be more crucial for our understanding. We must focus on our use of resources and it’s affects on ecology. As Farley says "You can't make something from nothing."

This guy says so many important things it’s impossible to sum it up, really. Everyone should put in the 16 minutes to listen to him. It is chock full as he speaks fast, but very clearly in layman's terms. Brilliant. Thanks, jph.

Yes, I was very happy to find this, and please do follow the links around him, as he is tied into the Post Carbon Institute and the whole Relocalize initative, to work on shifting from mega-global corporate dependency in service of the 1% usurs, to interconnected local-community resiliency,. . i.e. the solution to the worlds major issues!
