One day fossil fuels will run out


"One day fossil fuels will run out .... the only imponderable is, when it will happen. "http://buff.ly/1groBG8 #estoleads

"Oil, coal and gas at 2006 rates, ... will last a further 40, 200 and 70 years, respectively."http://buff.ly/1grpQoI #estoleads

Our future energy will come from sun and wind.

We face 100 years of unprecedented dislocations due to weather and the collapse of the oil economy.

As in the past, small local communities will mark the genesis of new forms of society and economy.

Cybercommunities are an effort to imagine a future that can survive the collapse of the oil economy.

Cybercommunities are car-free.

Cybecommunities have a population of up to 10,000.

Cybercommunities are no more than four levels and no more than a mile across.

Cybercommunities can evolve from present neighborhoods.

Cybercommunities can be built from scratch.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
