Beyond “How to Save the World”


Published on Oct 21, 2015

When Dave Pollard started his blog “How to Save the World” over a decade ago, he believed he might actually play a role in changing the world. After studying the three major systems of civilization — energy & resources, ecology, and economy — he finds all three unsustainable and out of control. Rather than trying to prevent the end of industrial growth civilization, Dave suggests four things we can do. Live a joyful life, while acting sustainably. Learn essential skills our grandparents knew — growing food organically, sewing clothing, fixing things, and mentoring young people in how to learn. Learn to live in community, where “we’ll have to live with and maybe even love people we don’t particularly like. That’s what people do in community.” Episode 296. []
