Colonization in Space (Climate State Music Video)

Published on May 26, 2017

Space colonization (also called space settlement, or extraterrestrial colonization) is permanent human habitation off the planet Earth.

An energetic psytrance song, composed around 2013. What if we have to consider space as an option, because climate becomes too disruptive? Related: Stephen Hawking says we must colonise other planets to ensure human survival http://www.independent.co.uk/news/sci…

Wendell Berry | Agriculture for a Small Planet Symposium July 1, 1974

The Berry Center

Published on Jul 1, 2014

Today marks the 40th Anniversary of Wendell Berry’s speech about the culture of agriculture that was delivered at the “Agriculture for a Small Planet” Symposium in Spokane, Washington. The first few lines of this speech, written on a yellow legal pad in route to the symposium, inspired his book The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture published in 1977. Berry’s speech was also a catalyst for the launch of the Tilth Movement in the Pacific Northwest.

“Your symposium, as well as a lot of other meetings I’ve been to in other parts of the country, proves the literature of a thoughtful and even known constituency for a better kind of agriculture,” wrote Berry in a letter to Gigi Coe and Bob Stilger following the Symposium (July 4, 1974).

In the folklore of the Anishinaabe peoples of North America, the Prophecy of the Seventh Fire predicts that there will come a time when we must choose between two paths. One path will be green and lush. The other will be well worn but scorched, and walking it will cut our feet.

Winona LaDuke—activist, community economist, author, and member of the Ojibwe Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples—says that now is that time. During last year’s Standing Rock protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, LaDuke called for us to make the right choice. In a message to the Water Protectors she said, “We are not just fighting against something, but clearly and decidedly walking with open eyes and hearts down the path that is green.”

For more than twenty-five years Winona LaDuke has been a leading advocate and organizer for Native American groups working to recover their ancestral lands, natural resources, and cultures.

As a young Harvard graduate she moved to her family’s home on the White Earth Reservation in upper Minnesota, where she created a community land trust organization to re-gather traditional lands lost to private ownership. She stands as one of the most important spokespersons for a fair land reform that includes equity in buildings (not in land value) for those using the land. She described this work in her 1993 Schumacher Lecture “Voices From White Earth: Gaa-waabaabiganikaag.”
