Give me that doom time religion | Peak Oil News and Message Boards | America's Collapse | Scoop.it
I don't usually think of people interested in peak oil, climate change and economic collapse as particularly religious. “Spiritual” maybe — Sufi dancing and Lakota Vision Quests are OK and agnosticism is better.

This is why America is collapsing; UN=communism=oneworldorder. Do they know what the Boston Tea Party was? Can they even point to Boston, MA on a map?

Generally speaking, we're finally living in the world of peak oil. Or call it plateaued oil if you like, since we seem to have hit a rough plateau in oil production that's likely to continue for quite a while.

Helen Clark: Putting Resilience at the Heart of the Development Agenda | UNDP

Helen Clark: Putting Resilience at the Heart of the Development Agenda | UNDP | America's Collapse | Scoop.it

"At UNDP, we see development challenges in the 21st Century as different in nature, scale, and scope from those of the past. If our world is to be one in which poverty is eradicated, and inequality reduced; and where growth is inclusive and production and consumption do not break planetary boundaries; and if we are to be effective in combating the effects of climate change; we need to look beyond our traditional interventionist logic to harness the agency of people, their communities, and institutions. It is this logic which has led UNDP to encapsulate its mission statement in the simple phrase: Empowered Lives, Resilient Nations. This speaks to both means and ends. Empowered people can build resilient nations."

 

Excellent speech by UNDP Administrator Helen Clark although she has yet to break free from the growth obsession.

Rio+20 - Furthering Sustainable Development or Economic Growth?

Rio+20 - Furthering Sustainable Development or Economic Growth? | America's Collapse | Scoop.it
Overall, despite the noble agendas of the Rio Declaration and Agenda 21, the sustainable development agenda has come up against major global challenges. The most notable of these is globalisation.

The consequences of globalisation - as a result of ever expanding production and consumption - have not only resulted in devastating destruction of the environment, which include air, water and soil pollution, but has also led to the commodification of the natural commons and public environmental goods and services. In other words, these resources and services have been made a tradable "product" for profit.

 

And we (the U.S.) stands at the head of the line of obstructionists.
