Norway and Jordan Sign Agreement to Make Sahara Forest Project Oasis a Reality

Norway and Jordan Sign Agreement to Make Sahara Forest Project Oasis a Reality | Permaculture Design | Scoop.it
Way back in 2008, we reported on a proposal for the Sahara Forest Project, an incredible sustainable solution to resource scarcity that would turn the Sahara Desert into a source for food, water, and energy. If you thought the idea was too good to be true, think again.

Canada-China investment treaty to come into force Oct. 1

Canada-China investment treaty to come into force Oct. 1 | Permaculture Design | Scoop.it
Ottawa confirms it has ratified a foreign investment treaty with China, more than two years after the controversial agreement was signed, as CBC News first reported Friday.
P3 Permaculture's insight:

The Harper government went behind our back and SIGNED FIPA!!!!!

 

This is an act that allows china to sue canada if we as a country decide to change environmental laws that would hinder their profit!

 

So if we try to stop the pollution of our water, air, anything and it costs china, they can now sue us as !

 

this is too far!

Re-thinking our ‘built to fail’ society

Re-thinking our ‘built to fail’ society | Permaculture Design | Scoop.it
In-built obsolescence may seem a forgivable quirk of the modern technology many of us love, but it has a force of its own, placing us on a wheel of consumer slavery. But there is another way, writes Lucy Purdy
P3 Permaculture's insight:

In this time of great change in the world! we need to rethink consumption and business!

 

Business of the future need to be dynamic and adaptable so as to shift to a greater goal or product when a niche in human needs has been filled. 

 

Changing from static single item or service business will facilitate the letting go of this need for buying the product over and over. 

 

Designing products so that they are deconstructable, a bette phone, that uses less battery and is less toxic, or has no harmful radiation is a good thing but only when the item it replaces can be deconstructed completely and returned to the cycle of production.

 

P3 Permaculture is in such a mode of restructuring where we are designing a Ecosystem of enterprises interconnected businesses that utilise wastes and resources in an efficient way.

 

Once we all know what Ecological design is then the business can shift to implementing this in the ground for our present and future. 

 

Once the micro scale has been achieved then we begin redesigning and designing whole cities and global infrastructure. 

 

Imagine if you had to go back to elementary every 10 years because there is a new model of education. 

 

we are trapped in a consumer slavery that needs to be broken so we can grow beyond this as a globally united species of earth!

Stop FIPA - Leadnow

Stop FIPA - Leadnow | Permaculture Design | Scoop.it
At any time, PM Harper could pass a sweeping investment deal (FIPA) allowing China's state-owned companies to sue Canadian governments in secret tribunals. Click here to stop the secretive and extreme FIPA deal before it’s too late - http://leadnow.ca/stop-fipa
P3 Permaculture's insight:

Lets flood the phones of our MP's and Harper's Office

Emergency Phone Call Action to Stop FIPA 


1. Decide who to call. You can find your MP, and their phone number, here:

http://www.parl.gc.ca/Parlinfo/Compilations/HouseofCommons/MemberByPostalCode.aspx?Menu=HOC&PostalCode=h2k3x3

If you live in a riding with a Conservative MP, please call your MP. You can try their Ottawa number or their constituency office, as many MPs are back in their ridings today.

If you're not in a riding with a Conservative MP, please call one of these key cabinet members:

Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade: 613-995-0183
Jason Kenney, Minister of Employment and Social Development: 613-992-2235
Peter MacKay, Minister of Justice & Attorney General of Canada: 613-992-6022
John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs: 613-996-0984
Peter Van Loan, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons: 613-996-7752
Stephen Harper, Prime Minister: 613-992-4211

(Note, if you can’t call long distance, you can also call the Parliament Toll Free number at 1-866-599-4999 and ask to be transferred.)


2. Make the call. Introduce yourself, and tell them you want them to stop the Canada-China FIPA investor deal. You can use the following points if you like:

I’m calling about the Canada-China investors deal, FIPA. I’ve heard Prime Minister Harper is about to pass it.I am concerned about the deal. If FIPA passes, China’s companies can take over Canadian resources and then sue Canadian governments in secret if the government does anything that threatens the company’s profits.The Hupacasath First Nation still have a legal challenge ongoing against FIPA, and the court has not yet released its decision. If Harper passes FIPA while the court case is ongoing that would be deeply disrespectful of Canada’s courts.I want you to make sure Harper does not pass FIPA

First Earth | Film

First Earth | Film | Permaculture Design | Scoop.it

FIRST EARTH is a documentary about the movement towards a massive paradigm shift for shelter -- building healthy houses in the old ways, out of the very earth itself, and living together like in the old days, by recreating villages.


 FIRST EARTH makes the case that earthen homes are the healthiest housing in the world; and that since it still takes a village to raise a healthy child, it is incumbent upon us to transform our suburban sprawl into eco-villages, a new North American dream


P3 Permaculture's insight:

We need to live in structures that are conducive to life! biodegradable, non toxic, detoxifying, inspiring, breathable, naturally mold resistant, warm, ventilated, efficient, water wise, naturally lighted, living buildings that as any natural being returns to the cycles of life naturally and do not contaminate our earth and our lives!
