Confronting Peak Oil: Building a Sustainable Future

As we approach the end of the age of oil, and the reality of the climate
crisis sinks in, more and more people are beginning to wake up to the fact
that we need to change our ways, and begin building sustainable energy
alternatives.  We'll spend the day exploring those alternatives - people and
projects who are working for change, places that have reduced their carbon
footprint, a national agenda for addressing the crisis, and local
initiatives in the Portland area.

From the website www.underminers.org:

Industrial Civilization is likely to be the last great empire humanity will ever see. If it is allowed to continue in its ravenous way then there is no future for humanity, for the natural systems and processes that allow humans to exist on Earth are the very things that Industrial Civilization is destroying. In fact, no form of civilization has ever been sustainable nor ever will be. In order for humanity to continue on Earth then civilization has to stop, and people allowed to return to a way of living that is connected to the real world.

We are not able to do this. At least not until we become Underminers. The industrial system depends, for its survival, on humans being disconnected from the real world and mentally attached to the machine that we fuel with our civilized lives. The Tools of Disconnection keep us in that state, and the only way to prevent us from being responsible for our demise is to undermine those Tools of Disconnection. Once we are free from the grip of the machine and reconnected with the real world then the myth of Industrial Civilization will die, and humanity will be able to continue.

Underminers is the timely follow-up to Time’s Up! An Uncivilized Solution to a Global Crisis. It takes up where that book left off, with a detailed, highly practical approach to the process of undermining in all its many hues. At once entertaining, shocking and inspiring, Underminers draws on the author’s own experience dealing at first hand with the lies of the industrial machine, and that of a wide range of other people who have their own unique take on the swath of topics covered in the book.

From the reasons we are unable to act, to the nitty-gritty of keeping ourselves and others safe during the undermining process, the first half of the book is an invaluable guide to navigating the industrial system and becoming a fully-formed Underminer. The second half details, with surprising openness how the reader can utilize their abilities and new-found determination to be an effective Underminer; whether that be undermining the advertising industry or the political machine, turning symbolic protestors into real activists, building self-determined communities or simply being ourselves – connected, free human beings.

Charles Eisenstein: "The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible"

program date: 
Fri, 02/14/2014
In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? In his The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible, Charles Eisenstein submits that the old worldview of Separation must fall away, to be replaced by a new worldview of Inter-being, and a radically different understanding of cause and effect. He explores how the more beautiful world becomes possible with the recognition that we are all connected and that our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. Eisenstein is interviewed by host Stephanie Potter as part of KBOO's special programming for Valentine's Day, "For the Love of a Better World."

Thomas Linzey speech at Community Rights PDX anti-GMO campaign event in Portland, Sept. 2013

program date: 
Fri, 10/18/2013
The speaker is one of the main proponents of a growing movement to curtail the "rights" and destructive practices of corporations at a local, grassroots level. Linzey started the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund in Pennsylvania working for clients trying to stop factory hog farms from moving into their area and similar environmental issues. He soon found his work stymied by a structure of law skewed by Constitutional and legal protections for private property and corporations. Out of that has grown a new "community rights" movement to educate people about the real legal and political structures that maintain corporate dominance as well as crafting local ordinances and ballot intitiatives to curtail corporate power.
