God on Lawns

Someone sent the following conversation through to me. It’s a must read. I love how comedy can cut through nonsense. God: Frank, you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there on the planet? What happened to the dandelions, violets, milkweeds and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand […]

Confessions of An ‘Economic Hitman’, and Other Animations

With words taken from a Democracy Now Interview with John Perkins, a self-styled ‘Economic Hitman’, the studioJOHO crew have made a very cool animation to showcase the fantastic services we the wealthy offer two-thirds world countries. Watching this led me to check out other work from these video magicians – excellent stuff to watch and share so as to educate all those who struggle to read but who still need […]

Geoff in Early Observation Mode

Here’s a photo of a famous Permaculture person. Can you guess who it is? He was photographed with this shovel back in 1956 at the age of two. He is wearing a child restraint belt usually attached to a long cord as was customary in those days to prevent him from running away to play in the dirt. But he did run away to Australia.

Cracking Codes

Click for full view Courtesy: Marc Roberts Whilst the Russians learn to live without buckwheat and displaced people are poised for land-struggles in Central Africa, boffins crack the wheat genome, which promises to keep us trying the same industrial scale thing for ever. And how will we fuel this ever expanding industrial agriculture sector? Hmm, maybe. BAA propose to compost food waste – who’d have thunk it?

Power Trip

Click for full view Courtesy: Marc Roberts The UK Gov’t backtracks on cast iron commitments to environmental performance standards to make space for more dirty coal. I can’t help thinking it’s a sweetener to bring the big energy companies on board for the stalled nuclear programme. Investors won’t commit unless the taxpayer guarantees their profits and underwrites the decommissioning costs. Public debt for private profit, without so much as a […]
