Ecocidi col Sigillo di Stato
Joseph Parampathu. Originale: How the State Enables Ecocide. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. In questo primo anno di quarantena costante, turbato ovunque da disordini sociali, la tropicalizzazione del clima e l’inettitudine diffusa degli stati, è chiara l’incapacità totale, la riluttanza, delle classi di governo ad operare un qualche cambiamento sostanziale. Nessun aiuto per le persone, nessuna…
How the State Enables Ecocide
In the first year of constant quarantine, rocked by worldwide social unrest, extreme tropical weather, and widespread government ineptitude, the complete inability and unwillingness of the ruling classes to make any substantive changes is clear.

Grow the Grass Roots
Of all the complex environmental problems the world faces today, the elephant in the room is climate change. If current predictions are correct, our posterity faces famine and drought, land loss, natural disasters, political instability and (if the hippies at the Pentagon are correct) increased warfare as resources are strained. So, how do we address the…
Neighborhood Environmentalism: Toward Democratic Energy
As a boy in the southeast African nation of Malawi, William Kamkwamba harnessed the wind.  In 2002, drought and famine — common problems in one of the world’s least-developed countries — forced the boy and his family to forage for food and water as thousands starved. Kamkwamba, however, knew if he could build a windmill…
