Sorry! This was supposed to be a ‘Page’ – I’ll leave both in place for the moment as a page can’t be tagged or categorised.
I wrote about some of the key concepts and Joanna Macy’s the ‘Great Turning’ under the ‘About’ page here but a series of links led me today to this 2006 article about ‘Peak Oil in North Korea and Cuba’ – two countries with ‘at first glance similar?’ ‘left-wing’ regimes that for different reasons experienced something like ‘peak oil’ in the 1990’s. They followed very different strategies with disastrous and favourable consequences – but which failed and which succeeded and what lessons might be learned?
To find out more, read that article from ‘Yes’ magazine here (new window). Trevor
(PS. Another 2006 article by Joanna Macy in ‘Yes’ magazine about the Great Turning is well worth reading).
