ECOSHOCK —Walking Away From Empire
Only economic collapse can save the biosphere? Author of “Walking Away From Empire”, Professor Emeritus Guy McPherson left University of Arizona to go off-grid in New Mexico, in a community-based alternative lifestyle. With clips from new film.
They called him crazy when he left a tenured position teaching biology and ecology at the University of Arizona.
Guy McPherson says the environment is being ruined to the point of extinction, while energy for our insane lifestyles is running out.
Seeking a better way, Guy blogs about his efforts at a decent sustainable life in New Mexico, at “Nature Bats Last” (http://www.guymcpherson.com)
We cover everything from the collapsing world economy, alternative energy and food growing, to his certainty that only a community built on “agrarian anarchy” can survive the coming Great Depression and climate collapse.
Guy has inspired many seekers, gives tours and lectures across the country. A film due out this fall features McPherson: “Somewhere In New Mexico Before the End of Time” (find trailers on You tube or Indiegogo).
Is total economic collapse the only solution? The only way to save the species, including ourselves, while forming new ways of living and self-government? Visit Radio Ecoshock here.
