Or, Can We Be Interesting AND Useful?
I Love the EU concepts and work. I’ve written about it, talked about it, done radio about it, my book is partly about it. It’s a big part of my work and worldly concepts, and was before I heard of EU (because of my macrobiotic/energetic training).
Now the “but.”
Is there any work being done on anything immediately practical like:
1. Energy. We’re in a world-wide oil drainage system, and it’s not going to be put back. For all the lovely stuff I’ve read over 8 years of interacting with the EU, I’ve occasionally seen a hint of an idea of better energy from electrical fusion models, but never seen anything concrete… Peak oil is the idea that we built this long 20th Century on what was cheap and energy dense. We’re also running low, back to coal, and with 7+billion people, we don’t have the infrastructure to run a world that way…
2. Fukushima. Or, nuclear waste. See above. Huge problem. I’ve occasionally seen EU musings about the possibility of managing decaying nuclear cores electrically… but anybody actually doing anything for it?
I’d be grateful for your responses.
These to me are the most important issues of the day. Saturn cosmology is damned interesting – but it won’t stop oil run down. Can EU make some room for practical solutions to today’s problems?
