After more than three decades, the public is finally beginning to grasp what a serious threat global warming poses. Whats missing from the climate conversation now is a plausible narrative about how we might parry this threat. Drawing on ideas from his recently published book, Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work, Robert Frank explains why our ability to tap the prodigious power of behavioral contagion may make the path forward less daunting than many think. Recorded on 1/27/2020. [3/2020] [Show ID: 35561]
Robert H. Frank is the Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and Professor of Economics at Cornell's Johnson Graduate School of Management. For more than a decade, his "Economic View" column appeared monthly in The New York Times.

Climate change denial draws headlines. But is it actually an obstacle to climate action?
A great majority of Americans say they're concerned about climate change.
The real roadblock is our unwillingness to pay money to help stop climate change.

Watch their full talk here: http://bit.ly/2lTHbh5 Extraordinary award-winning poets, performance activists and cultural architects Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman of Climbing PoeTree explore the network of mutuality that binds our existence through the ricochet of oppression and the reciprocity of liberation. Their art is a tool for catalyzing action, cross-pollinating solutions, getting at the root of our most pressing social and ecological issues, and reminding us that we all belong to each other. This speech was given at the 2016 National Bioneers Conference. Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges.

The mission of Sustainable Human is to assist in creating and promoting a new economic system based on the collective voluntary gifts of everyday people. The goal is to transition from our current, scarcity-based economic system to a new system capable of creating abundance for all. Bypassing the monetary system, we will voluntarily collaborate on projects aimed at creating goods and services that are given freely to the world, helping to create a bottom-up, participatory, global gift economy.
After 7+ years of holding space for a conversation about the deep underlying roots of our many sustainability-related crises, the time has come to be more proactive towards a solution.
We recognize at the very root of many of our systemic issues is an economic system that measures progress and success in only one metric - growth or profit. Economic growth means consuming more resources each year than were consumed in the prior year, which means that more of Nature must be turned into product for human consumption. The scale has reached ecocidal proportions.
At the same time, fewer people are able to meet their needs from the present economic system as wealth inequality only continues to grow. Complicating matters is the fact that technology is rapidly replacing human workers in a variety of ways in both the virtual and creative markets. The idea of income being attached to work is coming undone.
We need a new economy and it is going to be up to each of us to co-create one.
Sustainable Human is creating a new, voluntary, global gift economy called the Sustainable Human Gift Economy Network (powered by Hylo - an emerging, open-source social network designed to help communities to collaborate). Its purpose is to transcend the economics of scarcity and transition humanity into the economy capable of delivering sustainable abundance for all.
The idea is simple.
We all have a gift to give. When we work together in sharing our gifts, we are able to accomplish amazing achievements. However, most ideas we create are limited by the need to make a profit. No longer.
Now we can voluntarily work together using our unique gifts and skills to create anything we want and give it freely to the world. As more people decide to join the gift economy, the size and scope of the gifts will grow to a point where people will be able to meet some of their needs through this economy, reducing the need for us to participate in the life-destroying, soul-crushing, industrial, growth economy.

When Sarah van Gelder got together with a few friends in 1996 to start a magazine about hopeful news and positive actions, it was, to say the least, a total leap of faith. It was one of these beautiful endeavors that begin in one’s garage when no one really knows how it’s all going to pan out into the big world. Sarah simply didn’t see anything better to do with her creative skills. Twenty years later and with a run of 50,000 copies per issue, YES! Magazine has established itself as an indispensable and hope-infusing read for a growing segment of the progressive-minded population of this country, people who simply refuse to cave under the barrage of depressive and disempowering negativity propagated by most of the commercial media.
The Call of the Mountain: Arne Naess and the Deep Ecology Movement :

Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 1997 | Story Teller's Country: Netherlands

Arne Dekke Eide Næss was a Norwegian philosopher who coined the term "deep ecology" and was an important intellectual and inspirational figure within the environmental movement of the late twentieth century. Næss cited Rachel Carson's 1962 book Silent Spring as being a key influence in his vision of deep ecology.(Foundation for Deep Ecology here).
This is a five-minute video introducing the difference between deep ecology and shallow ecology in Environmental Ethics. It covers the basic principles of deep ecology including the need for a radical shift in our attitude toward the natural environment. The eight principles of deep ecology are enumerated and clear.

How can we tackle the main challenges of our time: the economy in the short-term, life satisfaction in the mid-term, and environment in the long-term? Matthieu Ricard is a Buddhist monk and public thinker whose powerful message has influenced major economists such as Dennis Snower, Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz and George Soros. He has taken his simple, yet radical message to Davos and the United Nations, and now visits the RSA to make a robust case for cultivating altruistic love and compassion as the best means for benefitting society – and ourselves. It seems so simple, but why is it so hard to implement this ancient solution to both our personal and global 21st century predicaments?
