Honest Coverage and Commentary in Copenhagen - Follow Albert Bates
by Jan Lundberg   
06 December 2009
ImageAlbert Bates, well known to Culture Change readers, is in Copenhagen for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). His daily blog is probably the most reliable source of news and analysis because of his personal, philosophical balance. And, he wrote Climate in Crisis in 1990 with a foreword by Al Gore.

Day 2 (excerpt): Klimabundmode is dansk for “Climate Bottom Meeting”

Defense of Climate-Change Consensus Continues
by Jan Lundberg   
05 December 2009
The latest mainstream media coverage on Climate Changegate might indicate at first glance that the scientific research might have been hopelessly compromised. Millions of people saw this widely syndicated headline: "UK University to probe integrity of climate data" (Associated Press, Dec. 3, London)

The East Anglia University's Climatic Research Unit has been embarrassed and attacked after leaked emails showed its head, Phil Jones, discussing strategy to deal with fossil-fuel industry-funded climate-science skeptics.

Climate Changegate: Setting the Record Straight
by Michael Poremba and Jan Lundberg   
30 November 2009
Editor's note: Climate-change deniers and those not familiar with climate science are spreading confusion lately, or they are getting extra confused. For this to happen there's a germ of truth, with assistance from minor management mistakes in academia. Basic truth is now under fire, ignoring that global carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels in 2008 were nearly 40% higher than those in 1990. The following report by Michael Poremba, long-time San Francisco peak-oil and climate-change activist, clarifies the climate change picture that is unchanged. Then I comment on technofix-bound climate scientists and Al Gore's latest book. - JL
Day Seven: Wild Thanksgiving and Final Thoughts
by "Wild Girl" Rebecca Lerner   
28 November 2009
ImageTogether, my forager friends and I spent five hours preparing our wild Thanksgiving feast. We sipped lemonbalm tea as we worked, crafting a colorful spread of nourishing foods that were totally local, money-free, and produced 100% compostable waste. Most impressively, our dinner actually tasted good!
Day Six: The Challenge of Palatability
by "Wild Girl" Rebecca Lerner   
26 November 2009
ImageIdentifying, locating and gathering enough wild edibles is only half the challenge of eating them. Figuring out how to process them efficiently and then prepare them in a way that makes them palatable has been an interesting quest. As a people, our civilization has lost so much knowledge about how to live off the land directly that there doesn’t seem to be any information on how to do it. There are books with recipes that include wild food, but it is very rare to come across a recipe that is 100% wild.
Day Five: Oyster mushrooms, the wapato shimmy and a vision
by "Wild Girl" Rebecca Lerner   
25 November 2009
Image Off to dance in the cold waters of a marsh, myself and eight friends piled into a big van and set out on our quest for wapato. Also known as Indian swamp potato or arrowhead, for its arrow-shaped leaves, wapato is a bulb-shaped root vegetable that grows underwater in wet mud.

Conditions seemed almost preternaturally accommodating. Though it is duck-hunting season, Culture Change publisher Jan Lundberg easily secured a permit for our harvest at the last minute. We just happened to pick a day closed to hunters.
