Europe's Affluence Out On a Limb [an American's letter from Europe]
by Jan Lundberg   
27 July 2012
ImageThe time for a revolution of a deeper sort comes when the imbalance of unequal sharing of the land and its resources reaches the ultimate crisis point. People don't want to contemplate this, but at least the unprecedented socioeconomic disintegration ahead will be the portal to achieving real sustainability.

This will occur despite any redistribution of present wealth through compassionate reforms or wrenching de-classism. For the hour is too late ecologically. This applies to the entire modern industrialized world.

The 2012/Aliens/Consciousness Movement: a potential New-Age Tea Party?
by Jan Lundberg   
29 May 2012
Image I'm gaga for Gaia, which I don't expect many modern consumers to relate to. So it's harder for me to point a finger at anyone believing in scientifically unproven ideas. But I draw a line between spiritual experiences and claims such as "aliens are among us and are here to raise humanity's consciousness because it's 2012."

Such were my biases when I covered the New Living Expo in San Francisco, Calif., April 27-29 this year at the massive Concourse Exhibition Center.

The Deplorax or: The Lorax Goes Hollywood (poem)
by Gar Smith   
07 March 2012
ImageGar Smith, environmental journalist, amused us with "My review of The Lorax (with apologies to Dr. Seuss)"

My name is the Lorax and I speak for the trees.
So how'd I get sucked up in Hollywood sleaze?
My message was lost in the Stremulous Stream!
Even Swomee-swans told me to "Get with the Team!"

The Grinch (who stole Christmas) got all the attention
Why TV? Why Movies? Why all this Big Mention?
Because he's defeated, so Whos can start shopping!
But me? I'm ignored because I'd stop chopping.
