Environmentalism and Pagan Religion

By Gus diZerega

[Snip] The greatest conflict between most thoughtful Pagans and modern society is our relationship with the other-than-human world. The reason is simple.

Modern society limits the moral universe to other human beings. A tiny fringe suggests expanding moral standing to include the “right kinds” of animals. Everything else is a tool for . . . → Read More: Environmentalism and Pagan Religion

Permaculture and Industrial Messes

By Selina Rifkin

Permaculture goes beyond the idea of sustainability into what can we do to add health and vitality to the Earth. It is not enough to sustain, we must do more than just get by if we are to have a relationship with life on our planet. Relationships don’t thrive on ‘sustainable.’

On Green Urban Living

By Lupa

A few years ago I wrote about sustainable urban living. Three and a half years later, it’s still a pretty big ideal of mine.

The whole Druids-trees thing is undoubtedly my favourite available Druid cliché. I don’t do white robes, am notably lacking in the beard department and am very seldom at Stonehenge, but trees, absolutely. Any chance I get. One of the problems with the last few years of boat life, is that trees have . . . → Read More: The Thing About Trees

The Religious Implications of Peak Oil

By Sarenth Odinsson

[Snip] Peak Oil is a term that means that we have hit the peak of oil production which can meet global demand for it. Simply put, a peak occurs when demand outstrips production.

Invasives: Enemies or Allies?

By Alison Leigh Lilly

[Snip] When I first moved to Seattle, I was enchanted by this lovely plant. Modestly nondescript during the first few wintery, rainy months I’d spent in the city, this evergreen shrub suddenly revealed itself with the warming spring weather, a fresh reminder of bright summery days to come. It seemed to . . . → Read More: Invasives: Enemies or Allies?

No, I Will Not Take Cakes and Ale from Your Styrofoam Cup

By Shauna Aura Knight

If activism is about standing up, then I’m pulling out my soap box and standing on it. Sometimes activism is holding boundaries and saying no. If you offer me cakes and ale in a plastic, Styrofoam, or otherwise disposable cup, I will not take it.

No.
