What do you think about the future? Is peak oil going to arrive? Is Nature going to torment us with natural disasters and human plagues? Or will we experience a planetary awakening?
After a brief introduction, Jay engages the class in an activity to see where students align with possible future scenarios: (1) planetary collapse, (2) transition to stability using permaculture, (3) transition to sustainability using green technology while continuing to embrace the growth paradigm, (4) techno-spiritual fantasy of increasing our population to populate space and the moon, aliens are going to come and save us, we will have a planetary awakening, etc. At the end of the lesson, Jay encourages students to try an activity with a neighbor.
