Lecture 07 – Fundamentals: Restricted Access


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.
