I noticed a reference a few weeks ago to Thom Hartmann's book, The Last Hours of. Ancient Sunlight, and I just finished reading it. It is a very good summary of.

Here's a Gore vidal quote used in the book: "Think of the earth as a living organism that is being attacked by billions of bacteria whose numbers double every forty years. We can realize that we ARE nature, and that viewpoint will dictate how we treat our environment.

When we see ourselves as "separate" from nature, we think of nature as a resource to be exploited. Our economic system based on infinite growth has run into the limits of the physical world. Now that our social systems must rapidly adapt to a new reality of energy scarcity, we must pay special attention to the humans within those systems.

Representing the world as varying forms of ancient sunlight is a powerful analogy that can introduce even the most encapsulated thinkers to holistic systems thinking. It reminded me of the idea that innovation can either be built on success of the past or borrowed from the future. Hartmann provides all the facts and figures necessary to demonstrate that the majority of our current lifestyle is dependent on the ancient sunlight of the past, stored in dense forms like oil and coal.

Our depletion of this resource has borrowed even the most basic support systems from the future. Yet, how can we be in a situation that is so dire yet everything looks so good? Ancient Sunlight explains that our modern industrial civilization is living off its startup capital, like a company that is building a lavish office without pushing a sustainable business model.

The severity of this situation cannot be iterated enough. An example is in human slavery, the dense form of energy we have now gives us access to hundreds of energy slaves that can drive our cars and light our houses, without this it would take many humans to do equivalent work.

Coupled with collapses in biodiversity, water shortages, widespread desertification because of climate changes, and massive cutbacks in forest cover are presenting our species with a decade of significant change afoot. Analyzing how we got here is a useful way to build a model for the future.

The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight: Waking Up to Personal and Global Transformation

By looking at historical examples of global cultures Ancient Sunlight draws a distinction between Younger Cultures and Older Cultures. Hartmann explains how younger cultures are warlike, agressive and obsessed with superiority while older cultures are filled with respect, integration and conservation.

The younger culture is a culture of control, gaining power through its current incarnations with the powerful drugs of television and general entertainment, just two of the things that completely disconnect us from our natural environment and our birthright as humans. Hartmann provides an all encompassing look at the stories we tell ourselves about our culture, i. Constrast these examples with the older culture stories, i. Much of this comes from our view that natives were lazy and stupid, falsehoods that are overturned by even a cursory study of the accounts from ethnographers, whether of brilliant pharmacological solutions to illness in the site or of the technology of the!

Kung tribes which allowed them to work less than 20 hours a week. Cooperation is revealed as the basis for a new paradigm, a better society encompassed by this statement from Dwight D.
