WELCOME

http://www.andygonsalves.com

Like the canary in the coal mine, we’ve got a message—our global society is on the precipice of a major change.  Due to peak oil and climate change it is necessary for us to rethink, re-imagine and redefine our lifestyles.

Our objective is to share what we have already learned (and continue to learn) with our family, friends, and the wider eco-conscious community in the hopes that all of our foibles and discoveries will give our readers a little bit of a head start in their own journeys to sustainability.

If this is the first you’ve heard of peak oil or climate change, or you’d like to know more, you are in the right place.  We’ll do our best to explain things and point out valuable resources (documentaries, books, websites, and personal antidotes of our experiences etc.)  so you can make up your own mind.

A good place to start is our Video Glossary. Here you’ll find concepts explained visually in three minutes or less.  Once you understand the basics, get more eye-opening information with EcoCanary’s Top Five Docufilms. This link will take you to our list of the best five feature-length documentaries we’ve found so far.

What does sustainability mean to us?

  • We recognize that change is coming and we aren’t content to wait for the government or the private sector to find solutions for us.  We would rather proactively make a difference for ourselves and within our sphere of influence.
  • We are prepared to study, experiment, and ultimately incorporate what we learn into our daily actions with the goal of creating a more practical and sustainable way of living.
  • This means we will learn to meet all our basic needs (food, water, shelter, energy,  etc.) in a sustainable fashion, minimize our negative  environmental impact and join with others who are doing the same.

All Our Best,

April, Alberto & Lola

 

For the Skeptics:
We realize that not everyone shares our point of view, but guess what, it turns out the debate as to whether climate change is real, caused by humans, etc. is moot.  Find out why:  What’s the worse that could happen?
