Here are the slides from the Becoming Green workshop at VHUMC.
Here are some other resources for those who want to delve a little deeper:
- Our page on peak oil
- The Oil Drum – hangout for truly well-informed “peakists”
- Energy Bulletin – meticulously organized compendium for all things related to energy depletion and climate change
- Our page on population
- Dr. Albert Bartlett’s classic lecture on exponential growth and overpopulation. You really need to hear this.
Theological Perspectives on Becoming Green
- Restoring Eden – very self-promotional – theological perspectives on caring for creation
- Bill Moyers – Is God Green?
- Barbara Kingsolver – Animal, Vegetable, Miracle – is there any better writer than Kingsolver? Engaging, entertaining (sometimes hilarious), and informative description of the twisted system in which we live and one family’s sane and human response to it
- Jim Kunstler – The Long Emergency – warning: not for the faint of heart
- Thom Hartmann – The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight – begins with a conventional description of peak oil and climate change and then plunges into a totally unexpected journey through the nature of culture
- Richard Heinberg – The Party’s Over: Oil, War, and the Fate of Industrial Societies – his seminal work on peak oil
- Elizabeth Kolbert – Field Notes from a Catastrophe – meticulously researched study of catastrophic climate change and the human contribution to it
