  • A Talk in the Park

    I gave a talk about the Security and Sustainability Guide at an Earth Day celebration in April. This clip starts mid-sentence. I had just said something about work that Anika Savage and I did in a field we entitled "anticipatory leadership". The Security and Sustainability Guide’s mission is to provide decision-makers and activists with valid information they can use to develop foresight in this mile-a-second age we call the Anthropocene. Anyway, here's the talk on YouTube. KC Schulberg (right), the Collier County Waterkeeper introduces me on stage at the Save Our Planet Earth Day event in Cambia Park in Naples, FL on April 23rd, 2022.

  • Action Skills for Radical Democratic Organizations: A Learning Agenda for the Metroville Artists Org

    This is my doctoral dissertation. It’s long, but its saving grace is that it probes and describes the interwoven nature of interpersonal and political dynamics in organizational settings. It studies and details the evolution of a 900-member community arts organization in which every member had the chartered right to participate as equals in all decision-making contexts. Many people believe that fully democratic systems will and should proliferate in the Anthropocene. This extensive analysis of what happened to one organization that started out with this commitment may provide some insight into the challenges implicit in these aspirations. Read it here.

  • Greening Capitalism, Quietly: Seven Types of Organizations Driving the “Necessary Revolution”

    To survive, capitalism must shift its strategy as an economic system from one concentrating solely on returning the highest rate of return to its investors as possible to one recognizing that the preservation of the natural environment is a co-equal obligation. This report, which will be updated in 2022, provides an overview to over 100 private sector associations that are pursuing strategies that support environmental responsibilities. They could do more and they could be more vociferous about their work. Read the report. The upcoming revised edition of this report will assess what progress has been made.

  • Nobody Thinks I'm Dead

    "I am red, I am blue, I am green, I ain't scared of you." Do not go gentle into that good night by Dylan Thomas - 1914-1953 Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
