Book Talk without the Carbon Footprint

The North American book tour is winding down, and I’ve had many more invitations to speak than I’ve been able to accept. But that’s okay. In the course of a couple of months, I’ve had the opportunity to hone my presentation a little and one of my favourite events was at the Town Hall in Seattle on January 18th, 2010, Martin Luther King Day. Thanks to Ed Mays (who has a version of this talk as a Windows file), you can watch it below, all 70 minutes of it. It’s a more environmentally sustainable way of doing things than my flying around. And, yes, it’s free.

For something shorter, there are a couple of pieces at Cooking Up A Story and, tomorrow, I’ll link to an interview on one of my favourite shows, The Hour with George Stromboulopoulous.

Update
And here’s me on The Hour.

  1. uh…wow! now the work and questioning must be put to action this instant. immediately! you’re right.

  2. Yes, we need to question the whole society. In the early 1920’s there was a group in Cambridge University called the Technical Alliance who took a scientific/technical approach at analyzing our social mechanism. They have concluded that the price system(i.e. capitalism, socialism, communism, fascism, etc.) cannot sustain a high energy civilization. So, as a result they published their findings and proposals in what is known as the Technocracy Study Course

    Howard Scott(Engineer) and M. King Hubbert(Well known Geo-scientist) Co-wrote this book.

    Technate design precludes special interest group control. It is a non political system of government which uses energy accounting instead of money. It is secular and humanitarian. For the only creative viable alternative investigate the Technate design located in the Technocracy Study Course.
