Little Sun

Camping. Oh it is so so good! I did three months solid in the Rockies a while ago and when I got back down to Boulder the inevitable happened. I noticed how everything was covered in concrete. In a not cool way.

Very not cool. Deep ecology is where my heart is for sure. I used to say I was a depthless ecologist. That word could have two interestingly opposite meanings.

Anyway I just used my friend Olafur Eliasson's Little Sun, which is a solar powered lamp. It's so good. Really nice to hold it, kinda stylized sunflower. And really really bright.

Are you giving any talks or anything while you're here?

I'm a lifelong Boulderite, which sometimes feels like being a frog in a soup pot.

So not to be picayune here but if you are into Deep Dark Ecology, what's with the flights to conferences? I imagine you are not walking to Paris. I actually think yo are one of the few people whose work justifies the carbon emissions so I am not arguing against you, but how does one reconcile such stiff in one's own life? I have adopted a more or less Skype conference only policy although even using a computer burns fossil fuel. Rather than talk about saving tonnes here and there I am interested in how to make these dioceses in a better way.

It's not your footprint that matters: it's your handprint.
