Here's an upcoming event co-sponsored by MN350. Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com MN350 is pleased to co-present a talk by Nate Hagens on Thursday, July 10 -- The Converging Environmental & Economic Crises: A Pep Talk For Those Paying AttentionThis talk is the second in a series being co-sponsored by MN350, along with a number of Transition Town organizations as well as MCAD Sustainable Design Program. As we consider both the sense of urgency and the possibility for our planet, MN350 believes that the transition to a low-carbon future is most likely to occur in conjunction with the parallel development of new models to replace our dependence on fossil fuels as well as deep personal and communal changes that shift the collective consciousness of our society. Hence, MN350 participates in and supports a broad range of activities that focus on both these new models and the collective consciousness. This new speaker series is focused on the second of these "three pillars" -- developing new models that assist in moving away from our dependence on fossil fuels. The tug-of-war between economic growth and doing what ' s right for the environment is intensifying. What are the factors driving development and growth to this point, the brink of ecological collapse? Ecological economist Nate Hagens will talk about the economic, environmental , and behavioral drivers of growth and overshoot. He ' ll look at the interrelationship between debt-based financial markets and natural resources, particularly energy. And he ' ll examine the behavioral obstacles to changing our consumption patterns. Beyond analysis, Nate offers suggestions on how individuals and society might better adapt to what ' s ahead and the physical and psychological changes we might adopt.
