• Water & Energy Summit Continues through Tuesday

    At the Water and Energy Expo today in downtown Santa Fe, there was a plethora of booths with lots of helpful information. In addition to all of the for-profit businesses touting cisterns, water-filtration systems, ecological landscapes, and photovoltaic panels, there were many non-profit organizations promoting their particular way to save the world. The Santa Fe Watershed Association was there, so I renewed our lapsed membership in the one group dedicated keeping at least a little water in the river that runs straight through the oldest capitol city in the U.S. There was also a new group called The Climate Change Leadership Institute. My friend Robb Hirsch is one of the motivating forces behind the group’s “Lead Your Revolution” campaign, which reminds me of the Gradual Greening system often discussed on this blog and in Harvest the Rain.


    On Monday and Tuesday, there will be plenty more water and energy action at the Hilton as the pre-summit winds down and the actual summit starts up. There will be presentations about water harvesting (one of which will be by me, another by my friend Brad Lancaster), alternative energy, water and energy policy, and much more.

The final frontier.

These are the musings of an engaging enterprise.
Its thirty-year mission:

To create a greener planet.

To seek a better life in our lumbering civilization, and

to slowly go where we are all are headed anyway.


Is an unproven system for generating wide-spread sustainability.

it asks for 10 minutes a day for a year. At the end of the year, it asks for 10 more.

So in the second year, you spend just 20 minutes a day, in the third year, 30 minutes.

If you keep up this pattern, 27 years later you spend over 4 hours per day being extremely green.
