|After many months of hard work, I'm extremely proud and delighted to announce the completion of our major new project — The Post Carbon Reader: Managing the 21st Century's Sustainability Crises. I believe it's the single most complete resource for those who want to understand both the sources and responses to our interrelated economic, energy, and environmental crises.
In 2009, Post Carbon Institute recruited 29 of the world's leading sustainability thinkers to answer one fundamental question: How do we manage the transition to a more resilient, sustainable, and equitable world? The first step, as we saw it, was to aggregate the most current, systems-oriented thinking about these interconnected threats, as well as the most promising responses. The Post Carbon Reader — will hit bookstores and classrooms in October 2010.
Over the coming weeks and months, we'll be posting free pdf downloads of many of the articles included in The Post Carbon Reader. The first two, by Fellows Sandra Postel and Warren Karlenzig, have just been released.
