P

lanet Earth. From space, our blue/green home looks peaceful. Those of us who live here know — things are not what they seem. As we go to press, the Japanese deal with the aftermath of a massive earthquake, a tsunami, and the threat of nuclear meltdown. The Middle East implodes, and the world’s financial institutions tremble. In this issue, Lester Brown reminds us the enormity of our problems demands huge efforts; there’s no time for complacency. Advisor Mark Jacobs asks, “What can I do right now with what I have to fulfill my purpose?” Daryl Hannah brings it back to personal choice, and a low-impact lifestyle, and artist John Aaron saves the planet by not smoking. Finally, we’d like to share part of a letter from an American living in Sendai when the disaster hit: “At this time, I realize …there is indeed an enormous cosmic evolutionary step occurring all over the world at this moment. As I experience the events happening in Japan, I can feel my heart opening very wide. My brother asked me if I felt so small because of all that is happening. I don’t. Rather I feel part of something much larger than myself. This wave of birthing worldwide is hard, and yet magnificent.”*

World on the Edge:

Preventing the Ultimate Recession by Lester R. Brown The Whole Person Calendar presents the special excerpted preface from Lester R. Brown’s book, World on the Edge. As the president and founder of Earth Policy Institute, Brown sought to create a road map for achieving an environmentally sustainable economy. His latest publication, one of more than 50 different books, touches upon an increasingly alarming and important issue: as global warming becomes an undeniable reality, our natural resources — food, water and energy — are contracting.

W

hen I meet old friends and they ask, “How are you?” I often reply, “I’m fine; it’s the world I am worried about.” “Aren’t we all” is the common response. Most people have a rather vague sense of concern about the future, but some worry about specific threats such as climate change or population growth. Some are beyond questioning whether civilization will decline if we continue with business as usual, and instead they are asking when this will occur. In early 2009, John Beddington, chief science advisor to the U.K. government, said the world was facing a “perfect storm” of food shortages, water scarcity, and costly oil by 2030. These developments, plus accelerating climate change and mass migration across national borders, would lead to major upheavals. A week later, Jonathon Porritt, former chair of the U.K. Sustainable Development Commission, wrote in the Guardian that he agreed with Beddington’s analysis but that the timing was off. He thinks the crisis “will hit much closer to 2020 than 2030.” He calls it the “ultimate recession”— one from which there may be no recovery. These assessments by Beddington and Porritt raise two key questions. If we continue with business as usual, how much time do we have left before our global civilization unravels? And how do we save civilization? World on the Edge is a response to these questions. As to how much time we have left with business as usual, no one knows for sure. We are handicapped by the difficulty of grasping the dynamics of exponential growth in a finite environment—namely, the earth. For me, thinking about this is aided by a riddle the French use to teach schoolchildren exponential growth. A lily pond has one leaf in it the first day, two the second day, four the third, and the

number of leaves continues to double each day. If the pond fills on the thirtieth day, when is it half full? The twenty-ninth day. Unfortunately for our overcrowded planet, we may now be beyond the thirtieth day. My sense is that the “perfect storm” or the “ultimate recession” could come at any time. It will likely be triggered by an unprecedented harvest shortfall, one caused by a combination of cropwithering heat waves and emerging water shortages as aquifers are depleted. Such a grain shortfall could drive food prices off the top of the chart, leading exporting countries to restrict or ban exports—as several countries did when prices rose in 2007– 08 and as Russia did again in response to the heat wave of 2010. This in turn would undermine confidence in the market economy as a reliable source of grain. And in a world where each country would be narrowly focused on meeting its own needs, the confidence that is the foundation of the international economic and financial systems would begin to erode. Now to the second question. What will it take to reverse the many environmental trends that are undermining the world economy? Restructuring the economy in time to avoid decline will take a massive mobilization at wartime speed. Here at the Earth Policy Institute and in this book, we call this massive restructuring Plan B. We are convinced that it, or something very similar to it, is our only hope. As we think about the ecological deficits that are leading the world toward the edge, it becomes clear that the values generating ecological deficits are the same values that lead to growing fiscal deficits. We used to think it would be our children who would

have to deal with the consequences of our deficits, but now it is clear that our generation will have to deal with them. Ecological and economic deficits are now shaping not only our future, but our present. Beddington and Porritt deserve credit for publicly addressing the prospect of social collapse because it is not easy to talk about. This is partly because it is difficult to imagine something we have never experienced. We lack even the vocabulary. It is also difficult to talk about because we are addressing not just the future of humanity in an abstract sense, but the future of our families and our friends. No generation has faced a challenge with the complexity, scale, and urgency of the one that we face. But there is hope. Without it this book would not exist. We think we can see both what needs to be done and how to do it. There are two policy cornerstones underlying the Plan B transformation. One is to restructure taxes by lowering income taxes and raising the tax on carbon emissions to include the indirect costs of burning fossil fuels, such as climate change and air pollution, in fossil fuel prices. The amount of tax we pay would not change. The second policy cornerstone is to redefine security for the twenty-first century. The threats to our future now are not armed aggression but rather climate change, population growth, water

shortages, poverty, rising food prices, and failing states. Our challenge is not only to redefine security in conceptual terms, but also to reallocate fiscal priorities to shift resources toward achieving the Plan B goals. These include reforestation, soil conservation, fishery restoration, universal primary school education, and reproductive health care and family planning services for women everywhere. Although these goals are conceptually simple and easily understood, they will not be easily achieved. They will require an enormous effort from each of us. The vested interests of the fossil fuel and defense industries in maintaining the status quo are strong. But it is our future that is at stake. Yours and mine.

Romancing the Smoke: Confessions of a Nicotine Addict by John Aaron

Editors note: Pollution comes in many forms and includes what we do to ourselves as well as what we do to our global environment. Here is one ex-smoker’s first-hand experience of the quitting process, and addiction to nicotine. This is an excerpt from John Aaron’s work in progress, Romancing the Smoke: Confessions of a Nicotine Addict.

this was a social norm. My friends and I would snag a couple and head to the woods behind the house to be cool, puffing away and doing our best Marlon Brandos, James Deans and Jimmy Cagneys; “Yeah… you killed my brother, you dirty rat!” We were learning to smoke. It was a learned response. We liked being punks. Advertising and the movies told us we should be.

Like today for marijuana, there was an absurdist amount of scenes that will ultimately include a cigarette as an integral prop in tobacco paraphernalia, from ashtrays and cigarette holders to the story; like a reward from Hell. I call this phenomenon lighters, cases and humidors. This was very big business. “romancing the smoke.” It used to be that a very thoughtful gift was a big fancy ashtray. For example: I’m at a beautiful lakeside retreat. The sun is Smoking was glamorous; all the movie stars spent a lot of time setting over the far shore; the air is filled with the smell of steak or showing us how enjoyable and sexy it was…and how, if you fish on the grill. There’s a table on the porch where a fine garden smoked, you got the girl or the guy. salad, crisp baked potatoes and garlic bread awaits the char-broiled We could smoke in restaurants, movie theaters, and college centerpiece of this incredible feast. A glass of bubbling champagne classrooms. A jazz club wasn’t a jazz club unless it was filled with to wash down this dream meal and then, the long awaited after smoke; second hand smoke hadn’t been invented yet. dinner smoke – like dinner was simply foreplay to what this was My initial experiences with cigarettes came from an even really about – the cigarette.

With a cigarette, you’re never bar stool. I hated that drink they always made me called a “Roy really alone. Hell, I remember talking to the damned things. See Rogers.” Why did they call the same drink for girls, “Shirley how the mind paints a picture of something beautiful to cover up Temples?” And who thought kids liked that drink?

exclaiming, “this is my dinner!” I recall how badly he smelled; I still can’t eat olives to this day. Dinner seemed like an afterthought to this crowd, who met every evening to get plastered and talk about steel, coal, the railroad, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Iron City beer. My fascination for smoking began with the cigarette machine in the corner of the bar. Uncle Jack, who didn’t appear to do anything but drink, was a scoundrel of the first water, or the first scotch. He thought it cute to entertain the masses by sending little Johnny on an errand to get him a pack of Lucky Strike unfiltered cigarettes. I was around so much smoke when I was young, I didn’t think anything of it. Jack, big spender that he was, would give me a quarter with a flourish, like he was proud of violating child labor laws. “Go get me a pack of Luckies and you can keep the change!” A pack was 22 cents. As strange as this sounds, when I placed a quarter in the cigarette machine, and made the selection, I’d receive the smokes with three pennies taped to the pack; a penny meant something then. I was enthralled with the clink clank the coin made when put it into the slot, which I could barely reach, and with the metallic sounds that boomed from the machine when I pulled the lever. Then there was the hollow, echoing, small thud that produced a fresh pack of Luckies at the bottom of the tray. A Rube Goldberg moment – the slot machine of Death. It was fun; and so grown up. Sometimes his buddies would ask me to get them smokes too, like they too were contributing to my college fund. I doubt that too many of that crew ever graced the Ivy halls. But I learned at an early age smoking was cool. “Go make yourself valuable, kid!” my uncle would say, and I would. At four, I was making money as a drug runner. A tobacco mule. Somewhere R J Reynolds was laughing till he wet his pants.

Romancing the Smoke: Confessions of a Nicotine Addict is John Aaron’s how-to book on quitting smoking and the absurdities of the smoker’s experience. The book addresses the pop culture phenomenon of the habit more than the medical aspects. John Aaron is an artist, musician and writer who gave up cigarettes last year and lived to tell about it. He wrote and illustrated this book. He is also the founder and CEO of the non-profit global art project, CHALK4PEACE. He lives in Ojai, California. Inquiries about the book should be directed to aaron@chalk4peace.org.

Join the S Solution Revolution

o we’ve all heard the bad news –

We’re in the midst of a population explosion, a credit crisis, there’s climate chaos, poverty, unprecedented loss of species, loss of open wild space, resource depletion, etc, etc… Our scientists have been warning us for years that we are stressing the natural limits of our planet.

by Daryl Hannah

Yet we are responding at a snails pace. If you were to receive a call from the fire department telling you that your house was on fire, would you casually get up and languidly gather the kids, pets and your treasured sentimental possessions? I don’t think so. We are facing crisis and we urgently need to take strong decisive actions. But what can we as individuals do? Well here’s the good news – We have the solutions available to us now to resolve many of the serious issues we face, but it’s essential that we speed up and scale up their implementation. And though political reforms, an administration change, carbon trading, and technological fixes are all necessary, I believe fundamentally that real lasting change lies within each one of us. All the crises we face ultimately come down to a value issue. They all have to do with the way we in the industrial world live our lives. It’s not unusual to feel overwhelmed, disempowered and freaked out by the direction our civilization is going. It can be hard to remember that even with financial restrictions we have the power to change our own lives. But we can redefine the American dream. Remake the image of success. We can simplify our lives and still be productive and thrive. The concept of sacrifice was once a holy, even revered noble act and now our glutinous consumptive society has transformed into something to fear. The days disposable everything, shop till you drop and bigger is better, are over. Quality over quantity must rule. Less is more! Things that last a lifetime may cost more initially, but always save you tons in the end. I try to make a daily habit of examining the way I live and consider the long-term ramifications of my choices and actions. It’s an ever-evolving process and it’s human not to be perfect. But any move toward sustainability and self-reliance is incredibly liberating. So come on down, find and share information, speak out, take action and take part in the solution revolution!

MSIA teaches Soul Transcendence, which is becoming aware of yourself as a Soul and as one with God, not as a theory but as a living reality. The Soul is who you truly are; it is more than your body, your thoughts or your feelings. It is the highest aspect of your Self, where you and God are one. MSIA provides tools and techniques that allow you to experience your Soul and, therefore, your own divinity.

“All that you want to be, you already are. All you have to do is move your awareness there and recognize the reality of your own Soul.”

MSIA presents an approach that focuses on how to incorporate spirituality into your everyday living. We call it “practical spirituality”. Visit www.msia.org for more information on events and classes in your area.

The

Healthy

Foodie

by Sharon Hall The Glory of Spring April is a beautiful month. In my neighborhood, the air is sweet with jasmine, and plum blossoms draw the intoxicated bees. Winter rains turn our hillsides bright with wildflowers, and Nature is a Siren, luring us outdoors to play in the warm sunlight. This is my favorite time in the garden; the appearance of new potatoes is exciting; I love turning the soil to find these thin-skinned beauties. They are marvelous roasted with new garlic and other seasonal veggies, including asparagus spears, baby beets, sweet carrots, and tiny zucchinis. I take for granted the bounty of fresh produce available to me in Southern California, so I was alarmed to learn about legislative changes underway that will make it harder to know — unless we grow or raise it ourselves — if our food is safe from genetic tampering. Certain edibles are not required to come with labeling, making it harder to know what is, and is not, genetically engineered. According to an editorial in the New York Times: “ It’s the unwillingness to label these products as such — that is demeaning and undemocratic, and the real reason is clear: producers and producer-friendly agencies correctly suspect that consumers will steer clear of G.E. products if they can identify them. Which may make them unprofitable. Where is the free market when we need it?” I encourage all of you, who are not already doing so, to utilize your local farmer’s market, and to consider growing your own food, whenever and wherever you can. Support your local cooperative and health food stores concerned about GMO products. For more information on how you can get involved, follow the links below, write to Michelle Obama at The White House, and contact your Congressperson. Our food is our health; until more long-term research has been done on genetically modified foods, we all need to speak our minds, and protect our food supply by voting with our forks. Happy and healthy eating. http://action.responsibletechnology.org/p/salsa/web/ common/public/signup http://www.responsibletechnology.org/ http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/ http://www.nongmoproject.org/retailers/supporting-retailerprogram/

Roasted Spring Vegetables Ingredients: 6 asparagus spears, left whole or cut in half Several golden beets, whole if small or halved Several small zucchinis, halved or whole 2-3 patty-pan squash, thickly sliced New carrots, if small leave whole, otherwise cut in two 1 cup Italian parsley, chopped fine New potatoes, left whole if small, bigger, cut in half Olive oil, 2 -3 tablespoons Young garlic — 1 head Sea salt Fresh ground pepper Balsamic vinegar or lemon juice Grated Parmesan-Romano or feta, optional

Preheat oven to 400°F. In stages: Combine all vegetables in a large bowl with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Roll around with clean hands to thoroughly coat veggies. Spread the potatoes, garlic head, and beets on a large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast 15-20 minutes. Add zucchini, carrots, and squash to baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast another 7 minutes, stirring veggies occasionally for evenness. Lastly, add asparagus. Continue roasting until all veggies are tender and potatoes are browning. Last: Squeeze roasted garlic cloves and mash with remaining oil. Add a splash of lemon juice or balsamic vinegar, sprinkle veggies with the parsley; add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with cheese on the side.

Mindful Business

Strategies by Mark Jacobs, RScP Witnessing the unending devastation and heart-strapping loss in Japan following one of the largest earthquakes and tsunamis in modern history, I found myself wondering how to discuss sustainability when everything, on our physical plane at least, is completely impermanent. On the other side of the globe, Libyans continue to fight hard for freedom from leaders who will snuff out human life to sustain the perceptions of power, wealth and control. I realize “sustainable practices” generally means to put into place ways of living that wreak little to no havoc on the local or global environment, to minimize our consumptive footprint, individually and collectively. To get our full attention, however, it seems most everything has to fall apart for us to rethink, repurpose and rebuild our interior frames of reference in ways that sustain all forms of life. Coming back to the fields of debris in Sendai, we’re reminded just how simple things can get in an instant. When faced with larger questions, considerations or plans, it always puts life in perspective when we do what is in front of us to do. The task may seem trivial, frustrating or pointless, but it will usually open up the space for the bigger picture, the directive guidance, to emerge. Beginning my own nonprofit over 2 years ago now, I’ve been continuously reminded to work with what I have, a lesson hard won. It’s unnecessary to wait for all the money, supplies, people, ideas. Rather, I ask, “What can I do right now with what I have to fulfill my purpose?” Despite the catastrophic events disturbing or ending the lives of our brothers and sisters on the planet, the essence of who we are is eternal. At our core, we are forever unchangeable, so living from the level of soul will always move us closer to sustainability. Common feelings of compassion and desires to help those who’ve been struck down by calamity can deeply inform how we now choose to see the world and our place in it. Taking additional time throughout the day to be will move us to do more effectively with a greater sense of purpose. The path of our doing rises up from the stillness. We’re sustained by a clearer sense of how to proceed because we’ve consciously connected with Source. I prefer the medieval definition of sustainable – to hold up, support, endure – because it suggests that we are here as part of a community of souls. We’re each on a journey, yet we are interconnected as we walk this path. Sometimes it feels impassable; other times, the road is wide open as far as the divine eye can see. When we view ourselves as whole, we recognize others as whole. Regardless of the exterior circumstances, we’re called to hold up and support each other, to endure with our souls. The outer lives of countless thousands across the world have been wiped away in recent months, and it is our opportunity, once again, to finally realize that we are One. It’s time to ask these questions - What is our local or global community crying out for? How can I support someone else today? What will it take to endure the changes I witness around me? Let the love and compassion and frustration move you. Find ways to respond to the expressed needs of others. Release what your ego thinks the community should need and be willing to listen, rethink and repurpose your life. The more who do this, the more sustainable we become.
