The most recent Sustainability Doings:
April 18, 2013 – Sustainability Doings – “¡Presente!”
Honoring life on Earth Day and Every Day. Perhaps a sobering starting point for us as we begin each day would be to think of the thousands and thousands – millions? – of innocents killed by those carrying out senseless, sadistic violence – and by those carrying out expedient political mandates or final solutions (genocidal, sadistic “ethnic cleansing”) or in the name of justified, political retribution –- as well as those killed by the collateral effects of all the profit-protected toxicities (which result in those nasty degenerative diseases) and greenhouse gas climate disrupters (resulting in the devastation of super-storms, for starters).
And, with those who have died in our minds, say, “¡Presente!”, as marchers with the School of the Americas Watch say every year outside Fort Benning in Columbus GA. In so doing, they are honoring those who have died at the hands of the foreign military graduates who had attended our Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC) – formerly known as the US Army School of the Americas (SOA) – and which some call the School of Assassins.
And then, having those who have died present in us, include in our thinking during the day, our intent to stop the violence being done – to others, to us, by us, or in our name.

September 5, 2011 – Transition Sightings
Adrienne Rayna wrote, in a Sept 3rd email, “I think it would be cool to start a Sustainability / Transitions ‘Sightings’ List”, explaining, “Noticing the metamorphosis, the sustainability efforts that are going on, can feel empowering.” Well how about these as indicators that things they are a-changin’?
