Comments on: And You Thought It Could Never Happen… http://sharonastyk.com/2008/05/14/and-you-thought-it-could-never-happen/ Sharon Astyk's Ruminations on an Ambiguous Future Fri, 29 Aug 2008 05:56:16 +0000 #?v=2.3.2 By: Anais-Solari http://sharonastyk.com/2008/05/14/and-you-thought-it-could-never-happen/#comment-5835 Anais-Solari Wed, 21 May 2008 15:33:56 +0000 http://sharonastyk.com/2008/05/14/and-you-thought-it-could-never-happen/#comment-5835 Sharon: On Television, the new version of “Survivor” takes over with a new theme - participants must create a fully sustainable society that will enable everyone to surivive. If they don’t, they will never be let off the island. Van Jones, James Lovelock, Joseph Romm, Elizabeth Kolbert, Catherine Austin Fitts, Derrick Jensen and Vandana Shiva: The seven survivors undergo physical and mental challenges as they attempt to hammer out a set of universal worldwide policies to enable our species to survive. Despite some initial set-backs, as when Van Jones and Fitts tell Jensen to shut up about his parents already, and when Kolbert and Lovelock engage in a mud-wrestling death match over nuclear power, ratings rise as they begin to craft a mission statement. United by their desire to get away from one another, ultimately they create Utopia for humans and salmon alike. Sharon:

Like others {No TV for 33 years, left the states 29 years ago} I missed half the references. But I live the life you are trying to promote. So maybe there is a message there. What I see is that when gasoline and food get expensive enough change will accelerate. We're close now. I liked the quality of your writing, I'll go check your other posts. Excelsior.
