Episode Description:

"We're a mining society. We mine the soils, the groundwater, the forest, the minerals, the fish… We're destroying non-renewable resources. There's no future in it." Richard Reese, author of What is Sustainable? and Sustainable or Bust, examines past cultures in search of patterns for a sustainable future. Earlier cultures lived slower and simpler. They limited their populations; many prohibited over-hunting. He concludes that ours is a story of tools: "We're really clever on the tool-making side of the game, and very undeveloped on the foresight side of the game." As resource bubbles pop and industrial civilization collapses, can we use wisdom from sustainable cultures, and not just repeat the same mistakes in the next civilization? Episode 271. []
