What I do

Why envision?

As we are reaching the end of the industrial age, I believe we need a positive vision of the future without abundant fossil fuel. Postive becase we are surrounded by negative views of ourselves humanity and our prospects. We also need to fix the economic system that got us into this predicament. This blog presents my work envisioning sustainable living arrangements for cities and rural areas. I also offer alternative financing strategies that support sustainable development.
