A lezione di pensiero con Donella Meadows #2 - Decrescita Felice Social Network. Seconda puntata dell’articolo ‘Punti di leva: dove intervenire in un sistema’ di Donella Meadows: in parentesi in corsivo i miei commenti personali (archivio puntate precedenti: #1) Così un giorno, mi trovai ad un meeting su come rendere migliore il mondo – beh, in realtà era un meeting in cui ci si occupava di come il nuovo regime commerciale globale, NAFTA, GATT e la World Trade Organization, stessero probabilmente peggiorando il modo di funzionare del mondo.

A lezione di pensiero con Donella Meadows #2 - Decrescita Felice Social Network

Cominciai a bollire. “Questo che stanno inventando è un nuovo, gigantesco sistema” Mi dissi. ”Non hanno la minima idea di come si comporterà questa struttura complessa”, mi auto-risposi. “E’ quasi certamente un esempio di come sviluppare un sistema che va nella direzione sbagliata – punta alla crescita, crescita a qualsiasi prezzo. All’improvviso senza rendermi pienamente conto di quanto stesse accadendo, mi alzai, avanzai verso la lavagna a fogli mobili, tirai una pagina pulita e scrissi: Énergie : le véritable nerf de la guerre – Matthieu Auzanneau. Quel lien entre l’énergie, le climat, l’économie, la puissance des nations et nos modes de vie ?

Énergie : le véritable nerf de la guerre – Matthieu Auzanneau

La question de l’énergie est l’une des plus essentielles de notre époque, et pourtant elle est souvent incomprise, ou même simplement mise de côté. Nos économies, nos sociétés, nos modes de vies, notre capacité à innover, les jeux géopolitiques… tout est lié à l’énergie, directement ou indirectement, car rien ne se fait sans elle.

Coronavirus : au cœur de la bataille immunitaire contre le virus

Twelve leverage points. The twelve leverage points to intervene in a system were proposed by Donella Meadows, a scientist and system analyst focused on environmental limits to economic growth.[1] Contents History[edit] The leverage points, first published in 1997, were inspired by Meadows' attendance at a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) meeting in the early 1990s, where she realized a very large new system was being proposed but the mechanisms to manage it were ineffective.

Twelve leverage points

Meadows, who worked in the field of systems analysis, proposed a scale of places to intervene in a system. SM 2093 — La fallacia della sostenibilità — 1999. Villaggio Globale, 2, (5), 44-45 (marzo 1999)

As the Raging Twenties unleash a radical reconfiguration of the planet, coronavirus (literally “crowned poison”) has for all practical purposes served a poisoned chalice of fear and panic to myriad, mostly Western, latitudes.

Confucius is winning the Covid-19 war - Asia Times

Berlin-based, South Korean-born philosopher Byung-Chul Han has forcefully argued the victors are the “Asian states like Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan or Singapore that have an authoritarian mentality which comes from their cultural tradition [of] Confucianism.” Han added: “People are less rebellious and more obedient than in Europe. They trust the state more. Daily life is much more organized.

Above all, to confront the virus Asians are strongly committed to digital surveillance. That’s a reductionist view and plenty of nuances should apply. Seoul went for fast mobilization of scientific expertise; immediate massive testing; extensive contact tracing; and social distancing, as well. Hong Kong’s success is due in large part to a superb health care system. La società iatrogena. La produzione della dipendenza Nei primi giorni della crisi sanitaria qualcuno ha ironizzato sull’eredità intellettuale di autori come Michel Foucault e Ivan Illich, colpevoli di aver criticato in vario modo l’approccio moderno alla malattia; avrebbe fatto meglio a rileggerli.

Aerosols have a strong impact on climate, in particular sulfur dioxide and black carbon.As above image shows, aerosols result from burning fuel in industrial processes and transport, and for purposes of heating or lighting buildings (such as with woodburners, furnaces, stoves, candles, oil lamps and open fireplaces) or for preparing food and boiling water.

Aerosols

Aerosols can also be caused by open fires that can be lit to make charcoal, burn waste, turn forests into pasture, etc. Global warming increases the fire danger (i.e. in frequency, intensity, duration and size) and thus emissions from both forest fires and controlled open fires (backburning and reducing waste).A 2008 study by Ramanathan et al. mentions figures from other studies for the radiative forcing (RF) of black carbon, i.e. figures ranging from 0.4 Watts per square meter (W/m²) to 1.2 W/m². A 2013 study by Bond et al. calculates that black carbon has a warming effect of about 1.1 W/m². Links • Wildfires. May be, or The Luck of the Virus – Gaianism. Many of you have probably heard the Taoist story of “May Be.” Also called “Who Knows What’s Good or Bad” and “The Farmer’s Luck.”

If you haven’t, here it is: in text (below) and a 2-minute video version as well: “An old farmer had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. A Pandemic of Love – deeply adapting to corona – Professor Jem Bendell. I’ve not been breathing so deeply recently. I’ve been checking news sites every hour. I’ve been wondering how best to protect myself, loved ones, and participate in wider efforts at change. Non torneremo più alla normalità. Ecco come sarà la vita dopo la pandemia. “Per fermare il coronavirus dovremo cambiare radicalmente quasi tutto quello che facciamo: come lavoriamo, facciamo esercizio fisico, socializziamo, facciamo shopping, gestiamo la nostra salute, educhiamo i nostri figli, ci prendiamo cura dei nostri familiari”.

Così comincia un’analisi di Gordon Lichfield, direttore di MIT Technology Review (il magazine della prestigiosa università americana) dedicato ai cambiamenti nella vita personale e nel mondo del business che la pandemia finirà per cristallizzare anche dopo che sarà attenuata. “La maggior parte di noi probabilmente non ha ancora capito, e lo farà presto, che le cose non torneranno alla normalità dopo qualche settimana, o addirittura dopo qualche mese.

(3) COLLAPSOS : LES NOUVEAUX PERMACULTEURS ? O. Gruié [ NEXT ] S02E07. Our second greatest shortcoming. The late Albert Bartlett, a professor in nuclear physics at the University of Colorado, famously explained that: “The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function.”

What Bartlett was referring to was the way in which most people misunderstand growth – whether of an economy, a population or, indeed, a pandemic virus. When an economist, a politician or a journalist talks about the desirability of a GDP growth of, say, 2.8 percent; they usually imagine that this involves only a small growth in economic activity over and above today’s level. How did Europe become the richest part of the world? How and why did the modern world and its unprecedented prosperity begin? Learned tomes by historians, economists, political scientists and other scholars fill many bookshelves with explanations of how and why the process of modern economic growth or ‘the Great Enrichment’ exploded in western Europe in the 18th century.

One of the oldest and most persuasive explanations is the long political fragmentation of Europe. THE CLIMATE CINEMA – Inspiration for climate action! GAIA’S PROBLEM CHILDREN (E47) — Likeville.

Imagine your town is crisscrossed by giant trains that travel insanely fast, because the train owners pay their drivers based on speed. The town establishes speed limits, installs flashing lights, brings out police to keep pedestrians off the tracks. Inevitably, the trains continue to crash into people and cars, causing injury and death. How does the town council respond? By repairing crossings and fences.

This is how society now attempts to regulate corporate behaviour. It’s time to make the profit-maximising, shareholder-controlled corporation obsolete. That much has been conceded, at least rhetorically, even by CEOs of the largest US corporations, in an August 2019 Business Roundtable statement.
