I don't believe in God. Maybe I do. I don't know...but I'm not an agnostic. I just don't think existence works the way churches say, and I'll bet that if you could fire up a time machine and go tip some vino with Jesus, he wouldn't either.

I'm interested in practical solutions for an empire and a world that face declining fossil-fuel wealth. Peace and justice may become more elusive as oil becomes dearer. Stability, and what E. F. Schumacher called "a becoming life," will require an economy that operates on its solar income.
At age sixty, I'm beginning to learn how.
