Insuring Global Warming
My friend Grace Jeffers, however, who recently wrote a book, about to be released, about building materials tells me that ultimately there is no such thing as environmentally friendly building material.
This strikes me as related to the problem of jet flying. In preparing an abstract for a conferenceon Sustainability in Germany this coming Spring, I voiced my concern about using jet fuel to get there. I was kindly steered to: www.atmosfair.de. This airline gives carbon credits. But it still uses fuel.
What is the answer? Do we stand still? Stop building entirely? Stop having children to tip us back from any possible revocable sustainable living point on this planet?
The global warming we experience today is the result of what we did in the seventies. Scary, huh? That means we have thirty years of catch up & consequences ahead.
Also in the early seventies, I did a sound event, "Stay Wait Look Listen", that projected my very soft voice into a very large architechtural space with those four words, spoken slowly and with about 30 sec. between. I recycled that concept many times and it was already a recyling from an earlier version I'd designed years earlier.
Is it possible that that is what is required: "Stay Wait Look Listen"? Would that mean we sit down and wait, as in a story someone told me about rainforest guides or perhaps it was sherpas... until our souls catch up with our bodies?
Something tells me that may be exactly what is required right now.
