Interview on the Big Shift

Half hour interview with Karl Fitzgerald of Prosper Australia on the Big Shift. https://www.mixcloud.com/RenegadeEconomists/

I was surprised when I played it today how animated I sounded. Now I need to finish promoting this book and get on with writing the next one, probably entitled Emergency with a subtitle about the need to have a climate currency and how it could be applied.

The notes are on Karl’s site

Book selling well and I have my first meeting arranged

Helen told me she only has 7 copies left out of 42 so that means there have been quite a few sales.

I also have a date for a meeting with Otaki Transition Towns at the end of June so that is great. I would love to arrange others and fit them in with my local work on climate change issues in waste management. I need to keep in touch with local environmental, governmental and economic issues. We also have a timebank meeting at my place on Wednesday night. I can see how it can fit in as a perfect way for the council to save money.

Phil also did an interview with me in Lyttelton about the book and I hope we can get it up on the website under Resources.

Trapped in Wellington due to fog

So great plans to get to Lyttelton early didn’t work out because of the fog at the airport, in fact fog all over Wellington, most unusual. Lots of people going to the Expo are similarly trapped, some going tomorrow and some the day after. Here is the programme. I don’t get there till Friday now.

That gives me an extra day to practise my talk and work on this website.
