I gave them Hvalsey Church

I got to the DCC hearings, and heard a few giving them a hard time, as I have these last years. And I got to thinking…..if their eyes go hibernate when you show them graphs, and it hasn’t worked so far………I gave them the story of Hvalsey Church – straight out of ‘Collapse’.

I had their attention, especially when I pointed out that they had the example of the vikings, and so wouldnt fall into the same trap. You wouldn’t catch the DCC building a massive stone edifice on the shores of their fjiord, with lots of expensive glass, when they should be addressing pending climate-change, resource depletion, and the need for sustainability.

I think they listened……..we still need a new bunch with new thinking, though, and we’re out of time.

Spent the rest of the day unsuccessfully trying to thread a coaxial cable through Potamos’ mast. Home tomorrow, I have an article to write about Hvalsey – will try the ODT with it, will put it here anyway. If I ever get the chance, I will load all the past ones, an amazing number of which are still relevant.
