The Stolen Wind Tribe of Cascadia Pass. New Myth 27 by Willi Paul

The Stolen Wind Tribe of Cascadia Pass. New Myth 27 by Willi Paul Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines Windmills of yesterday are not the same as the horizontal axis wind turbines of today.

“Our Own Bread” – Interview with rani Jayakumar, Transition Palo Alto, by Willi Paul, Permaculture Exchange http://planetshifter.com/node/2042 “I adore anything craft-related, especially when it uses found materials and things that would otherwise end up in the landfill.

Yes to Permaculture! The Vladislav Davidzon Interview, Founder and CEO of Common Circle Education. By Willi Paul, Planetshifter.com Magazine http://planetshifter.com/node/2037 – excerpt – “I think a lot (of the global warming debate) boils down to leadership and vision. I also find that real understanding of leadership is badly lacking in the permaculture community.
