You’re invited for a bird’s-eye view of the sustainability movement in the age of Trump, including where we can and should go, with Asher Miller, head of the Post Carbon Institute.
Through Post-Cabon, Asher has connected the different parts of the sustainability movement. He was instrumental in helping the Transition Movement get started in the United States. He’s supported the work of Richard Heinberg on energy and peak oil and brought together experts such as Bill McKibben (climate) and Rob Hopkins (Transition).
Post Carbon has published many books, articles, and videos on sustainability, and supports the news site Resilience.org. Transition Palo Alto member Bart Anderson is one of the resilience.org editors and has worked with Asher since 2008.
Bart says, “Asher is that rare combination of idealist and common sense. Working behind the scenes, he is a master at networking the different groups and individuals. I always value his thoughts on strategy. If you want to learn what’s really going on, listen to Asher!”
