TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

A Deliciously Resourceful Town Aims For Total Food Self-Sufficiency Within 7 Years
Thousands of vegetables in 70 large beds around the town are there for the taking. Locals are encouraged to help themselves. A few tomatoes here, a handful of broccoli there. If they’re in season, they’re yours. Free.

Three years ago, Mary Clear, 56, a grandmother of ten and co-founder of Incredible Edible, did a very unusual thing: she lowered her front wall, in order to encourage passers-by to walk into her garden and help themselves to whatever vegetables took their fancy.
There were signs asking people to take something but it took six months for folk to ‘get it’, she says.
They get it now. Obviously a few town-centre vegetable plants — even thousands of them — are not going to feed a community of 15,000 by themselves.
But the police station potatoes act as a recruiting sergeant — to encourage residents to grow their own food at home.
Today, hundreds of townspeople who began by helping themselves to the communal veg are now well on the way to self-sufficiency.

The Solar House


Image
After spending 12 years in the Himalayas writer Elaine Brook came back home to the UK and was eager to introduce some of the simplicity and natural living that came so naturally to people there.
She set about creating an energy efficient, beautiful and inspiring home. Elaine's house uses less than 40% of the energy of similar houses. For heat she uses a combination of passive solar, solar panels and a wood burning stove. Even in the winter, the passive solar does most of the heating.
There is even a swimming pool heated by the excess heat from the solar panels!
The rainwater harvesting system is constructed to go from the roof, into a pond and then to water the fruit. Naturally, she has a garden to grow her own vegetables.
The house was an experiment to see how close to carbon zero she could get.
"The most important thing I've learned is that I continue to feel intrigued and challenged rather than guilty about the bits still left to sort out, and I focus on fun and celebrating the successes and swapping information with people involved in their own One Planet Living experiment."

As the credits for the movie The Big Year [very entertaining] see 755 birds in the timespan of one song...
Amazing.
