Post apocalyptic Walk in Movie
Pick your way through the rubble and armed mercenaries to The Edge, for an evening of dystopian fun featuring moonshine, survival tips from a classic post-apocalyptic movie and your soundtrack to the end of the world. We’re also delighted to welcome Tom from community bakery Loaf, who will be on hand to give you some advice on foraging for your next meal.
This one-off occurrence is part of a series of events and field-trips going on this summer under the auspices of Diesel Island. Other Birmingham events include a workshop from illustration collective Themlot and a guide to creating your own winged postal service from Project Pigeon.
All of us in the green movement are lost before the planet’s real nightmare: not too little fossil fuel – but too much
• $362bn (£223bn) for energy, to develop renewable forms of power and help to increase energy efficiency.
• $194bn on transport, including the development of cleaner and greener forms of transport, the provision of more public transport infrastructure and ways to better design cities.
• $134bn on buildings - to be spent equipping buildings better for future stresses, including through insulation and improved weather-proofing.
• $134bn on tourism - greening tourism could give many countries access to a vibrant, growing sector of the economy, as well as reducing the damage that travel does currently.
• $108bn for agriculture, in order to raise productivity, make the most of scarce water supplies, and preserve soil fertility.
• $108bn on fishing, to better manage declining fish stocks. Much of the money may have to go on compensating fishermen, because the UN calculates that the world’s fishing fleet should be halved.
• $108bn on waste and recycling, to cut the amount of waste going to landfills by about 70% within two decades.
• $108bn on water and sanitation, to help preserve existing water supplies, prevent the wasteful use of irrigation, and give millions of people access to safe water supplies and decent sewage treatment.
• $76bn for industry to improve efficiency and cut down on the wasteful use of natural resources.
• $15bn to halve deforestation in the next 20 years.
Futurist Ray Kurzweil says “we have plenty of time” to replace fossil fuels with renewables. Most of Kurzweil’s prognostications are derived from his law of accelerating returns
