PDC+++ Module 3 Class 2 Regeneration

694

Published on

"Deserts are the footprint of civilization", & this means that the most important work we have to do now as conscious human beings is to regenerate the soils that have been lost, & those that have been exploited & de-vitalized all over the planet, especially by agricultural activities.
Fertile soils are very important stores of carbon in the earth, & just with regenerating soils we could halt climate change stabilizing the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere.
It is vital for sustainability that we regenerate & improve the fertility of soils also because they are the support of biodiversity, important stores of water & indeed the base of all land-dwelling life & any civilization. There are many techniques we can use, & many very inspiring examples of soils regeneration (& so of entire ecosystems) in the world. In this class we explore several of those.

  • Revitalization and reforestation The CCC, also known as Roosevelt&apos;s Tree Army, was credited with renewing the nation&apos;s decimated forests by planting an estimated three billion trees from 1933 to 1942. This was crucial, especially in states affected by the Dust Bowl , where reforestation was necessary to break the wind, hold water in the soil, and hold the soil in place. So far reaching was the CCC&apos;s reforestation program that it was responsible for more than half the reforestation, public and private, accomplish in the nation&apos;s history. Eligibility requirements for the CCC carried several simple stipulations. Congress required U.S. citizenship only. Other standards were set by the ECW. Sound physical fitness was mandatory because of the hard physical labor required. Men had to be unemployed, unmarried, and between the ages of 18 and 26, although the rules were eventually relaxed for war veterans. Enlistment was for a duration of six months, although many reenlisted after their alloted time was up. Problems were confronted quickly. The bulk of the nation&apos;s young and unemployed youth were concentrated in the East, while most of the work projects were in the western parts of the country. The War Department mobilized the nation&apos;s transportation system to move thousands of enrollees from induction centers to work camps. The Agriculture and Interior departments were responsible for planning and organizing work to be performed in every state. The Department of Labor was responsible for the selection and enrollment of applicants. The National Director of the ECW was Robert Fechner, a union vice president chosen personally by President Roosevelt. Young men flocked to enroll. Many politicians believed that the CCC was largely responsible for a 55 percent reduction in crimes committed by the young men of that day. Men were paid $30 a month, with mandatory $25 allotment checks sent to families of the men, which made life a little easier for people at home. Camps were set up in all states, as well as in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Enrollment peaked at the end of 1935, when there were 500,000 men located in 2,600 camps in operation in all states. California alone had more than 150 camps. The greatest concentration of CCC personnel was in the Sixth Civilian Conservation Corps District of the First Corps Area, in the Winooski River Valley of Vermont, in December 1933. Enlisted personnel and supervisors totaled more than 5,300 and occupied four large camps. The program enjoyed great public support. Once the first camps were established and the CCC became better known, they became accepted and even sought after. The CCC camps stimulated regional economies and provided communities with improvements in forest activity, flood control, fire protection, and overall community safety.
  • In response to the depression that hung over the nation in the early 1930s, President Roosevelt created many programs designed to put Americans back to work.
  • Tar Mine and truck #4. Alberta Tar Sands 2010. At the edge of an 80 meter deep mine, a massive tar sands truck is dwarfed by the surrounding landscape. These 400 ton trucks are the world’s largest measuring 25 feet high, 47 ½ feet long, and 32 feet wide. The mines, machinery, and trucks of the Alberta Tar Sands were the inspiration for Avatar’s Edmonton born art director’s vision of the mining operation on Pandora.

The CCC worked on improving millions of acres of federal and state lands, as well as parks. New roads were built, telephone lines strung, and trees planted.

    31. 42. Helena Norberg-Hodge Although this is not a re-generation project as such, it is a most integral analysis of what kind of re-generation we need to look for . In her famous documentary, Learning from Ladakh ,   Helena Norberg-Hodge explores all aspects of the damage caused by 'development': at the social, environmental, health & psychological as well as cultural & economic level.   Most importantly she clearly shows how these dimensions are intimately inter-connected .

    39. 54. a Social Model (RC) owning class working class sexism classism racism adultism/ageism isolated BY OPPRESSIONS (which are combinations of PATTERNS) ISOLATION is the pattern we perceive but INSIDE each group there is also tension
    40. 55. Internalized Oppression External Oppression (institutions & people who limit & batter us from outside) (patterns that limit & batter us from the inside) LOTS OF PRESSURE!! eg. adultism sexism racism classism ... > we attempt to ‘liberate’ it by acting as oppressors whenever the opportunity presents itself (= PERPETUATES the pattern) > or we anesthetize ourselves (drugs of any kind: it's their function = PERPETUATES the pattern)
    41. 56. zzzzzz We can consciously choose to challenge ourselves & look for maps & support to navigate an uncertain & changing future ... we can wait for and welcome surprises: the adventure
    42. 57. Our Society ISOLATION “ ME”, “My Project”, “My Idea&quot;, Individualism, Protagonism, Fragmentation, ... fear of intimacy, lots of 'meditation', etc. COMFORT SEEKING SUBSTANCE - FORM lots of Pretense &quot;Be FULL of yourself&quot; &quot;Be yourself&quot; But HONESTY is spiritual value we police these lines &quot;don't step out of line!&quot; we police each other
    43. 58. we are all &quot;odd-balls&quot; And it is our weirdness interacting with other people weirdness that CREATES
