Do you have one of these? I get little obsess of mine. In fact, I get little obsessed with all my stuff. ***.I couldn’t stop wondering about that. So I looked it up and what text book said is stuff move with this system. From extraction, to production, to distribution, to consumption, to disposal, all together is called materials economy. Well, I look it into a little bit more. Infact, I spend ten years traveling the word, tracking where it came from and where it goes.  And you know what I found out? That’s not the whole story. There is a lot of missing from the exploration. For one thing, this is look like just be fine, no problem, but the truth is it’s a system in crisis. And the reason this is a system in crisis is it’s a linear system and we live on a finite planet and you cannot run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely. Every step along the way, this system is interacting with the real word. In real life it’s not happen in a blank white page. It’s interacting with society, culture, economy, environment. And all along the way is bumping up against limits. Limits we don’t see here because the diagram is incomplete.
So let’s go back through, let’s fill some of these blank and see what is missing. Well, one of most import thing missing is people. Yeah, people. People live and work all along this system.  And some people in this system matter a little more than others, and some have little more say: who are they. Well, let’s start with government. Now my friend tell me I should use the tank to symbolize the government and that’s true in many country and increasingly in our own. After all, more than 15% of our federal tax money is now going to the military. But I’m using a person to symbolize the government. But I hold true to the vision and values that the government should be of the people, by the people, for the people. It’s the government job to watch out for us, to take care of us, that’s their job. Then, along came the corporation, now the reason the corporation looks bigger than government is that the corporation is bigger than government.

1# jessiyear Of the 100 largest economies on earth now,  51are corporation.  And as  the corporation is grown in size and power, we see that little change in government. Well, they’re a little more concerned in making sure everything is working out to those guys than for us. Ok, so let’s see what else is missing from this picture. We start with extraction, which is the fancy word for nature resource exploitation, which is a fancy word for trashing the planet. What this looks like is we chop down the trees, we blow up the mountains to get the metals inside, we use up water and we wipe out the animals. So here we are running up against with our first limit, we are running out resources, we are using too much stuff. I know it’s can be hard to hear, but it’s the truth we’ve got to deal with it. In the past three decade alone, one third of the planet’s nature resource spaces have been consumed. Gone.  We are cutting, and mining, and hauling, and trashing the place so fast. We’re undermining the planet’s very ability for people to live here. Where I live in American, we have less than 4% of our original forest left. 40% of the waterways have become undrinkable. And our problem is not just that we’re using too much stuff, but we’re using more than our share. We have 5% of word’s population, but we’re using 30% of the word’s resources, and creating 30% of the world’s waste. If everybody consumed the U.S. rates, we would need 3 to 5 planets. And you know what? We’ve only got one.
So my county’s response to this limitation is simply to go take somebody else’s. This is the third world, which some would say is another world for our stuff that somehow got on somebody else’s land. So what’s that look like? The same thing, trashing the places, 75% of global fisheries now are fished at a beyond capacity. 80% of the planet original forests are gone. In the Amazon alone, we are losing 2 thousands trees a minute. That’s 7 football fields a minute. And what about the people who live here?  Well, accord to these guys, they don’t own these resources even if they’ve been living there for generations. They don’t have the means production and they are not buying a lot of stuff. And in this system, if you don’t own or buy stuff, you don’t have value.

Do you have one of these? I get a little obsessed with mine. In fact, I get a little obsessed with all my stuff. Have you ever wondered all the stuff we buy comes from and where goes when we throw it out? I couldn’t stop wondering about that. So I looked it up. And what the tax book said is that the stuff moves through a system from extraction, to production, to distribution, to consumption, to disposal. All together is called the material economy.

Well, I look into it a bit more. In fact, I spend 10 years travelling the world, tracking where * comes from, and where it goes. You know what I found out? That is not the whole story. There is a lot missing from this *. For one thing, this system looks like it is fine. No problem, but the truth is, it’s a system in crisis. And the reason this system in crisis is it’s a linear system and we live on a * planet and you can’t run a linear system on a * planet in definitely. Every step along the way, this system is interacting with the real world, and real life is not happening on a blank we page. It’s interacting with societies, cultures, economies and the environment, and all long a way it’s bombing up against limits.

Let me * we don’t see here, because the diagram is incomplete. So let’s go back through, let’s fill in some of the blanks and see what’s missing. Well, one of the most important things it’s missing is people. Yes, people. People live and work all along the system. And some people in this system matter a little more than others, some have a little more say. Who are they? Well, let’s start with the government. Though my friends tell me I should use a tank to simplify the government and that’s true in many countries increasingly in our own. After all more than 50 percent of our * tax money is now going into the military. But I’m using a person to simplify the government because I hold true to the vision and value that the government should be up the people, by the people, for the people. It’s the government’s job to watch out for us, to take care of us, that’s their job. Then, along came the corporation. Now the reason the corporation looks bigger than the government is that the corporation is bigger than the government. Of the 100 largest economies on earth now, fifty-one are corporations. And as the corporation is grown in size and power, we’ll see a little change in the government, whether a little more concern to make into everything working out for those guys than for us.

Ok, let’s see what else is missing from this picture. We start with the extraction, which is a fancy word for natural resource *, which is a fancy word for trashing the planet. What this looks like is we topple down the trees, we broke mountains to take the metal inside, we use off the water and we * out the animals. So here, we’re running up against our first limit. We’re running out resources. We’re using too much stuff. I know this can be hard to hear. But this is the truth. We’ve got to deal with it. In the past 3 decades alone, one third of the planet’s natural resource space has been consumed, gone. We are cutting and mining and holing and trashing the place so fast that we are undermining the planet’s very ability for people to live here. Where I live? In United States, we have less than 4 percent of our original forests left. 40 percent of the water ways have become undrinkable. And our problem is not just we’re using too much stuff, but we’re using more than our share. We have 5 percent of the world’s population, but we’re using 30 percent of the world’s resources, increasing 30 percent of the world’s waste. If everybody consumed US rates, we’ll need 3 to 5 planets. And you know what? We’ve only got one.

So my country’s response to this limitation is simply to go take somebody else’s. This is the third world, which some would say, is another world for our stuff that’s somehow got on somebody else’s land. So, what is that look like? The same thing: trashing the place. 75 percent of global fisheries now are fished at or beyond *. 80 percent of the planet’s original * are gone. In a * alone, we’re losing 2000 trees a minute, that is 7 football field a minute. And what about the people who live here? Well, according to these guys, they don’t own these resources even if they’ve been living there for generations. They don’t own means the production are not buying a lot of stuff. And in this system, if you don’t own or buy a lot of stuff, you don’t have value.

Do you know of this? In fact, I got a little upset of all my stuff. Have you ever wondered where does this comes from and go, so throw away. I couldn't stop wonderring about that, so I look it up. And what the text book said it's the stuff move to a system, trashing, to production, to distribution, to consumption, to disposal,all together is called the material economy.Well, I look into a little bit more. In fact, I spend 10 years travelling the world, tracking where our stuff come from and where it goes. You know what I found out, that is not the whole story. There's a lot missing from this explaination. For one thing, this looks like fine. No problem. But the truth is it's a system incrases. And the reason why this system incrases it's a linner system and we live in a fine planet and you can not run a linner system on a finance planet in definitely. Every step on the way, this system is interacting the real world. In realize it's not happening in blank page. It's  cultures, invironment, and all along the way it's bumping up the limits. Limits we don't see here because the intire program is completed, so let's go back through, let's filling some blanks and see what's missing. Well one of the most important thing we miss is people. yes, people. People live and work all around the system. And some of the people in the system matter more than others. some have a little more say. Who are they. let's start with the government. Then my friends tell me I should .the government and that's ture in many countries and it's incerested in  afterall more than 50% paying our tax money is going to the military. but I'm using a person to simblize the government, because I heard a ture to vision and value.government should be owe the people, buy the people,full the people, it's the government's job watch out for us, to take care of us, that's their job. Then a long corporation now the reason why corporation is bigger than government . is it the corporation bigger than government? After 100 the largest economic on earth now, 51 are corporations. And as the corporation is growing in size and power, we see a little change in government .a little more conser everything work out for those guys than for us. OK, so let's see whatelse is missing for the system, we'll start with intracktion, which is the fancy world for the nature resourse explaintation, which the fancy world, for trashing the planet this looks like is we chop down the trees we bolden mountains..get a mettle inside..water and we ..the animals. So here, we are running out our first limit. We are running out resourses. We are using too much stuff. Well I know this can be hard to hear, but it's the truth, we got to deal with it. In the past three decades along.one third of the planet nature resourses  can consume, gone. We are cutting and midding..trashing the place so fast. The world undermining..bear ability for people to live here. When I live in United State, we have less than 4% forelist for us left. 40% of the water way are something undrinkable. And our problem is not just we using too much stuff, but we are using more than our share. We have 5% of the world's population, but we are using 30% of the world's resourses. Including 30% of the world's waste. If everybody consume the US waste, we will need three to five planets. And you know what, we've only got one. So my country resb.. limitation is simply to go take somebody esles. This is the third world, which some would say is someother world.. stuff..somebodyelse's land. So what that look like? The same thing trashing the place. 75% of global fish is not our fished..beyond the compacity. 80% of the planets force are gone. In the end of the loan, we lose 2000 trees a minute. That's 7 football fields a minute. what about the people who live here? Well, according to these guys, they don't own these resourses, they don't live for  generations, they don't productions,buy a lot of stuff, in this system, if you don't own or buy a lot of stuff, you don't have a value.
[Homework]   Bits of knowledge: the story of stuff    20110403

Do you have one of these? I get a little obsessed with mine. In fact, I get a little obsessed with all my stuff. Have you ever wondered where all the stuff we buy comes from and where it goes when we throw it out? I couldn't stop wondering about that, so I look it up. And what the text book says is that the stuff moves through a system, from extraction, to production, to distribution, to consumption, to disposal. All together it is called the material's ecomomy.

Well, I look into it a little bit more, in fact, I spent ten years travelling the world, tracking where it comes from and where it goes. And you know what I have found out? That is not the whole story. There is a lot missing from this explaination.

For one thing, this system looks like fine,  no problem, but the truth is, it is a system in crisis, and the reason this system is in crisis is, it is a * system, and we live in a finite(有限的) planet, and you can not run a * system on a finite planet indefinitely. Every step along the way, this is interacting with a real world. In real life, it is not happening on the blank way page, it is interacting with societies, cultures, economies, and environments, and all along the way, it is bumping up against limits. Limits we don't see here because the diagrams is incomplete.

So let's go back through, let's fill in some of the blanks to see what it is missing. Well, one of the most important things is it's missing is people, yes, people. People live and work all along this system, and some people in this system matter a little more than the others, some have a little more say, who are they? Well, let's start with the government, now my friends tell me that I should do a tank to symbolize the government, that's true in many countries increasingly in our own. After all, more than 50% of our federal tax money is now going to the military, but I'm using a person to symbolize the government because I hold true to the visions and values that the government should be of the people, by the people, for the people, it is the government's job to watch out for us, to take care of us, that's their job.  

Then along came the corporation, now the reason of the corporation looks bigger than the government is that the corporation is bigger than the government, of the 100 largest ecomomies on the earth now, 51 are corporations, and that's the corporations grow in size and in power, we have see a little changing in the government whether a little more concern to make everything working out for those guys than for us.

Ok, so let's see what else is missing from this picture? We start with extraction, which is a fancy word for natural resources expolitation, which is a fancy word for trashing the planet. What this looks like is we chop down the trees, we blow up the mountains to get the medals inside, we use up all the water and we wipe out all the animals. So here, we are running up against our first limit, we are running out of resources, we are using too much stuff. I know this can be hard to hear, but it is the truth, so we got to deal with it. In the past three decades alone, 1/3 of the planets natural resources species have been consumed, gone, we are cutting, and mining, and hauling, and trashing the place so fast, the world undermining the planet is very ability for people to live here.

Where I live in the United States, we have less than 4% of our original for us left, 40% percent of the water wells becomes undrinkable, and our problem is not just that we are using too much stuff, but we are using more than we share. We have 5% of the world's population, but we are using 30% of the world's resources. In creating 30% of the world's waste, if every body consumed US rates, we will need 3-5 planets. And you know what, we have only got one.

So my country's response to the limitation is simply to go to take somebody else's. This is the third world, which some would say it is another world for our stuff and somehow got on somebody's land.  So what exactly it look like? The same thing, trashing the place, 75% of global fisheries now are fished at or beyond capacity. 80% of the planet's original forests are gone. In the * alone, we are losing 2000 trees a minute, that is 7 football fields on minute.

And what about the people who live in here? Well, according to these guys, they don't own these resources even they have been living in there for generations, they don't own the means of production and they are not buying a lot of stuff, and in this system, if you don't own or buy a lot of stuff, you don't have value.
