Praise for Urban Scout

When I feel like surfing a bit nearer the edge, I check out Scout’s latest. It’s irreverent, angry, informative, and sometimes he’s not even nice. Urban Scout is out there exploring and inventing rewilding and contemporary tribal skills with style, and I admire that he doesn’t claim to know it all. Scout always takes me down an unanticipated path. We civilized folk have forgotten what he’s trying to remember for us.
– Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture

It’s the Urban in Urban Scout that’s key, I’d say. Reminding us that we can make a start from wherever we are, on the joyful trek away from civilization. This site is rich and wide-ranging. Full of stimulating takes, methods, communications – not forgetting some humor. Bravo!
– John Zerzan, Editor Green Anarchy Magazine, Author of Future Primitive

Urban Scout has a wisdom and intelligence far beyond his years. He is helping us move away from this culture of death and toward a sane culture that will not kill the planet.
– Derrick Jensen, author of A Language Older Than Words

Urban Scout combines passion, intelligence, and a quirky sense of humor, and puts it all at the feet of the most important cause any of us could undertake: rewilding ourselves, our environments, and our relationships. And he even manages to look cool while doing it.
– Jason Godesky from The Tribe of Anthropik

Last week we got a chance to talk with Peter Michael Bauer from the Blog Urban Scout and the Rewilding Portland Non-Profit organization.

We've cross posted Peter in the past here on the Diner, but he took some time off from blogging, so there hasn't been much new.  He's back at it again now, doing audio podcasts and video rather than too much text blogging yet, and has several up on his site.

The rewilding idea is rather controversial, since living the H-G lifestyle takes a lot of territory for a few people, and there isn't a whole lot of uninhabited territory with good resources to live such a lifestyle.  However, if you take a long term view and postulate the likelihood of a significant dieoff of the current population of Homo Saps, such forms of living may return in earnest, and who will have the skills for them?

Peter explains his perspective in this podcast.

    Dear RE,

    Interesting stuff, as always. One questionn: What about when the 460 or so Fukushimas will start spewing ionizing radiation basically forever after a collapse? Nicole is the specialist, yet she doesn't mention that in your discussion. 

    Also, what about the accelerating global warming and the tipping points in dynamic systems? 

    Thanks

     

    • RE says:

      Well, first off one hopes that before we suffer complete collapse that some decent plan for disposal of Nuke Puke is undertaken.  My idea is to glassify it, encase it in Boring Capsules and drop it in a subduction zone in the Marianas Trench where it will migrate its way into the mantle and then down to the core of the earth with all the rest of the radioactive material down there which warms the earth from the inside out.

      However, even if not undertaken, the increased ionizing radiation probably isn't completely deadly, for instance if you look at the neighborhoods around Fukushima or Chernobyl, they aren't total Dead Zones.  This within a few miles of such a disaster.  So I don't think this will kill off everyone, just increase cancer rates and child mortality and so forth.

      Far as accelerated Global Cooking is concerned, if you look at the graphs, no matter how much Carbon is released in any given time period, it plateaus out around 10C above the current average.  There would still be livable zones in the upper latitudes and upper altitudes.  Population would suffer an extreme knockdown, but extinction unlikely for quite some time in this scenario.  There are also ways to adapt to a much hotter climate, our ancestors managed it during the PETM as burrowing moles living underground.

      Homo Sap is a very adaptable species.  We are bound for an extreme knockdown event here, a "bottleneck" much like the bottleneck that occured after Toba blew off, when only 10,000 Human Souls or 1000 breeding pairs were left.  That little crew of people ballooned up to 7B here today.  It doesn't take many to make it through the Zero Point and SURVIVE.

      Will we go extinct at some point?  Absolutely, it is a guarantee.  Even best case scenario we only have 300M years left before the Sun is producing too much radiation from fusing Helium.  The question is one of timelines, and to completely snuff out Homo Sap is going to take some time.  Meanwhile you figure out how to adapt and you live, or you die first.
