Life Sustaining Organization, A Design Guide, by Michael Sales, Ed.D. and Anika Ellison Savage

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(Please click on red links below)

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Please show your support for Renewable Energy by visiting-signing-sharing Renewable-FIT For Sunshine State!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

I am very fortunate to have started Sun Is The Future, for it has given me the wonderful opportunity to meet a great variety of people possessing talents, experience, and passionate energy that is seen in the interview with Michael Sales, one of the authors we have met in the World Future Society Conference 2013 that took place in Chicago, IL at the Hilton Chicago Hotel during July 19-21,  2013. Mr. Sales co-authored the book, “Life Sustaining Organizations, A Design Guide“, with Anika Ellisons Savage. In this book,  some of the important components for any organization to become a life sustaining organization are:

  1. intense competition to attract creative  talents
  2. how to build the organization wholistically so to be able to act as a beacon and magnet for these creative talents
  3. successful organizations’ attention to aesthetics in all details
  4. results oriented organizations that are regenerative (focus on economic solvency and being competitive in the market place).


The structural dynamics laid out in this book includes the methodology that would help any managers/owners and potential managers of any organizations to prepare for a variety of possible futures. If you are like me, one who believes in preparing for the worst and hopes for the best, this book will be a fantastic guide for any life sustaining organizations to be ready regardless how the future will unfold.

As we journey through the transition into our Renewable/Solar Energy future, we have met many current and future  managers/owners who want to establish  life sustaining organizations.  So, those of you who are interested in getting this book, please go to www.amazon.com or www.artofthefuture.com and look for the book, Life Sustaining Organizations, A Design Guide, by Michael Sales and Anika Ellison Savage.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Updates on our Solar-FIT For Sunshine State petition: 163 signatures strong. We need more! Please help us to spread more sunshine by signing this petition and sharing it with others. It is our shared responsibility to move toward the renewable energy age and Sunshine is the cleanest, healthiest, and least war-prone way to go!
_________________________________________________________________________________________

For the sixth episode of this series, we are fortunate to have  #Mayor of San Francisco, #Edwin M. Lee, from the first international “#Pathways To 100% Renewable Energy” #conference in San Francisco on April 16, 2013. He reminds us the importance of planning in preparing for future cities, be it in USA,  in China, or any part of the planet earth. He reminds us the importance of having goals and getting it/them done in this process of preparation. Below, we have Mayor Edwin M. Lee:


So, find out what are the goals of your city in preparing for the transition into our renewable/solar energy future. Talk to your mayor(s). If there is none, perhaps it is time to roll up your sleeves and take some actions, as I have just emailed my mayor in asking him to view this series of talks and start the conversation.

Pathway To 100% Renewables Is Not A Pipedream (3)

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(Please click on red links below)

As we continue on with our coverage of the first #International Conference on “Pathways To 100% Renewable Energy” in #San Francisco on April 16, 2013, I’d like to share with you the talk by Stanford Professor  Mark Z. Jacobson during this historical event.  #Professor Jacobson presents what our problem is:

  1. #Air pollution kills 2.5-3 million people prematurely worldwide each year.
  2. #Arctic sea ice may disappear in 10-20 years. Global temperatures are rising at a faster rate than any time in history.
  3. #Increasing energy demand is increasing pollution, #global warming, and #energy prices.
  4. #Higher energy prices lead to economic, social, and #political instability.

These drastic problems require drastic solutions. According to Professor Jacobson’s research analysis, the recommended solution would lie in WWS (Wind, Water, Solar) and not in nuclear, coal, or natural gas, biomass. Here are his explanations, below:

For a different and longer (about an hour length) version of Professor Jacobson’s presentation, recall one of our previous posts in July 31, 2011, with Professor Jacobson.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Professor/Director Jacobson has sat on the #U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy #(EERE) Federal Advisory Committee (ERAC) to the U.S. Secretary of Energy.  He received a B.S. in Civil Engineering with distinction, an A.B. in Economics with distinction, and an M.S. in Environmental Engineering from Stanford University, in 1988, an M.S. in Atmospheric Sciences in 1991 and a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences in 1994 from UCLA and has been on the faculty at Stanford since 1994.  His work relates to the development and application of numerical models to understand better the effects of energy systems and vehicles on climate and air pollution and the analysis of renewable energy resources. He has published two textbooks and 110 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles. His 2000 finding that black carbon, the main component of soot particles, may be the second-leading cause of global warming after carbon dioxide provided the original scientific basis for five recent U.S. proposed laws on black carbon. He received the 2005 American Meteorological Society Henry G. Houghton Award for “significant contributions to modeling aerosol chemistry and to understanding the role of soot and other carbon particles on climate.” In 2005, his group developed the first wind map of the world from data at the height of modern turbines. He recently co-authored a cover article in Scientific American with Dr. Mark DeLucchi of U.C. Davis and two more detailed analyses in Energy Policy on how to power the world with renewable energy.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Personally, in my humble opinion,  #solar energy will one day be recognized as the best and cheapest source of renewable energy, in terms of cleanliness, health, cost, and security. Until solar energy will become the leader of the pack, I will continue  to bring forward evidences to convince you all of this future truth/fact.  Until then, it’s time for all of us earthlings  to find our individual spots in the #renewable energy age.  Remain hopeful and optimistic! The future will be bright!
