This Small Japanese Town is Modeling Zero Waste for the World

Shareable Magazine - January 13, 2016 - 09:54

What would a Zero Waste world look like and how do we get there?

One small Japanese town is showing the world that Zero Waste begins with a community-wide commitment to reduce waste.

Kamikatsu, a town of 1,700, wants to become the country’s first Zero Waste community by 2020. At this point, it’s well on its way, recycling 80 percent of its waste, with the remaining 20 percent going to a landfill.

Arthur Berman: Why The Price Of Oil Must Rise

Chris Martenson - January 10, 2016 - 14:09

Geologist Arthur Berman explains why today's low oil prices are not here to stay, something investors and consumers alike should be very aware of. The crazy-low prices we're currently experiencing are due to an oversupply created by geopolitics and (historic) easy credit, not by sustainable economics.

And when the worm turns, we are more likely than not to experience a sudden supply shortfall, jolting prices viciously higher. This will be a situation not soon resolved, as the lag time for new production to come on-line will be much longer than the world wants.
