  1. Caught her on Kim Hill, Saturday. Seems the most lucid, informed analyst of the current state-of-play I have yet experienced. Conflates big money — ‘the system’ — renewable energy reality, nuclear power and bottom-up sustainability into a tightly-argued, refreshingly direct and down-to-earth scenario for future-survival. The outlook is bad indeed. Yet, as she puts is so succinctly, we are surrounded here in Aotearoa with a “large moat”. Which means that the possibilities for surviving the approaching global meltdown actually seem viable. Akin to Cuba’s community response to the American economic embargo some ten/twenty years (?) ago. A clear-sighted and hands-on first division intellectual who has done her homework. Unmissable.
