The Danish Island of Samsø is world famous for being a CO2-neutral community. Søren Hermansen - The director of The Energy Academy - showed us the alternative energy sources on offer to the islanders. Take this example as a microcosm of possibility and scale it up to national and then international scales.
Nuclear and gas generation is a symptom of a chronic lack of imagination and centralised energy policies which benefit the few and endanger the balance of the earth. We reject the non-renewable pathway.
We visited Samsø in a full length feature in the Summer 2010 issue Permaculture 64.
