|Rob Dietz, a CoHo Ecovillage resident, has coauthored a groundbreaking book receiving widespread praise in the sustainability community. Rob is also a strong speaker and recently presented an overview of his book at the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s annual Town Hall meeting. Rob’s bio and a description of the forming groups follow a review by Noam Chomsky:
|The first steps toward creating a sustainable economy are to acknowledge that “business as usual” isn’t working and to begin to explore outside-the-box solutions. That’s exactly what Enough Is Enough is designed to do. “This is the book we’ve all been waiting for,” OSU’s Kathleen Dean Moore has said of Enough Is Enough. Co-authored by Corvallis’s own Rob Dietz who was the keynote speaker at Town Hall 2013, Enough Is Enough has been receiving much acclaim since its publication in January. Although it addresses some key economic concepts, the book is clearly written for a lay audience, replete with humor, anecdotes, and a well-organized layout that moves the reader from problems to visionary but realistic solutions. Beginning in May, the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition will organize a series of Enough Is Enough discussion groups to help foster exploration of a steady-state economy that is geared to meeting human needs.
