Some recent articles by Brand…
• “Environmental Heresies” proposed that environmentalists will change their mind and their behavior about four major subjects in the next ten years—urbanization, population, genetic modification, and nuclear power.
• “City Planet” was a long piece spelling out the surprisingly good news emerging from rampant urbanization—1.3 million people a week, net, moving to cities, most of them in self-organizing “squatter cities” in the developing world.
• “Learning from the Earthquake,” has become the most reprinted and cited thing I’ve written, because it spells out in detail and drama what volunteers actually do in emergencies, and how crucial and under-utilized they are. It has become a textbook case.
