I just found this video by Daniel Pinchbeck and was pleasantly surprised to see earthbag building being demonstrated. It’s just a small segment in the film, but still it’s good to see the word getting out. Text below is their description of the film.
“Storyline: 2012: Time For Change is a documentary feature that presents ways to transform our unsustainable society into a regenerative planetary culture. This can be achieved through a personal and global change of consciousness and the systemic implementation of ecological design.”
“2012 is a feature-length documentary, directed by Joao Amorim of Curious Pictures and featuring Daniel Pinchbeck, the bestselling author of “2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl” (Penguin, 2006). In the style of “An Inconvenient Truth”, “What the Bleep Do We Know”, and “Waking Life”, our film explores ideas about what the immediate future may hold, symbolized by the myths and prophecies of the Mayan culture of Mexico. Interviews with design scientists, anthropologists, physicists such as Dean Radin, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Nassim Haramein John Todd and Paul Stamets and celebrities such as Sting, Ellen Page and Gilberto Gil. 2012 combines film and animation in an innovative way, taking us on a journey through our own evolution.”

Have you watched any of the Zeitgeist films or researched The Venus Project? If so, what are your thoughts?
I’ve watched all the Zeitgeist films with mixed feelings. I agree with much of what they’re saying. Lots of great ideas are presented, but their solution side of the story is rather weak in my opinion. The Venus Project seems very wishful thinking/utopian/futuristic/less than likely.
I don’t have all the answers, but I see major changes on the horizon — possibly widespread depopulation and a shift toward simpler ways of living out of necessity. Having a debt-free place to live, local food production, sustainable energy, water collection, learning to do with less, developing practical skills, and preparing for the inevitable change all seem prudent.
