Black Swans and The U.S future: The challenge of resilience

On April 7, 2011, I attended a presentation on the Black Swan event and the speaker was David W.Orr[Financial Analysis,he also wrote the book,"Black Swans and The U.S future: The challenge of resilience"]. He was talking about this event and also what was being effected by it (cities,the grid,internet,food system,water system, waste system etc.) There were many reasons-he explained. It is based on laws of economics two-four years can be made to work with those of evolution. He was explaining the atmospheric carbon dioxide and how it is affecting us. Then, David started talking about ecological design revolution... It is sustainable agriculture and forestry, architecture and green building, whole systems engineering, urban design, biommicry and materials. After explaining this points, David started explaining the goals.
