After 10 months of doing this daily, without a break or a day off, I’m experiencing economic burn out; my symptoms are exhaustion, terseness, and grumpiness. I need to prioritize my world a bit. Mostly I want to begin the Zero-Carbon Car conversion of our 10-year old Subaru (she has 150k miles on her and one very tired engine). Marsh has some painting for us to do in the house we built together.
It has truly been a pleasure to contribute to this fine community that Chris has created. I often wish there were a Martenson Island as opposed to a Martenson Cyberblog.
I landed on Chris’s site over a year ago from a link to the environmental chapters of the “Crash Course,” which I received in an email from Buffett’s original investor. It was followed by an email from an ex-governor who also spoke highly of CM’s work on the environment.
The Crash Course was, for me, like a key to the stereogram: putting the picture of the economy hidden below the picture painted by the media into crisp focus. Most of all it explained and then underscored the 3 E’s.
