Steps/requirements for becoming an Earthship Agent and/or hosting an Earthship sanctioned event or build.
1. Graduate from the Earthship Academy.
graduation requirements and info may be found here: http://earthship.com/school
2. Propose your event or build to Earthship Biotecture.
3. Negotiate a percentage of revenue to be shared with Earthship Biotecture.
(this is largely to compensate EB for time spent to digest information on the event and post on the EB website as we are getting a large number of these requests)
A few years back we all drove big cars. Those were the days of the big Lincolns and Chryslers, and Cadillacs. Even the Chevys and the Fords were big. They were made with thick metal and they were heavy and big. When the energy crunches began, and fuel prices started to rise a few brave companies put out compact cars. They were ridiculed at first. They were called “toys” and “unsafe”. The first models of compact cars were loosing issues in terms of profits but they illustrated that you can still get there in a smaller car... and get there a lot cheaper. The fuel prices never stopped going up. Sure they would take a dive here and there but the over all graph on fuel prices was up. So it is now with housing. Housing has been big and inefficient for a long time. Energy shortages and dwindling natural resources are making us look at smaller, more planet dynamic housing. The Earthship Simple Survival Concept is our answer to this issue.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to run into Michael Reynolds, the Garbage Warrior, this is an excellent introduction. We wanted to interview Michael as he really is, a visionary looking toward an uncertain future but tuning into what we need to do in the present moment.

Trains are a good thing.
They gather up people and take them to places in a very efficient way.
Trains have opened up continents and developed countries.
There is nothing really wrong with trains...
except they can only go where there is track.
If there is no track, the train does not go... it is not possible.
The evolution of humanity on this planet has developed its own track...
belief systems, religions, economies, political regimes, laws, codes, regulations...
all have become “tracks” to our future.
They have opened up continents and developed countries.
There is a problem...
a changing planet and a growing population have created the need to go to a place
that the tracks can’t deliver us to.
There is a new frontier now...
evolution beyond the tracks.
Description: "A Coming of Wizards" is about finding and moving toward our potential. And it is the thinking from which the whole earthship concept has evolved. Based on Michael Reynolds' experience with four wizards part one calls forth an appropriate state of mind from which to perceive the "Wizard Information." In part two and three Reynolds moves beyond the human condition toward reaching our potential.
As a citizen of the earth...
I fully have the right...
to harvest water from the sky
to grow my own food in my own home
to harvest energy from the sun and the wind
to contain and reuse my own waste on my own land
to make my shelter comfortable without the use of fossil fuels
and to harvest what others throw away to construct my own home
I am willing to die to defend these rights and to spread the knowledge of how to
achieve them to others.
If six billion other people said this as well...
we would transcend the corporations, the governments, and the federal reserve bank.
We, the people, would always survive.
Michael Reynolds was the focus of the award-winning film ‘Garbage Warrior’ – a documentary about his 40 year struggle to build sustainable houses.
The Environment Show recently interviewed Reynolds as part of our new series on environment leaders. That interview is coming up soon. In the meantime we’ve found this 1 minute video* to give you an introduction to the man.
Plus we found so many great Reynolds quotes in our research, we thought we’d compile them for good keeping. (We couldn’t bear to let them get away.)

WHY IT IS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT FOR HUMANITY TO EVOLVE SIGNIFICANTLY ENOUGH TO SURVIVE A CHANGING PLANET
Bergen Architectural School - BAS - Bergen, Norway - December 7, 2008
We (Earthship Biotecture) were asked to help establish a force to retro fit the old nine story concrete agricultural grain silo building, home of the architectural school in Bergen, Norway. Our objectives were as follows...
"THE DANGERS OF ALLOWING THE PURSUIT OF SOMEWHAT IMPERFECT SUSTAINABLE CARBON ZERO HOUSING AS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE IN CERTAIN 'POCKETS OF FREEDOM' THROUGHOUT THE LANDS ARE NOT NEARLY AS GREAT AS THE DANGER OF NOT PURSUING IT AT ALL."
- Michael Reynolds
I just read this executive order copy from the governor of california, Arnold Schwarzenegger about Sea Levels rising, etc.
It is not out of the question that this method be used to move forward in todays world. It is clear that nothing tangible will happen here in Copenhagen between all the countries to effect climate ...change.
