I just watched Lecture 13 where Greenhouse Effect is briefly being discussed. After I watched it, I found this explanation by Dr. Roy W. Spencer, which made it clear to me what Greenhouse Effect is, and also what is not.2013-11-13 at 11:29 am #23703
Thank you Adrian Woods for the book list thread!2013-11-28 at 5:45 am #27291
If I may add (to consolidate the booklist thread), I would like to recommend another book:
– “Silent Spring”, by Rachel Carson. I am currently reading it, but after I started this permaculture course the topics just seemed to have a whole new understanding and a lot in common. The book encompasses (so far I know) the deleteriuos effects of traditional agriculture (with chemical spraying) to the ecosystems. This book is also considered to be amongst the most influential works in sustainability science and policy.
By the way, the other two books that Larry recommended are:
– “Soil and Civilization”, by Edward Hyams
– “Collapse”, by Jared Diamond
For those who want to know more about sustainability (besides permaculture), for more tips of good books on this matter, see:
– “The Top 50 Sustainability Books”, by Wayne visser (University of Cambridge)

I found this resource on a youtube video about calculating the sun’s path. It is a free source calculator and gives a pdf chart for your location. http://solardat.uoregon.edu/SunChartProgram.html2014-12-08 at 4:13 am #55073
101 inspirational permaculture designs for ecologically sound (or eccentric & experimental) gardens, ponds, trellises, food forests, & homesteads. http://imgur.com/a/aTPS82015-02-12 at 10:35 am #56435
How do I get the free ebook on permaculture design fundamentals? I never received it when I signed up, and asking about it on the facebook page only got me banned from commenting?2015-04-04 at 5:50 am #57307
The best books I have read which are really worth buying are:
Apple grower by Michael Phillips
Really comprehensive information if you are interested in fruit tree systems.
Mycellium Running by Paul Stamets
Includes lots of fascinating information and uses of fungi which tends to get not as much coverage as it should in most permaculture systems.
Plants for a future by Ken Fern
Lots of ideas for alternative food plants to grow especially for temperate climates. The database derived from this: pfaf.org is more comprehensive overall so it might be worth giving them a donation instead.
