  1. Nice overview creating a broad range of lifestyle options for the solar punk’ community. David’s explanation from wikipedia was not that audible so here it is, for the boomers like me who have not heard of it!
    “A Solarpunk Manifesto was published in 2019 that describes solarpunk as “a movement in speculative fiction, art, fashion, and activism that seeks to answer and embody the question ‘what does a sustainable civilization look like, and how can we get there?'”

    “Solarpunk is a literary and artistic movement that envisions and works toward actualizing a sustainable future interconnected with nature and community. The “solar” represents solar energy as a renewable energy source and an optimistic vision of the future that rejects climate doomerism, while the “punk” refers to the countercultural, post-capitalist, and decolonial enthusiasm for creating such a future.”

    I appreciated the distinction of individual, household, and community scale of permaculture application.
