Re: Tom Waits! And Johnny Cash

Thanks very much both for that. I'd not come across 'The Man Comes Around' before you mentioned it, and am now listening to it for the first time... Love it! I always found Cash's 'The Mercy Seat' to be deeply moving, as well, of course, 'I see a Darkness'

Let's say that the starting point for this thought experiment isn't how to accelerate the recovery after an apocalypse, but how to start completely from scratch on a new world - i.e. you're starting completely from scratch and there aren't any of the resources provided by a prior, advanced civilisat...

Re: Howdy

Hi Mike, thanks for that!
Actually, I've heard of a new FOX TV series called Utopia that's coming out this Fall http://www.fox.com/utopia/ and you might be able to apply for the next series of that? http://utopiatvcasting.com/

Re: Deterioration of Buildings

Good question! The figures I gave in The Knowledge were assuming no-one was up-keeping any of the buildings. After an apocalypse and a severe crash in population, maintenance would cease on the vast majority of edifices and they would deteriorate and degrade with the elements. But of course, if surv...

Re: Hello

Hi mahalonalo, thanks for dropping in. Yes we have been having some problems with spam on the site, but I'm working hard to rectify it.

Re: Alex Weir's CD3WD project

Thanks very much for that Phil - the CD3WD is a really good resource of information. I used the Appropriate Technology Library (ATL) whilst researching for The Knowledge, which shares a lot of the same references with CD3WD, but doesn't seem to be easily available any more - a really pity.

Re: Oil Rigs, perrenial leaks?

Cheers Aaron, I think you raise a very good point. As you say, oil rigs are fitted with multiple fail-safes to try to prevent catastrophic leaks, but would these definitely all work as planned, particularly as the machinery rusts and degrade? It would only take one failure to release a very large oi...
