Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop discuss working on the Better World Book that will be coming out as a Kickstarter
after the first of the year. Paul has been posting drafts of some chapters of the book on various locations and forums in the permies.com site and this podcast covers replacing petroleum.
Paul feels like most of the things that he talks about are pretty basic but occasionally he is reminded that some people
do need to hear the things he discusses.
Paul spends the first portion of the podcast reading the "Replacing Petroleum with People" chapter from the Better World Book that he is writing with Shawn.
Paul pauses during the chapter read to relate an experience
he had when he was younger working on a commercial farm driving Pea
Harvesting machinery which then segues into a brief discussion of the amount of corn that is used in current food system. Paul also talks about the heavy subsidies for petroleum used in farming and corn production.
Paul reads the rest of the chapter and then Paul and Shawn then ask for feedback from the Patreon supporters.
