An exciting announcement, solarpunk
I've been keeping quiet about this, but I can finally share!
My friend and I are officially contracted for a book from the West Virginia University Press's series Salvaging the Anthropocene. Our book, Almanac for the Anthropocene: A Compendium of Solarpunk Futures, will focus primarily on collecting practical, substantive applications of #solarpunk thought.

Anybody know anybody? Maybe @HalvarFlake or @joernchen ? Paid work of course. California or Berlin are easiest but I'll get on a f'ing plane and bring it to Moscow if necessary.
