Tribute to Michael Dowd, an Outstanding Teacher

by Bridget K

Michael had a massive influence on me. His communication, research and teaching skills were outstanding. I highly recommend everyone to watch his invaluable teaching videos, and conversations with other scholars and thinkers who were also aware of societal and ecological collapse. Michael taught me that no one is to blame for our predicament. Humans, like all species, if given the opportunity, will consume all available resources, even if this threatens our very existence. Michael helped me to let go of judging others, and attempting to control what I cannot.  I accept the human predicament and focus now on making the most of each day.
