A predicament is something that you have to deal with but cannot solve in the sense that you can implement something that will make it go away.  Both climate change and peak oil are predicaments for humans and not problems that can be solved.  They…See More

Hi Juliet!  Really sweet group profile pic! I know you'e one of the twog folks creating this Member page!

It might be helpful to have listed somewhere the names direct links to the personal TW site of each Twog member, and for historic purposes, also list the Twig and links to their personal TW site.   I'll add more info to the recent Blog post later...I'm hoping other folks will take the time to respond.
