Keith Farnish is a writer, volunteer and activist who, in a former life, was economically viable. He lives in Southern Scotland with his wife and two children, making, growing, organising, listening, talking and being.
He has been involved in environmental issues for many years, initially specialising in energy supply, transport and climate change, and now as a campaigner against the system we call Industrial Civilization. He is continually striving to minimise his impact on the natural world but, more importantly, accepts that what we now take for granted will no longer be around soon -- we have to take back control of our lives and our communities, and bring down the system that is killing the natural world.
Keith founded The Earth Blog , intended as a source of inspiration for people who want to be challenged, and offering uncompromising solutions to difficult problems. He also founded The Unsuitablog -- an anti-greenwashing website and co-founded Green Seniors alongside Joyce Emery of Iowa, USA.
His first book, called "Time's Up! An Uncivilized Solutions To A Global Crisis" was out in Spring 2009; and is also available to read (for free!)online. His second book, "Underminers" was completed in October 2012 and, again, put online for free in the expectation that no publisher would be brave enough to touch it. It is being released by New Society Publishers in September 2013.
