What would our kūpuna (ancestors) do about how vulnerable we are here in Hawai‘i to oil supply problems? They were wise and practical people. How would they have used our resources? We are nearing the time when we will have used up half of the world’s oil, and the remaining half will be increasingly hard to tap.
In this book, I discuss 1) Growing up in a Hawaiian family and how that shaped my thinking, 2) Watching as the price of oil—and our farming costs—started to skyrocket and impact everything and everybody, and 3) Specific areas to focus on right now (especially the Thirty Meter Telescope and geothermal energy) and how they will make Hawai‘i Island more sustainable for our descendants, so they don’t have to leave the islands to have a better life.
We, too, are somebody’s ancestors. It’s time to make wise decisions for the benefit of our future generations.
