The Transition Timeline lightens the fear of our uncertain future providing a map of what we are facing and the different pathways available to us It describes four possible scenarios for the UK and world over the next twenty years ranging from Denial in which we reap the consequences of failing to acknowledge and respond to our environmental challenges to the Transition Vision in which we shift our cultural assumptions to fit our circumstances and move into a more fulfilling lower energy world br br The practical realistic details of this Transition Vision are examined in depth covering key areas such as food energy demographics transport and healthcare and they provide a sense of context for communities working towards a thriving future The book also provides a detailed and accessible update on climate change and peak oil and the interactions between them including their impacts in the UK present and future Use it Choose your path and then make that future real with your actions individually and with your community As Rob Hopkins outlines in his foreword there is a rapidly spreading movement addressing these challenges and it needs you, No description available, What if the best responses to peak oil and climate change don t come from government but from you and me and the people around us In the best selling The Transition Handbook suggested a model for a community led response to peak oil and climate change Since then the Transition idea has gone viral across the globe from Italian villages and Brazilian favelas to universities and London neighborhoods In contrast to the ever worsening stream of information about climate change the economy and resource depletion Transition focuses on solutions on community scale responses on meeting new people and on having fun br br The Transition Companion picks up the story today drawing on the experience of one of the most fascinating experiments under way in the world It tells inspiring tales of communities working for a future where local economies are valued and nurtured where lower energy use is seen as a benefit and where enterprise creativity and the building of resilience have become cornerstones of a new economy br br The first part discusses where we are now in terms of resilience and vulnerability in the face of rising oil prices climate change and economic challenge It presents a vision of the future if we do not address these issues and how things might change if we start to do so The book then looks in detail at the process a community in transition goes through calling on the experience of those who have already embarked on this journey These examples show how much can be achieved when people harness energy and imagination to create projects that will make their communities more resilient The Transition Companion combines practical advice the tools needed to start and maintain a Transition initiative with numerous inspiring stories from local groups worldwide, No description available
