It Can Be Done: How Local Communities Are Transitioning to a New, Sustainable Economy

New reports on climate change portend a grim future. Our use of fossil fuels seems to have no end in sight. Climate change deniers claim that 95% of climate scientists who know the planet is warming are somehow hysterical and deluded. Oil and gas companies assume our energy supplies are limitless.

It can be dizzying to think about what it will take to reverse global warming and survive without oil. But a growing movement worldwide suggests that now is a good time to adapt our lifestyles toward self-sufficiency and sustainability.

Pioneering British environmentalist Rob Hopkins has founded the “International Transition Town Movement” through which he promotes what he calls a “transition response” in communities readying themselves for a world without oil and creating a new economy that is based on efficiency and sustainability.

GUEST: Rob Hopkins has written several books including The Transition Handbook: From Oil Dependency to Local Resilience and his latest, The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World.
