Description - Transition Handbook by Rob Hopkins
Around the world, societies are facing the prospect of a future with dwindling oil reserves, an unstable climate and unpredictable food production. The Transition Handbook provides accounts of how individuals have responded with their local communities to the twin threats of peak oil and climate change. It explains how we can 'transition' from fossil-fuel based communities to ones that are more self-reliant and generate less carbon emissions, and shows how such changes will result in a greater development of local food, local economies, local water harvesting and energy generation - and so create more sustainable communities in the longer term. It includes detailed accounts of transition initiatives in the UK and profiles of Australian and New Zealand initiatives currently underway.
