Most of us avoid thinking about what happens when oil runs out (or becomes prohibitively expensive), but The Transition Handbook shows how the inevitable and profound changes ahead can have a positive outcome. These changes can lead to the rebirth of local commuities that will grow more of their own food, generate their own power, and build their own homes using local materials. They can also encourage the development of local currencies, keeping money in the local area.
If your community has not yet become a Transition Initiative, this upbeat guide offers you the tools to get started.
