95% of our food is dependent on oil through energy

"Few if any communities - including those that have initiated worthwhile projects - will be prepared for the shocks of high fuel prices and fuel shortages.."

"Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale. What we are convinced of is this: (a) if we wait for the government, it'll be too little, too late; (b) if we act as individuals, it'll be too little; but (c) if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time"

Resilience: The ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune; buoyancy; the ability to absorb shocks. "It appears that the time available for adaptation is probably far too short to enable needed work to be accomplished. Meanwhile, the financial solvency crisis initiated by the US subprime mortgage fiasco threatens to obliterate trillions of dollars of investment capital, impeding whatever efforts might be undertaken toward energy conversion. Thus few if any communities - including those that have initiated worthwhile projects - will be prepared for the shocks of high fuel prices and fuel shortages that will inevitably follow in the coming years. What to do? ....crisis equals opportunity - for those who are prepared to seize the day. Unless sensible plans to manage disaster are formulated and put forward now, the opportunity afforded by crisis will be hijacked by a familiar cast of characters. " Richard Heinberg (More)
