The Transition Timeline: For a Local, Resilient Future (Paperback)Shaun Chamberlin (author)
- Not available
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, lowerenergy world.
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 rapidlyspreading movement addressing these challenges, and it needs you.

What we get with The Transition Timeline is a map of the landscape we have to find out a way through .... Someone has got the key characteristics of the landscape drawn out. This is what we have to make sense of - not in the distant future, but right now."-- David Fleming, author of "Energy and the Common Purpose", director of The Lean Economy Connection
Here it is: the map and timeline of how to save our world and ourselves. Whether we WILL take up these suggestions as scheduled is a question for the cynics and the dreamers to debate. For us realists, the only relevant questions are, Where do we start?, and Will you join us?-- Richard Heinberg, author of "Peak Everything", Senior Fellow of the Post Carbon Institute
