We are living in an age of unprecedented change; it will not happen within our grandchildren’s lifetime, it will not happen within our children’s, it will happen within ours. The time to act is now.
Climate Change is a reality that makes the reduction of carbon emissions essential.
Peak Oil makes it inevitable.
Global oil, gas and coal production is predicted to irreversibly decline in the next 10 to 20 years, and severe climate changes are already taking effect around the world. The repercussions are likely to be catastrophic if we do not prepare.
“Our central survival task for the decades ahead, as individuals and as a species, must be to make a transition away from the use of fossil fuels – and to do this as peacefully, equitably, and intelligently as possible.”
Richard Heinberg, author and activist
“There is scientific agreement that we must cut the greenhouse gas emissions driving Climate Change by at least 80% by 2050. The Government has legally committed the UK to this goal, and to achieve it will require urgent change across all human activities and industrial sectors.”
The Transition Movement is an effective way to engage individuals and communities to take the action that is required to mitigate the effects of Peak Oil, Climate Change and the economic crisis. Transition efforts are designed to result in a life that is more fulfilling, more balanced and more socially connected than the one we live today.
