122 The Transition Companion: Making Your Community More Resilient in Uncertain Times

Hopkins, Rob 1603583920 / 9781603583923 Trade Paperback

What if the best responses to peak oil and climate change don’t come from government, but from you and me and the people around us? In 2008, the best-selling The Transition Handbook suggested a model for a community-led response to peak oil and climate change. Since then, the Transition idea has gone viral across the globe, from Italian villages and Brazilian favelas to universities and London neighborhoods. In contrast to the ever-worsening stream of information about climate change, the economy, and resource depletion, Transition focuses on solutions, on community-scale responses, on meeting new people, and on having fun. The Transition Companion picks up the story today, drawing on the experience of one of the most fascinating experiments under way in the world. It tells inspiring tales of communities working for a future where local economies are valued and nurtured; where lower energy use is seen as a benefit; and where enterprise, creativity, and the building of resilience have become cornerstones of a new economy. The first part discusses where we are now in terms of resilience and vulnerability in the face of rising oil prices, climate change, and economic challenge. It presents a vision of the future if we do not address these issues, and how things might change if we start to do so. The book then looks in detail at the process a community in transition goes through, calling on the experience of those who have already embarked on this journey. These examples show how much can be achieved when people harness energy and imagination to create projects that will make their communities more resilient. The Transition Companion combines practical advice—the tools needed to start and maintain a Transition initiative—with numerous inspiring stories from local groups worldwide.

128 The World Without Us

Weisman, Alan Picador USA 2008 312427905 Illustrated. Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 416 p. Contai 

From The New Yorker Teasing out the consequences of a simple thought experiment what would happen if the human species were suddenly extinguished Weisman has written a sort of pop-science ghost story, in which the whole earth is the haunted house. Among the highlights: with pumps not working, the New York City subways would fill with water within days, while weeds and then trees would retake the buckled streets and wild predators would ravage the domesticated dogs. Texas s unattended petrochemical complexes might ignite, scattering hydrogen cyanide to the winds a mini chemical nuclear winter. After thousands of years, the Chunnel, rubber tires, and more than a billion tons of plastic might remain, but eventually a polymer-eating microbe could evolve, and, with the spectacular return of fish and bird populations, the earth might revert to Eden.

150 Wildwood Wisdom: How to Build a lean-to, find wild food, follow a trail, use an axe, hitch a mule, survive outdoors and much more!

Jaeger, Ellsworth, and Kahn, Lloyd (Introduction by) Shelter Publications 2003 936070129 Illustrated. Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 516 p. Contai 

This comprehensive and beautifully illustrated handbook was written by Ellsworth Jaeger in 1945. Jaeger was a faculty member of the Buffalo Museum of Science and an authority on American Indian lore and camping. Wildwood Wisdom is dedicated not just to the spirit of our ancestral buckskin men, but also to the native Americans who willingly taught the white newcomers the basic necessities of life and survival in this new land. Jaeger spent many summers in the outdoors and led woodcraft groups throughout the country. His book is addressed mainly to campers, with information on clothes and gear, making fires, and a wonderful section on shelters made with handgathered materials. But it can also be read for historical accuracy, a well-researched account of life in America in the 1800s, when survival depended not only on coping with daily perils, but also on one s ability to use wits as well as hands for survival. There s much more on providing life s basics: food, shelter and clothing. How to skin a bear, blaze a trail, cook flapJacks on a flat rock. Plants that are edible, plants that are poisonous, and plants that are medicinal. How to portage a canoe, pack a mule or build a bed in the woods out of willows...wisdom needed for survival in the woods when they were wild. Jaeger wrote this book during the latter part of World War II, when...fear, dishonor, horror, treachery and death filled people s minds. At such a time, he felt, knowing something about this great American folklore was increasingly important to people of this land. At such a time...the serenity and peace of the wilderness were never more dear to the hearts of men. Now, 60 years later, one might say that Jaeger s premise is even more relevant. In these times of great international turmoil, when the earth s very life-sustaining atmosphere is threatened by a multitude of human-generated forces, this tribute to the wisdom of a much less energy-intensive way of life could provide example as well as inspiration
