On May 12th we released Will Natural Gas Fuel America in the 21st Century?. Written by PCI Fellow J. David Hughes, the detailed report argues that the natural gas industry has propagated dangerously false claims about natural gas production supply, cost and environmental impact. Our report calls into question the prevalent assumption that we have access to over a century of cheap and easy natural gas.
Will Natural Gas Fuel America in the 21st Century has been requested by local, state and federal agencies, media and concerned citizens worldwide. Since it’s release less than three weeks ago, the report has been downloaded over 11,000 times.
Today we are releasing three supplements to the report that we hope you’ll find of interest and value:
Agriculture and Natural Gas” by PCI Fellow Michael Bomford
Problems and Opportunities with Natural Gas as a Transportation Fuel” by PCI Adviser Richard Gilbert and PCI Fellow Anthony Perl
Public Health Concerns of Shale Gas Production” by PCI Fellows Brian Schwartz, MD, and Cindy Parker, MD.
Whenever our tiny organization meets with success like this—when we succeed at changing the conversation despite the overwhelming firepower of the fossil fuel industries—we’re reminded that it’s our growing pool of peers and supporters who do so much of the real work. Without your generous contributions and ardent networking on our behalf, we’d make little progress. And so, once again—thank you.

transition US update

A monthly update from the US regional hub of the international Transition movement.

Garden challenge The 350 Home & Garden Challenge is a wrap! In total, over 1,300 actions in 217 different towns and 36 different states (and four countries) were registered, and while it's challenging to quantify the overall impacts of these actions and collaborations, we do know that our communities are that much more alive and thriving as a result. For some, this is certainly just the beginning. Check out photos, videos and stories, including a great video of the West Pasco Habitat for Humanity Permaculture Garden!

Check out our new website digs, read the May Roundup of What's Happening in the World of Transition for more and find an initiative near you.

Coming up on our calendar: Trainings in Columbus, OH and Chicago, IL, as well as special webinars' on Storytelling, Peacemaking, Culture Repair (3 part series), and Children and Transition: Raising Children in Changing Times (2 Part Series).
