6. transition us update
What a year it's been: revolutions, protests, financial crises, high oil prices, a tsunami, massive floods, record droughts,...and all the many personal stories behind these headline events. PCI readers know that we're experiencing the effects of overshoot on a finite planet. But the mainstream narrative is still focused on a return to economic growth at any and all costs—literally. Our work is therefore more urgent than ever.
Together, with your support, we've punched above our weight in 2011, and we want to do even more in 2012. The first item on the agenda is our new customizable presentation—You Are Here: The Oil Journey— that you can deliver in your community. Following shortly will be the release of Michael Shuman's new book Local Dollars, Local Sense: How to Shift Your Money from Wall Street to Main Street and Achieve Real Prosperity, just the first in a series of Community Resilience Guides. There's so much more, and we need your support. If you haven't done so already, and can pitch in with a contribution, please donate here.
Thanks again for your help this year in spreading the word, and giving us feedback and ideas. Our very best wishes to you and yours for the holidays.
From all of us at Post Carbon Institute.
