"Forces are converging very fast that make whether we choose to retain and enhance resilience, rather than just let it crumble, much more than a philosphical discussion....The move towards more localized energy-efficient and productive living arrangements is not a choice; it is an inevitable direction for humanity."
-- From Rob Hopkins'ground-breaking book,
The Tranistion Handbook -- From oil
dependency to local resilence.
