The ecology of our planet and its living things has suffered greatly during the age of fossil fuels.
Fossil fuels are a finite resource; the age of consumption enabled by fossil fuels is drawing to a close.
Alternative energy sources such as solar and wind cannot fully replace fossil fuels nor maintain a consumerist civilization.
Together we are responsible for our own levels of consumption; together we are responsible for creating a lower-energy fut...

    1. 1. Global Dependency to Local Resilience<br />
    2. 2. transition story.<br />2006<br />2005<br />Rob Hopkins<br />Rob Hopkins<br />“Inherent within the challenges of peak oil and climate change is an extraordinary opportunity to reinvent, rethink and rebuild the world around us.”<br />8000 people<br />3000 people<br />
    3. 3. transition handbook.<br />2008<br />Peak Oil<br />Climate Change<br />Relocalization<br />Psychological Effects<br />Permaculture<br />12 Steps<br />Collective Wisdom<br />Reskilling<br />Malcolm Gladwell<br />Malcolm Gladwell<br />“Look at the world around you. It may seem like an immovable implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push – in just the right place – it can be tipped.”<br />The Tipping Point<br />
    4. 4. climate change.<br />James Hansen<br />James Hansen<br />“We have at most 10 years – not ten years to decide upon action, but ten years to alter fundamentally the trajectory of global greenhouse gas emissions.”<br />Director Goddard Institute for Space Studies at NASA<br />
    5. 5. peak oil.<br />Richard Heinberg<br />Richard Heinberg<br />“It is quite likely that the time interval before the global peak occurs will be briefer than the period required for societies to adapt themselves painlessly to a different energy regime.”<br />
    6. 6. r.o.i. vs. emissions.<br />Ted Trainer<br />Ted Trainer<br />“To save the planet, we do not need miraculous technical breakthroughs, or vast amounts of capital. Essentially we need a radical change in our thinking and behavior.”<br />
    7. 7. renewables won’t save us.<br />
    8. 8. western society is addicted to oil.<br />James<br />Kunstler<br />James<br />Kunstler<br />“The age of fossil fuels is about to end. There is no replacement for them at hand. These facts are poorly understood by the global population preoccupied with the thrum of daily life, but tragically, too, by the educated classes in the United States, who continue to be by far the greatest squanderers of fossil fuel.”<br />By 2012, surplus oil production capacity could entirely disappear, and as early as 2015, the shortfall in output could reach nearly 10 MBD.<br />
    9. 9. energy descent.<br />The challenge of global climate change makes a shift away from fossil fuels necessary for planetary survival.<br />Peak energy production means that the transition is inevitable.<br />Our only choice is whether to proactively undertake the transition now—or react to events later.<br />Michael Brownlee<br />Michael Brownlee<br />“The Long Emergency is the end of childhood for us. And as humanity passes through this threshold to adulthood will be determined by us, and by other who are gathering in meetings like this all over the country and all over the planet.”<br />
    10. 10. energy descent scenarios.<br />David Holmgren<br />David Holmgren<br />“The real issue of our age is how we make a graceful and ethical descent.”<br />Permaculture: Principles and PathwaysBeyond Sustainability<br />
    11. 11. relocalization.<br />Local production of food, energy and goods.<br />Gary Snyder<br />Gary Snyder<br />“The most radical thing you can do is stay home.”<br />Local development of currency, government and culture.<br />Reducing consumption while improving social and environmental conditions.<br />
    12. 12. resilience indicators.<br />FOOD<br />LOCALLY USED MATERIALS<br />LOCALLY MANUFACTURED ESSENTIALS<br />LOCALLY EMPLOYED<br />PARKING VS. LAND<br />mke<br />BUSINESSES & PRODUCTS<br />
    13. 13. prioritization. <br />Michael Brownlee<br />Michael Brownlee<br />“Economic development, powered by cheap oil, has chewed up farmlands, devastated forests, made dead zones out of oceans, dried up aquifers, and has spewed vast quantities of toxins into our atmosphere, into our precious water supplies, fouling our biosphere – not to mention our own bodies.”<br />Great Unleashing<br />Sandpoint, ID<br />
    14. 14. perma-essentials.<br />Graham Bell<br />Graham Bell<br />“Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of the landscape with people…”<br />
    15. 15. transition assumptions.<br />Life with less energy is inevitable, and it is better to plan for it than be taken by surprise.<br />John L. Petersen<br />John L. Petersen<br />Many skills for self-sufficiency have been forgotten and must be relearned.<br />“In the face of almost certain uncertainty, our job is to rise to the occasion, to evolve…we will probably become some new kind of human at the end of it all-it is that big and that important.”<br />We need to act collectively and we need to act now.<br />By unleashing the collective genius of the community we can design ways of living that are more enriching, satisfying and connected.<br />

    18. 18. January 2009<br />1st HUB Meeting<br />Rob Hopkins<br />Rob Hopkins<br />“Would you want it any other way? Would you want someone to come I with the answer and work it all our for you? It’s such an adventure working all these things out!”<br />
    19. 19. March 2009<br />Birth of 1st Visible Manifestation<br />Rob Hopkins<br />Rob Hopkins<br />“The future with less oil [and less energy] could be preferable to the present, if we are able to engage with enough imagination and creativity sufficient in abundance of the peak…”<br />

    32. 32. December 2010<br />TM Vision and Mission<br /> <br />Founding Truths<br />This we believe:<br /><ul><li>We have become dependent upon fossil fuels in all aspects of our lives.
    33. 33. The ecology of our planet and its living things has suffered greatly during the age of fossil fuels.
    34. 34. Fossil fuels are a finite resource; the age of consumption enabled by fossil fuels is drawing to a close.

    37. 37. Powering down is necessary, inevitable, and can increase our overall well-being as we come together to produce a just and sustainable world.</li></ul> <br />Vision:<br />This we hope for:<br />Imagine a resilient and self-sufficient Milwaukee comprised of a diverse array of local communities, populated by neighbors working side by side to produce our own low-energy abundance.  Envision a time when instead of striving separately to acquire more than we need, we have joined together to restore each other and the earth, achieving a just and peaceful community for today and a regenerative way of living for tomorrow and thereafter.<br /> <br />Mission:<br />This we will do:<br />Transition Milwaukee is part of a global movement based on permaculture principles and the awareness of resource depletion and ecological devastation.  It empowers people and their communities to create local responses to converging environmental, energy, and economic challenges.<br />We will unleash our collective genius by educating and supporting each other, inspiring a network of neighborhood initiatives and work groups dedicated to building and fostering local resilience and community self-sufficiency as we progress towards sustainable practices.<br />
