Transition Town Austin

Hello, Central Texas! (Is this thang on?) Howdy y’all!

Now don’t get me wrong. I like the people who have been showing up at the early meetings of Transition Town Austin. But it’s not enough.

We need to see a critical mass of upbeat, creative and technically adept folks. Valuable as local production is, the transition to a post-fossil-fuel world isn’t just about turnip farming.

That special Austin energy is just the kick in the butt that the Transition movement needs. Let’s see if we can’t make it happen.

A great opportunity to kick off a bright green approach to Austin’s future happens next week at a reorganization meeting for Transition Austin.

I made y’all a little web page to make the case. Go have a look.

Check out the recent coverage of the transition movement in the NYTimes magazine. And please come join the meetup on the evening of Tuesday the 12th.


As far as I can tell, the excellent logo appears in only one undistinguished place on the net: www.green-e.org/news/Green-eNewsSummer2007.html The anonymous artist deserves better.
