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.
