I am at the fulminating stage: fulminating about how inappropriate our economic system is.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I've been involved in Whatcom County activism for 30 years, particularly in regard to population growth and its effects (because of high levels of consumption) on the environment. Most specifically, it troubles me that humans are aggrandizing for ourselves so much of what other living things need. Rick Dubrow introduced me to the Whatcom Transitions group.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I have skills: I was for 8 years on the Whatcom County Council, I was chairman of the board of directors of the Humane Society; president of the now-defunct Pro-Whatcom, and currently I'm president of the steering committee of Futurewise Whatcom.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Squalicum Lake Road
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
I don't have any suggestions right now.
