Eco Shock Podcast well worth listening to

I'm glad I listened to this podcast. The first segment is with Shaun Chamberlin, author of "The Transition Timeline." He discusses the Transition Movement in Britain and does a great job summarizing the positive aspects of transition.


The promo for the podcast:
DARK OPTIMISM How do we handle Peak Oil AND climate change? Shaun Chamberlin from UK Transition Towns, energy writer Kurt Cobb, plus
Richard Heinberg on renewable hope, with Lester Brown.

You know we are going to run out of civilization's life-blood: fossil fuels. And if we burn what's left, the climate will tip into a mass
extinction event. Meanwhile, barking madness seems to be the only growth
industry. Is it time for more pills, booze, or end-time religion?

Our first guest says there may be some hope left. Shaun Chamberlin's blog is called "dark optimism" - and that may be as good as it gets.
Shaun is part of the "transition movement" in Britain. He's the author
of the new book "The Transition Timeline, for a local resilient future,"
...and, part of an upcoming report for the British Parliament, on a
scheme to give everyone an energy quota.

"The key thing is to follow your passions...'Don't ask what the world needs, but ask what makes you come alive, and go do that, cause what the world needs is people who've come alive...Don't give up on what your passion is about'"

Yes, great talk by Shaun Chamberlin from Great Britian.
