Transition is all around us- global, local and personal. If you attended Bill McKibbons talk last month you probably, like I did, came away with a better perspective on how our local (Bellingham) Transition actions can make an impact to reduce flooding in communities across the globe. If we can keep the ‘carbon bomb’ in the ground instead of shipping it to China our local actions can make a big global difference. It’s not just about our backyard, it’s about every back yard around the globe.
The TWOG has had its share of transitions too. Laura, Travis, Juliet, Angela and Erica all made changes in their lives that required them to leave the TWOG. We thank all of them for their many contributions in growing the Transition Whatcom community and wish them all the best. I’m sure they will all stay involved in the Transition Movement one way or another. Welcome Emily and Kyler to the TWOG as they add their new energy to the TWOG. Say hello to them at the next TW event you see them at, and thank them in advance for their help in guiding Transition Whatcom.
