Can you create a Transition Town in the Republican South? Without dwelling on climate change or Peak Oil, Albert Bates shows us how to move anyone toward localization and food security.
Albert Bates is a former attorney, a designer, biochar expert, author, speaker, and an international and local organizer. Albert has lived at the famous intentional community called "The Farm" in Summertown, Tennessee since 1972. His book "Climate in Crisis" was published back in 1990, with more following, like "The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook" in 2006, and "The Biochar Solution" in 2010.
Dr. Mark Rossland of Simon Fraser University in Canada is one of the pioneers of the sustainable community movement. His first book "Toward Sustainable Communities" became the international handbook for local governments, NGO's and citizens. Now it's out in the 4th edition, "Toward Sustainable Communities: Solutions for Citizens and Their Governments".
Alex gives a quick review of a new movie from the Director of the hit film "Sharkwater" which transformed the campaign against killing sharks for soup.
His movie "Revolution" is just now appearing at film festivals. It's a whole new look at an ocean dying due to climate change - and how youth activists could still save it. We'll have a full interview with filmmaker Rob Stewart next week.
