Transition Initiatives

Are Based On Four Key Assumptions
1) That life with dramatically lower energy consumption is inevitable, and that it's better to plan for it than to be taken by surprise.
2) That our settlements and communities presently lack the resilience to enable them to weather the severe energy shocks that will accompany peak oil.
3) That we have to act collectively, and we have to act now.
4) That by unleashing the collective genious of those around us to creatively and proactively design our energy desent, We can build ways of living that are more connected, more enriching and that recognise the biological limits of our planet..
taken from the Handbook of Transition. from oil dependency to local resilience,,
written by Rob Hopkins Founder of the Transition movement.

You may not think that we will ever run out of OIL.!!! But what if we do? what products do manufactures depend on oil, and i think you will be suppressed take farming!!
Without oil they could not grow the crops too feed us all.
But even if oil remains in the ground, very soon it will cost to much to bring it to the surface.
Then how will we heat, our homes grow our food, and run our transport systems.
with Global warming and the need to reduce our Carbon footprint Now is the time too think of new ways to replace our dependence on OIL.

Transition Community, Sustanable Projects

In the Future, due to Climate Change, We need to have Communities that have a low Carbon Footprint, and a sustainable Economy.
We must find ways to develop, Energy,Transport systems that have a very low Carbon Footprint, that does not harm, the Environment or our Health.
Greener, Safer, Healthy commounities, were there are no Landfill sites ,or Incinerater Plants, that only waste resourches.
We must develop alternative systems, that does not depend on Oil or Gas from other Countries.
Communities that are supportive of local busineses , local growers and farmers markets etc.
Working local, but with Global Aims.

We can have a Zero Waste and YES even a Zero-Net Energy Sociate Now if we only follow a few simple rules.
For a Zero Waste Sociate we must follow the Rules of Reduce, Repair, Recycly and Reuse, if the products can't put into one of the above , then they must be redesigned to be ably to be Repaired, Reused or Recycled.
We must cut down o the materials used in the manufacter, and in the Packaging of all products sold.
No longer should we use the words Waste, Rubbish, even words like Landfill and Incinerators should be words of the PAST.!!
Your Waste is now a Valuable Resource, Recycling Waste and Reducing Emissions and protecting our children's FUTURE should be our main GOAL.
A Zero-net ENERGY Property, is one that is CAPABLE of Producing an annual Output of Renewable ENERGY, or MORE than the Energy that is Purchased, on a annual bases.
Energy that can be supplied in a Sustainable maner, which minimized, the production of Green house GASES, and creating a Healther and Greener Communites

A firm in the USA, GPI explains a West-to-Diesel Process.
Last year at a Waste Expo in Atanta, CEO, Micael Spilizauer and CTO, James Osterloh, give a brief description of their revolutionary process that turns feedstock municiple Waste into high grade diesel fuel, Eleminating the need for landfill or even Incineration !!
They're much further along now in the development of this process and you can see it on YOUTUBE, august 2008.
This could be another way we can go down the road to a complet Zero Waste SOCIETY.


Commercial buildings available by 2025!!! in the USA !
Efforts to focus on the development of marketable Zero-net Energy Commercial Properties that use advanced efficiency Technologies to offsite their Energy use from the Electriciaty Grid by 2025.
The needed transformation of the building environment, lower carban footprint in buildings and accelerated commercial development of clean, efficient building technologies.
New businesses that will lead the way foreward, focusing on Energy, Transpotation, Alternative Fuels, Green building Technologies, Pollation control and Resourse Managment.
New buildings capable of generating as much Energy as they Consume avalable by 2025!!
Energy Generation can be achived through advanced energy efficency technologies and on site Generable energy Generating systems.
In fact you can see this in operaton projects right now in the USA and yes even in the UK.
if we follow this strategy and combin it with a Zero Waste policy think of the amount we could help lower our CARBON FOOTPRINT.

Zero Waste A Reality

All councils, Governments around the WORLD, should work togeather to end the need for both Landfill sites and Incineration Plants, for the good of the local Environment and its local communities.
All they need is the right attitude, A desire to Achieve, The Courage to take action to achieve all goals and targets set under the KYOTO Agreement.
Landfills and Incineration combined with Recycling/Composting cannot work as part of the Transition to a ZERO WASTE Society.
Incineration and Landfill are an Expensive Policy and uses Polluting technology, which needs guaranteed large amounts of waste to payback the Huge Financial Investments and so would commit us to at least 25-30 Years of Incinerating Waste , with all the NEGATIVE HEALTH and ENVIRONMENTAL Consequences.
By using the Incineration and even the Landfill Policies we MISS the OPPORTUNITY for this Country to take advantage of Valuable Markets in the Recycling Market !! and Eco -Design of all Products and help cut down on the Carbon Footprint of these old out of date Policies.
We need to PROMOTE a Zero Waste and even a Zero-Net Energy Policy, and get all Landfill and Incinerators Projects stopped, on the grounds of that they are a waste of Taxpayers money, Resources, Unsightly and a possibly danger to HEALTH!!!
We need all to work together in the local commounity and the rest of the world to see the Imptementation in the of a Zero Waste and Zero-Net Energy Strategy.. Now before its to late to save the Environment and Planet for our Children.
