"Leave Oil Before Oil Leaves Us"

In the spirit of the Stoics, who saw much of life as inherently uncertain, some are contemplating the climate and energy uncertainty that may lie ahead in proactive way. In the video below you can see examples in southern London of what is being called, "Transition Towns". It's what these communities have decided to do in the face of the possibility that oil has peaked. They are working to transition their lifestyles, food, businesses, transport and even currency so that they "leave oil before oil leaves us."
