This weekend I attended a workshop on Transition Towns which is a determinedly non-political movement to facilitate communities towards the lifestyle changes which must be made once the cheap oil has run out. The point being (cue cliche) "to leave oil before it leaves us." To detail here what we did at the workshop would be tedious so for the time being just imagine how life would change if fuel jumped to $5 a litre. Now, excuse me while I turn Henny Penny into chicken soup. BOK BOK BOK!!
