This is a presentation with time for discussion. It will review three competing world-views about how to push on in the face of climate change and resource depletion. Plan A is business as usual. Plan B is business as usual, but fueled by renewable energy. Plan C is the only one that is mathematically (and morally) sound enough to achieve powerdown, transition, and an ethos of permaculture. This talk will provide a broad and easy-to-visualize description about why Transition is different from most so-called environmental activism.
