Readers, are any of you involved with or aware of the transition towns movement?
I think the transition town focus on "peak oil" is misplaced, since "all roads lead to finance," and a peak oil is only one of many potential stressors ("collapsors"?).
Nevertheless, the focus on resilience* is important and and leads to important and useful policy outcomes.
NOTE * I think the artificial persons ("corpses"?) are already co-opting "sustainable," redefining it as that which creates -- surprise -- rents, but resilient seems to be uncontaminated so far.
