Transition to a world without oil Rob Hopkins on

Rob Hopkins reminds us that the oil our world depends on is steadily running out. He proposes a unique solution to this problem — the Transition response, where we prepare ourselves for life without oil and sacrifice our luxuries to build systems and communities that are completely independent of fossil fuels. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2009, July 2009, Oxford, UK. Duration: 16:40)
