A World of Transition

Rob Hopkins

Rob Hopkins

Rob Hopkins, founder of Transition Towns and the Transition Network and a fellow of the Post Carbon Institute, joins ZOOM’D to explore the Transition Movement, a social experiment on a massive scale devoted to the twin challenges and opportunities of peak oil and climate change. Peaking of world oil production presents an unprecedented risk-management problem—and without timely mitigation, the economic, social, and political costs will be exorbitant. Rob describes the ins and outs of the global grassroots organizing effort taking place, recognizing that if we wait for government to act, it will be too little, too late; if we act as individuals alone, it will be too little; but if we act in communities, it might be just enough, just in time. Join Rob and ZOOM’D host John Schmidt as they describe practicalities of the situation, opportunities involved, and the resilience needed to realize a desirable and sustainable future.
