A global economist for HSBC recently warned that oil will last us less than 50 years, and called for government planning on a level not seen for 40 years. The Transition Movement has already begun planning.  It began in 2005 in Totnes in the UK with a vote by the town council to work toward energy independence and a sustainable future. The idea spread quickly. There are now over 300 communities recognized as official Transition Towns in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Italy and Chile.

REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS

Host Michelle Schroeder-Fletcher speaks with Joni Seager and Cynthia Enloe about their book, REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS, which draws back the curtain on our complex nation to reveal the myriad realities of the American experience-from our changing demographics to patterns of home ownership to the kinds of food we eat. The atlas upends many long-held myths and shows us who we are today.

Bo Rinaldi on adopting a plant based lifestyle

Host Robyn Shanti welcomes guest Bo Rinaldi, who calls himself a “bloodless revolutionary” and believes that the only way out of this matrix of Corporatocracy we find ourselves in, is by adopting a plant based lifestyle.

Bo is one of the pioneers of the organic movement in the US and has been a vegan since 1960, when at 12 years old, he cured himself of asthma and other allergies by following a vegan diet in just two weeks. What Bo proposes now is that a simple plant based diet can cure what ails us, saving us tons of money, support our local economies better than any other action and free us from the matrix of control known as 'food', which actually kills us, medicines that mask symptoms and businesses that pillage the lands and peoples.
