Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
Frankly it is not clear that my current work applies directly to the Transition movement. However, as a biologist I have a solid understanding of biological systems under pressure and am acutely aware of the urgency for global transition toward sustainable practices.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
As a biologist who has been paying attention, I have been increasingly aware of the dire predicament that humanity faces with respect to environmental degradation, fueled by insatiable human consumption and climate change, which promise to undermine any misguided attempt to maintain BAU. The Transition movement is, in my view, an attempt to be a part of the solution, and that is precisely where I want to be.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I have a firm understanding of biological systems. That is a starting point upon which I hope to build knowledge of sustainable agricultural practices. I have teaching experience; learning and teaching are two of my strongest skills. I would like to learn sustainable methods of growing and preserving food, and would eventually like to teach those skills locally.
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
Agricultural practices; sustainable living practices; conservation; building resilience; co-existence with natural forces and factors.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Sustainability Movement
I am new to the Transition movement. My favorite websites/blogs for information about the multitude of problems facing humanity have included: theoildrum, postcarbon.org, fairewinds.com, ABC Environment, Climate Reality, and recently, Transition Network. I have read most of Heinberg's books, as well as books by Deffeyes, Engelman, Meadows, Tainter, Margulis, Lovelock, and McKibben. Recently my focus has turned toward the practical: my current reading list comprises primarily books about growing and preserving food, and related activities, such as rainwater harvesting. I have the Transition Handbook and Transition Companion in hand.

Hi Carol and welcome to the Transition California Community.  We believe it will be the biologist who end up providing the information that helps turn the Titanic around through exposing the facts of how our current mode is impacting our present and future quality of life so hats off to you and your efforts to learn about sustainable agricultural practices.  Let us know if you need any help navigating this network.

Cheers
