Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Presently, I am not involved with Transition other than having read about it in Jon Mooallem's "The End Is Near! (Yay!)" 4/19/09 NY Times Magazine article, pp. 28-35.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
The Transition movement appears to be just that - movement, action - something constructive to do instead of being a deer standing in the headlights
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am an Architect, practising 30 years in Atlanta. Up until late in 2008, I have been promoting, begging, talking up & generally wearing myself out urging my fellow human beings to start thinking about major changes in our life style, our cumulative consumption of non-renewable energy.
Every discouraging once & a while, I recall that one should never try to teach a pig to sing because it is a waste of time & it irritates the pig.
After shaking my head, I realize that I still need to get the pig to sing because I am just another pig. And, if we don't start singing about our relationship to all living things, we shall end up being curious fossils that future creatures will stare at in amusement wondering, "What happened to them oh those many zillions of years ago?"
I may have an opportunity to affect change in Atlanta and while I would like to either speak or email about it at some length I do not know if this is the most timely or appropriate forum. In the brief scanning of this website, many of the entries are several months old and I do not have months or even weeks for a response.

John,
Thanks for reaching out. You and I share many things. I am a green architect with my own practice, RT3 Architects. My frustration with spreading the word (teaching pigs to sing) one client at a time lead to the creation of the educational non-profit Choosing Green. (see choosinggreen.com)
Our reading list is similar and Louis Kahn is a major influence, more philosophically than anything that I have ever designed. I find your choice of the word "need" compared to Vitruvious' "utility" and interesting choice.

We have a group up here named Cherokee Transitions Green that has met for almost 2 years now. I would love to find a way to work together on the transition of this region.

Roy
