Read this. I have been reading about such plans for decades (I read Ecotopia as a child), but have always regarded them as essentially impossible. Meanwhile, I don’t have any better visions for a post-oil society, and I admire the courage of those who don’t let the height of the mountain prevent them from starting to climb.
I’m going to attend Dana’s meeting to establish a Carless Zone here in Portland this Friday. I wrote with a bunch of preliminary doubting questions, and got as good a reply as I could expect. Join us?
Along similar lines, the larger Portland area has a growing Oil Awareness group with regular meetings. I have yet to attend one, but that could change.
