Have you wanted to learn more about "peak oil" and what climate change might mean for our Island community?  C.A.R.E. has launched a new forward-looking subcommittee to look at ways to make our Island home more sustainable and resilient in the face of the global economic downturn, climate crisis, and "peak" oil. We will learn about "peak oil" and the climate crisis through readings by experts on the topic and learn how we can organize/structure our community to respond so that the impacts of the crises are lessened. Many positive efforts have been undertaken by communities worldwide and we will look at those and draw lessons for our community. We will use a book club format to study the Transition Handbook and other readings about climate change, creating resilient community and lowering our community carbon footprint.

We have decided to meet at Clay and Susan Thompson's to start. We will have a potluck for each meeting and approximately one to one and a half hours of discussion, depending on the topic. Please join us for a positive experience.  Meetings are the Fourth Thursday. This month, the Transition Book Club will meet 6:30pm, October 26, at 2188 Lowell Pt Rd- the last house on the right before the Camano State Park.
