How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Through my work with the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
We live in a fascinating time with the convergence of peak oil, climate change and the subsequent societal metamorphosis. I'm intrigued by the many ways we continue to prepare ourselves to be equipped for a way of life that is on the way out.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I have worked in the alternative fuels and transportation arenas for twelve years, know hundreds of industry and government people across the country, and have a good understanding of peak oil and climate change.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I'm not quite sure yet as I was just introduced to this by a friend.

In your local community, does Morrison have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup where Transition subjects are dealt with? If so, it would be spot on for all our Colorado members if you would consider including Morrison in our registry of organizations, localities, virtual topics, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. that support Transition and sustainability.
