Tough Transition with Albert Bates


Can you create a Transition Town in the Republican South? Without dwelling on the contentious issues of climate change or Peak Oil? Albert Bates shows us how to move anyone toward localization and food security.

Albert Bates is a former attorney, a designer, biochar expert, author, speaker, and an international and local organizer. Albert has lived at the famous intentional community called "The Farm" in Summertown, Tennessee since 1972. His book "Climate in Crisis" was published back in 1990, with more following, like "The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook" in 2006, and "The Biochar Solution" in 2010.

In this 22 minute Radio Ecoshock interview, Bates describes how Hohenwald Tennessee became the 24th Transition Town in America.
