*Plan C: Community Survival Strategies for Peak Oil and Climate Change* 
By Pat Murphy

/Plan C/ <http://www.communitysolution.org/plancbook.html> explores the 
risks inherent in trying to continue our energy-intensive lifestyle. 
Using dirtier fossil fuels (Plan A) or switching to renewable energy 
sources (Plan B) allows people to remain complacent in the face of 
potential global catastrophe. Dramatic lifestyle change is the only way 
to begin to create a sustainable, equitable world.

The converging crises of Peak Oil, Climate Change and increasing 
inequity are presented in a clear, concise manner, as are the twin 
solutions of community (where cooperation replaces competition) and 
curtailment (deliberately reducing consumption of consumer goods). /Plan 
C/ shows how each person's individual choices can dramatically reduce 
CO_2 emissions. It offers specific strategies in the areas of food, 
transportation and housing.

Plan C is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in living a 
lower-energy, saner, and sustainable lifestyle.

"Read it, send copies to your city council members, roll up your sleeves 
and join in. It's the only decent future we have."

"The world is at peak injustice, and that one point, and its 
ramifications, make /Plan C/ essential reading."

"In /Plan C,/ Pat Murphy has not only shown us the life we /should/ lead 
-- he has shown us the life we /must/ lead -- if we are to survive on 
this planet."
-- Adam Corson-Finnery, author of /World Citizen: Action for Global
