Some people gather in a church hall. Someone called Andy is talking. I sit near the edge. Near the door. I recognise a few people from the screening a few months before. Apparently a Transition Town is a community response to the challenge of climate change, something called "peak oil" and economic challenges. Very admirable. I have always wanted to do something about the environment. Always talking about it, never doing anything. Then Andy says that a number of the people in the core group had moved on or got too busy so we are now the steering group.
"Sorry? We're in charge?"
"I don't even know these people. Can we not just watch another video, this sounds too hard."
