The Simple Revolution

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

The Simple Revolution

It's simple: just stop consuming and we can survive

Simple (sɪmp(ə)l), a. not complicated; not elaborate; natural; clear.
Revolution (rεvə'lu:∫(ə)n), n. a radical change or reversal of circumstances.

A massive worldwide revolution is going to take place over the next century, driven by Peak Oil and Climate Change. There is nothing you can do to prevent this revolution taking place, but you can help decide what this revolution looks like.

Climate Change: Why you need to change

How to join the revolution

It's simple:

  1. Reduce your own emissions to below 2 tonnes CO2e.
  2. Enlist others to join the revolution.

This website is designed to be a resource to help you reduce your emissions and to provide the arguments to persuade others of the need to reduce theirs. Please get in touch if you wish to contribute, comment or provide links to useful resources.

"The revolution is not going to happen tomorrow- it's never going to happen. It's taking place right now. It is an alternate universe that runs parallel to this one, waiting for you to switch sides."
