Climate change and peak oil topics are fully described in The Transition Handbook by Rob Hopkins. It becomes understandable that climate change and peak oil formed a formidable challenge not only to our way of life, but also to our values and even to national security. These topics are important parts of our reality and there is no one right answer on all questions described in the article. There are many ways how to change situation, but all of them forced people to work in collaboration with each other.

Identifying claims Hopkins makes about peak oil and climate change we see that he tries to open the problem for people from its real side and according to his words: “we can move from feeling anxiety and fear in the face of “peak oil”, to developing a positive vision and taking practical action to create a more self-reliant existence”. In such a way Hopkins claims to change situation and stop climate change, to think positively and involve people into the problem. There are two ways that will help to change situation, the first one is to give people knowledge and wait for results, but the second way is to give people an opportunity to find necessary knowledge by themselves and it will have positive results, because such activity involves people into the process and allows them to create an ideal picture of their own future and ways how to achieve desirable results.

Thus, Hopkins in his work claims people to think, to create and use positive vision. It is necessary to find an ideal picture for own future and only then problems of peak oil and climate change could be solved in the right way. Hopkins style of writing is easy reading and after article reading I became interested in researched questions. In my opinion even sceptical people could understand that it is necessary to change our world and these changes should have their roots in little community and only then go further on the national level. I strongly believe that this article will find the path to readers’ hearts and unite people for the great changes and prosperous future creation.
