Ever wonder why today’s environmentalism resembles religion more than science? Welcome to the “Transition” movement and see how the goals of the transition movement (like the “Bellingham Community Bill of Rights”) are tied into GAIA worship. The Transition Whatcom site has many links to keep you busy for at least a day and it is representative of all the other transition websites you’ll find worldwide on the net.

Vision & Mission
Transition Whatcom's VISION is resilient and more self-reliant communities throughout Whatcom County with a local food supply, sustainable energy sources, a healthy local economy, and a growing sense of vitality and community well-being.
The MISSION of Transition Whatcom is:
1) To explore and then follow pathways of practical actions that will reduce our carbon emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.
2) To rebuild our community's resilience, that is, its ability to withstand shocks from the outside, through being more self-reliant in areas such as food, energy, health care, jobs and economics.
3) To inspire and support the communities and neighborhoods of Whatcom County as they establish Transition Initiatives at these local levels; and
4) To coordinate a county-wide, citizen led Energy Descent Action Pathway by creating a collective 20 year vision of Whatcom County. From there we will devise the paths on which we may achieve our objectives.
Transition Whatcom Structure
On June 30, 2010, Transition Whatcom adopted a new structure. Documents related to the structure can be found at the link above.
