ESTILL, LYLE (2008): Small is Possible: Life in a Local Economy

In an era when incomprehensibly complex issues like Peak Oil and climate change dominate headlines, practical solutions at a local level can seem somehow inadequate. But they aren’t! Lyle Estill introduces us to «hometown security» with this chronicle of a community-powered response to resource depletion in a fickle global economy. This is the story of how one small southern US town, not willing to rely on the government and wary of large corporations, discovered it is possible for a community to feed itself, fuel itself, heal itself, and govern itself

Lyle Estill is “Vice President of Stuff ” at Piedmont Biofuels, and has won numerous awards for his work in the biodiesel business. He is the author of Biodiesel Power and lives in Moncure, North Carolina.
