An inspiring book about tackling climate change and Peak Oil is The Transition Handbook - see video on my blog from a previous post here about the book being launched.

The book is now available online - and Rob Hopkins is inviting folk to help with the rewitie of teh second edition - see here:
As Rob says: "This is not a book about how dreadful the future could be; rather it is an invitation to join the increasingly whole people in hundreds of communities around the world who are taking the steps towards making a nourishing and abundant future a reality."
The Appropedia is also a great website resource for other stuff.
