Transition or Transformation? Jan Lundberg Speaks at Transition Towns Meeting
by Jan Lundberg   
20 March 2011
ImageThree videos are offered from my talk at the March 5 Pasadena, Calif. gathering of North East Los Angeles Transition, after screening "Transition 1.0 - from Oil Dependence to Local Resilience."

With footage for over 20 minutes for my talk, two parts had to be created for YouTube's requirements, plus a third video of humor and music.

Enjoy these one after the other, or do the funny third one first. Comments welcome, as are requests for Jan Lundberg's appearance at your local venue for your organization.

Depaver Jan Freedom Says -- original eco-song


Please! I don't own a motor vehicle; the RV -- the one used for this music video -- was the "top of the line" in the early 1970s. It was made by a troop transport contractor, and now belongs to one of my cousins. Thanks go to Dana Lyons whose hilarious song "RV" is excerpted preceding my performance of "Freedom Says" at the NELA Transition event. This Depavers song is dedicated to David Gypsy Chain, a Humboldt forest defender killed by a pro-corporate logger in 1998. The song is on our album "Have a Global Warming Day" and in a demo version on a Depaver Jan album "Redwood Dreams."
These videos were produced by David Nathenson in Huntington Beach, Calif. Visit
