Personal & Community Preparedness for a Low Energy World
No matter how you slice it, the planet will one day run out of cheap fossil fuels. Some say we're already at the peak production rate, others say it's a decade or two in the future. But even they say it's a time of unprecedented change and humankind has no idea how it's going to navigate the transition.
Even if we are not compelled by the forces of supply and demand, and unequal claims on resources, we may be persuaded by the immorality of living beyond our means, devastating the ecology and mortgaging the futures of our children. After all, in less than 150 years, the nations of the world have consumed about half of the known reserves of oil and natural gas, leaving precious little for future generations.
