Zenith or Peak ... either way, we're there and on the way down
My entire blog and the book that's based on it (Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs: the Thrivalist's Guide to Life Without Oil) is about guiding others in their journey toward the six steps Chris Martenson recommends in his Crash Course.
The steps are:
1. Invest in community (chapter 19: Networking)
2. Preserve your wealth
3. Reduce fossil fuel dependence (chapters 9, 10, 11, 15, and 21)
4. Eat local (chapters 5-8)
5. Boost emergency readiness
6. Improve your health (chapters 13 and 14)
This great video explains why we should even care enough to start making changes, and why we should start now, rather than waiting. As the video explains, when the proverbial it happens, we won't notice it at first, but then, it will be like a flash flood, and by then, if we haven't been making adaptations in our lives (as above), it will be too late.
What are you waiting for?
