If you can, watch this video above, and here are the following ones.
Life in America will be VERY different, but I would be
one that would say that something different is both sorely
needed for the planet and for the human social system.
We suffer from disconnection from nature, our neighbors,
Instead of figuring out how we can get "green" energy to keep
this circus moving along smoothly, why not figure out how
we can live comfortably with less? What news pundit ever gives
THAT suggestion? Needless to say, that is what we are going to have
to do. We need to start plotting how we can live complete, satisfying,
and comfortable lives with 5% of the energy we are used to consuming.
How? Permaculture and breaking free from materialism.
Hope this helps...this is the answer.
