Hi, I was just wondering what you all may have been doing to prepare for peak oil, or rather, life after the oil crash. I guess I should first ask, do you believe this is going to happen? I have been reading and hearing some convincing arguments (such as Richard Heinberg's book "The Party's Over," the film "The End of Suburbia," as well as websites such as http://www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net). If you do believe we are in for rough times in the not-so-distant future, how are you as individuals and as communities preparing? I am trying to get over the shock of realizing that life as we know it may be drastically changed in a very short span of time. Have others out there also gone through some difficulty in coping with the thought of peak oil, and if so, how have you managed this mental and emotional upheaval? One reassuring thought that I've been clinging to with all my might is the knowledge that living in cohousing, or any type of intentional community, would be a huge mitigating factor. My husband and I will be moving into our brand new community in September (first move-ins will start next month). Thanks for any thoughts or feedback you may be able to provide.
