There's nothing like taking a decent road trip over a holiday weekend, like Memorial Day, to catch up on some blogging. We went from Bucks County, PA, where gasoline was selling for $3.75 at one local station. We got a $3.79 fillup without going out of our way. That was quite a relief from the $4 plus prices we saw in the previous weeks. It reinforces my attention to energy and climate as key issues.
On the way home, we found gasoline for $3.49 in Waynesboro, Virginia. We had… Continue

This article, POPULATION: THINKING ABOUT OUR FUTURE, was posted on the Oil Drum today (the 13th of Sept). When you get a chance it's worth a read.
Here is a different example, still using crude oil. The United States reached its peak oil production in 1970, when our population was about 203 million. Had it been necessary for us to live within our means with respect to oil after 1970, we would have needed to reduce our…

Leaked Study on Peak Oil Warns of Severe Global Energy Crisis
This week a study on peak oil by a German military think tank was leaked on the Internet. The document shows that the German government is closely studying the issue of peak oil, and is aware of the potential for serious consequences as oil production declines. The study is… Continue

I got this article from one of our members. I didn't see it posted here, but couldn't think of a better place. It is one thing when the US military issues a report about peak oil publicly

"Oil scarcity and the shit storm it will bring may or may not be
something you see happening. Nevertheless, being able to survive
independently of such forces is easily doable with no loss of
happiness or comfort. Dependency comes from crappy design, bad laws,

Last week I wrote here
about the Creation of a Local Peak Oil Task Force in Bellingham and Whatcom County.
Today I want to share the Briefing Paper that was prepared in advance of the task force. This paper was written to accompany and support the City and County Resolutions creating the task force in May of 2008. Some will want to read the 8 page paper as one document - please see the pdf… Continue

The Energy Resource Scarcity / Peak Oil (ERSPO) Task Force of Bellingham and Whatcom County
will soon be releasing its report. In preparation, I thought it would be a good idea to provide some background.
In the spring of 2007, local peak oil educator John Rawlins suggested to me that it might be a good idea to pass around a petition in support of a peak oil task force here in Bellingham, Washington. I didn't have time to get a petition drive going, but soon after that… Continue

I have been doing two monthly sustainability video-discussion events for almost a 18 months. As usual, I didn't think to post the most recent events here, even they were on the Transition movement. I don't think I've ever had a response from this website. I was surprised by a nice turnout for both the Doylestown and the Warminster, PA events. Sold (at cost) several copies of the Trans Initiatives Primer. I missed out getting mailing list at both, but can recover most. I knew about half of the… Continue

We started out just bringing muffins or extra eggs to neighbors. This has mushroomed into so much back and forth bartering, gifting and trading that it is just mind-boggling! It seems the closer we get to collapse, the more food, supplies, tools, and tips are shared. The more we give… Continue

Here's a cautionary tale that I found on a recent ENN post that points to the value of promoting community resilience.

Dawson Creek has a reputation of being one of B.C.'s most progressive municipalities when it comes to renewable energy.

Its funny how a massive and scary idea like Peak Oil can wrap it's tentacles around the mind and nudge thoughts in particular directions. There is certainly the whole grief dynamic that one must cycle through, of necessity it is a loop and no resolution because we live within the moment of collapse, not the other side.
But Peak Oil was… Continue

Everything requires energy. What humans did (post-IR), was to replace living energy with dead energy. Humans used to actually labor. We used animals for their strength; we got our horsepower from actual horses! And some of us still do! We are Amish; we are Old Order Mennonites; we are simple-living Anabaptist's. It will be difficult, but not impossible, to convert the elite; those conditioned by Victorianism; to make farmers and builders out of… Continue

I realized when I was planning last year’s garden just how fantastically hard it is to grow enough in the summer to replace an entire year’s food from the grocery store.
And, even though it is a somewhat frustrating activity while even… Continue

Craving stability in our living arrangements, our food sources, our political and governing state as well as our personal security is a natural enough thing, truly. As babies, this is something we are instinctually driven to do, find food, find our mother's voice, her smell, her… Continue
