PEAK OIL PREP WEBSITES
Peak Oil has been looming on the horizon for a long time. If you just got the word, we hope it was in time for you to be at least psychologically prepared, if not physically. This entire Beyond Peak website is dedicated to giving you as much information as possible so that you can prepare for, or at least deal with, the likely results of Peak Oil and economic collapse. But we are not alone.
A number of groups have been working for some time to imagine possible Peak Oil and economic collapse scenarios, suggest ways to prepare for those scenarios, and even to create communities where people can live together in a sustainable, cooperative way—a way of life that doesn't need the threat of Peak Oil to be a good idea.
