Tom alerted me to this video. It is an approach to dealing with the situation we face resulting from peak oil. One thing it doesn't talk very much about is the wonders of small community and the richness of hands-on engagement in life. There are a lot of things we should be very concerned about and there are growing dangers from the ways we live in disregard to the environment, but we also need to look at those very positive aspects of community, mental health, and sense of wholeness that arise when we are actively producing and creating and growing with our own hands. When we begin to see the future as something glorious from our past we can encounter it without fear.
