2013: The Space Between Stories, By Charles Eisenstein

Two Rocks

When a story nears its end it goes through death throes, an exaggerated semblance of life. So today we see domination, conquest, violence, and separation take on absurd extremes that hold a mirror up to what was once hidden and diffuse. . . . → Read More: 2013: The Space Between Stories, By Charles Eisenstein

Resilience: Why So Many Parents Today Are Getting It Wrong, By Annie Lussenburg

kid

You see, resilience comes out of a struggle. That’s it, there’s no other way to get it. Take the wrong bus and end up at the wrong stop will build you resilience but only if you aren’t able to place a rescue call for someone to pick you up. Failing math and having to try harder: There’s a good one. Having to go to another soccer game and try again because the last time you mucked up and everyone is mad at you. Realizing that a course or activity you thought you’d enjoy is just terrible but sticking with it anyway, even though you’re sometimes miserable. . . . → Read More: Resilience: Why So Many Parents Today Are Getting It Wrong, By Annie Lussenburg

In fact, we have a national phobia of limits,” wryly observes John Michael Greer: author, historian, conservationist, and proprietor of the popular weblog The Archdruid Report. “We need to get past that.”—Includes podcast interview by Chris Martenson . . . → Read More: John Michael Greer: If The Four Horsemen Arrive, Offer Beer: Facing The Future With Optimism

Collapse Fatigue: Prevention And Treatment, By Carolyn Baker

Forest Fire 2

The reason many people experience collapse fatigue is that they are waiting for a dramatic, off-the-cliff event that will “prove” to themselves and their detractors that collapse is actually happening—and thereby bring civilization to its knees. Moreover, let’s be honest: Anyone who has researched collapse and is preparing for it has some last vestige of doubt, however miniscule, that the way of life we have known since birth will actually vanish. Why else do hundreds of people tell me that they feel schizophrenic about collapse as they continue knowing what they know, but interact with countless others who are clueless? Why else do some people confess that some part of them thinks they may be crazy for preparing? . . . → Read More: Collapse Fatigue: Prevention And Treatment, By Carolyn Baker

The Top 10 Peak Oil Books Of 2011

Navigating Cover

Welcome to our second annual list of the top ten peak oil books. Most of them are explicitly about peak oil, while others deal with energy depletion as a significant factor in the economy or the environment.

VIDEO: Guy McPherson Discusses His Awakening And Preparation For Collapse

The first video clip describes my personal journey in the usual, self-indulgent manner, and the program allowed no time for subsequent questions.

VIDEO: How I Prepared My Family For Peak Oil And Economic Uncertainty, By Nicole Foss

“There is a hell of a lot we can do. We can’t have business as usual. We have to get over it. It is gone. It is done. We cant’ have that. We have to be happy with what we can have; that is really what it means to be human, and that is incredibly important.” . . . → Read More: VIDEO: How I Prepared My Family For Peak Oil And Economic Uncertainty, By Nicole Foss
