How have you reduced your fossil fuel consumption since learning about Peak Oil?

Still researching how to.


Live in an HOA neighborhood. Is there any hope for me WRT solar power/water heating? Also researching alternative fuel ala LP gas then H gas or else electric and maybe fuel cell.

What Tim J. is saying about this Meetup Group

1) Never talked with others in the group so not really knowledgeable. 2) Seeking alternative (thrivalist?) strategies. Investigating power and other strategies. 3) Not sure a "train wreck" will occur but surely the middle class will bleed out and America will look like China in a decade or two unless the Aristocracy loses somehow. I suspect the Middle Class is a historical aberration; thus, my focus is not on how to save America but how to organize for a New America. Very similar to what the High Schooler said. I don't think America is salvageable with 95% of the sheeple voting along for The Party. I am very frustrated to hear people knock capitalism. Capitalism is what makes beach cottages rentable to every person. Oil monopolies are not capitalism. The USA is not a Capitalistic Democracy but a Corporate Aristocracy. Capitalism is the natural state of most small towns. Just take a trip to a less government-controlled country and see. Still looking forward to meeting the group.
