What clues do you see in our World / Society that trouble you ? What threatens us the most in your opinion ?

So much of what we consider "normal" American life relies on cheap, easily accessible energy (mainly fossil fuels). As these resources become more expensive to use, EVERYTHING we know will change. Already, people believe the recession ended 2 years ago, despite 9% unemployment; what will people be willing to accept when gas hits $6 or $10 a gallon? The end of cheap energy (and lack of awareness about this) is the primary cause of every other issue, including health care and war, in addition to more obvious effects like food and water shortages.

What are you most interested in learning or sharing ?

I want to lear about intensive organic gardening and hunting, and energy independence. I can share some knowledge from camping, raising chickens, and ways to get informed.


I definitely want to learn how to be more self-reliant, and less dependent on outside systems for food, energy, and water. Meeting others in the area who share this goal seems like a smart (and possibly necessary) idea...
