No matter what happens in the next decade, the fact of the matter is that we are all in this together.
There is no us and them.
If things go pear-shaped, as many commentators predict, then we only have each other to fall back on, and we will have to deal with many, very open and difficult emotions. I wrote about the 7 stages of change mid last year, and it has been a very popular post. Many people want to understand how to cope.
We will also need people like The Peak Shrink, aka Kathy McMahon, to help us understand the emotions that we are going to have to deal with WTSHTF. It is not going to be pretty when many wake up to less of everything, and look for someone to blame.
Anyhow, have a watch of this interview with Kathy on Peak Moment. It is enlightening and enjoyable, with a few ah-ha moments. I have felt many of the same emotions as Kathy talks about, when I discovered the truth about Peak Everything. You can read more about Kathy on her blog, Peak Oil Blues. Some of the earlier posts are very mind expanding.
What did you feel like when you discovered the impacts of Peak Oil? Did you start hoarding things, or just to feel like your mind was going to overload?
