  1. read this book recently. great primer on peak oil split up into different topics.

    The one area on education however I differ since Cuba has shown that with Peak Oil (since they had an artificial one when the Soviet Union collapsed) the effect was more schools and more teachers not less as the need for information exchange and learning / sharing skills increased into the local neighbourhoods. As schools are too far away, rather than the end of schools, they instead get reinvented and recreated where they are needed based on the local communities and what interests they have.

    This is based on an article that I read from permaculture.net magazine, with links to http://www.communitysolution.org/ . Also online at http://www.globalpublicmedia.com/interviews/691
