How North Korea & Cuba reacted to their Peak Oil

http://www.yesmagazine.org/article.asp?ID=1462
When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989, both Cuba and North Korea overnight lost the ability to sustain themselves with oil.  This affected agriculture and the Western style “Green Revolution” of oil based farming that we still use today.  This article highlights the differences and analysis of what’s in store.

Interesting to note how Cuba has changed and the various educational fronts.  I had no idea since hearing about “The Power of Community – How Cuba Survived Peak Oil”  at http://www.communitysolution.org/cuba.html .  Within the context of North Korea as well, we see that it’s not just government style where our fate lies, but in its ability to respond and reshape to the demands of a crisis and the community to work together.
