SS - Now What?

Now that we all know what Peak Oil is about are you ready to do what is needed? OK, let me point you in the direction of some writings on the topic of what needs to be done.

These two are a list of 100 things to do to prepare for Peak Oil:

This last one is a great article about how peak Oil is very much a woman's issue. The bulk of the effects of PO and the solutions will rest on the homemakers who are overwhelmingly female.

Now, I have given you a lot of information to absorb and process and it may feel like it is All Too Much. To much to do, not enough time, no guarantee that it will help. Trust me, I know the feeling. Want to know what helps? Jumping in and doing something! Just pick one thing and do it. Before you know it you are doing more and more and it all seems so easy and you can't believe you ever thought it was too hard. And you'll find that your life is better in small ways that add up. You feel connected to something larger than yourself.

Next week I will be getting into the steps we as a family have taken to do our part to help. Each thing by itself will not seem like much, but it does add up. The To Do list is much bigger than the Done list, but we are taking it one step at a time. After all, as they say, a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. Now, get out there and start walking!
