You deserve a break today! So sit back and relax for about a half hour to watch a little video treat I have for you. If you don't have that kind of time just now, I know that later there is about a half hour of bad sitcom or even worse election coverage that you'll be able to live without. The title sounds kind of gloomy, I know, but it has a happy ending.
This is what I am talking about when I mention peak oil. In the end, where it talks about working toward the future (albeit with a higher level of manual labor), that is what Joe and I are working on now. I'll find a similarly watchable video on Permaculture soon so that you all can get a deeper understanding of that concept as well.
