I would like to recommend a blog to you. The blog is "Casaubon's Book" by Sharon Astyk. She has been posting for about four years.
In those four years, she has proved many posts on her thoughts about peak-oil. Her posts have practical advice for living with less energy and other things too.
You may be wondering about my emphasizing peak-oil.
I believe the "Make-do," we need to "Prepare Now!" for future emergencies, and the "we can survive this" are important attributes for everyone that are preparing for emergencies.
