Sharon Astyk on coping with collapse

Summary of 19 Mar 2012 ASPO Peak Oil Review editorial “Collapse? Really?”:

If a collapse of some sort does happen, what helps?

  • Social support systems and safety nets strengthened
  • Making medical care, food and shelter available
  • small-scale agriculture in urban centers
  • small-scale localized economies
  • scavenging, i.e. cardboard in Argentina came to support forty thousand people — just barely, though.
  • informal economy jobs, i.e. shining shoes
  • We’re going to have to find a new definition of better.
