With the worldwide economic crisis, climate change and peak oil occurring at a time when governments have massive debt, you will not be able to count on governments to deal with these converging challenges.

It’s time to use existing technologies, both high tech and low tech, to make yourself more independent, from how you heat and power your home, to where you get your food from, and in your finances. It’s time to pay down that debt, grow your own food and start integrating renewable energy into your life to reduce your carbon footprint and free yourself from the stress of financial obligations. This will help return your spirit to its rightful place in harmony with the simple basic things that keep you healthy mentally, physically and spiritually.
