Is Your Community Ready?

Peak oil awareness is gaining a critical mass nationwide, and not just amongst scientists. Monthly meet-up groups are arising nationwide, even in Midwestern communities as diverse as Louisville, Kentucky (see Louisville Courier-Journal article) to discuss what this means to them and what they can do to be prepared. Whether the true crisis will actually arise in the coming weeks, months, or years is not the relevant issue. The most critical part of the equation is to ask ourselves whether our communities will be fit to accommodate the need for more walkable neighborhoods.

    Glad to see that even medium-sized cities in the Midwest are starting to realize the implications that high oil prices will have on their community. We have a long way to go, but it’s a start.
