  • I did not read every page, but this felt like a guide of how to live amidst global warming and make smarter decisions It sometimes says things like, in case fuel is hard to come by, you can put these potato wedges in an open fire, and includes ideas to conserve water in your bathtub, and a recipe for grasshopper quesadillas Which maybe is a future reality, but I don t knowere were some contradictions What I liked was that it talked about making sprouts, drying food, canning, and also about alter [...]


  • This book was kind of a mixed bag some good info, some ridiculous sounding recipes, some helpful, hopeful ways of thinking about how to deal with an uncertain future And what future IS certain I liked that he talked about communities as being essential to survival and offered ways of building communities and issues to think about related to sustaining communities I m assuming, though, that he was joking when he included iPod in the list of bike essentials That was a joke, right Had to be a joke.
