Peak Everything Richard Heinberg Book Global crisis; energy descent ILL "...describes how to make the transition from The Age of Excess to the Era of Modesty with grace and satisfaction, while preserving the best of our collective achievements."

Some potential shortages:

  • petroleum (see Peak oil)
  • natural gas
  • uranium
  • wood, as building matl, firewood, pulp
  • water (the most critical, though little recognized in USA)
