For six of the past 11 years, the world has eaten more food than it has produced. People in wealthy countries are as yet unscathed- they think its just the poor end of the boat that is sinking. (Chapters One and Two) 2. Were running out of water. Lakes, rivers, reservoirs and aquifers everywhere are shrinking, with no hope of replenishment. Stand by to abandon Las Vegas. (Chapter Three) 3. Were running out of oil. Forget the hype about the mythical oil boom in the US, oil production continues to decline worldwide and will soon deprive the industrial economies of their oxygen -- cheap, plentiful oil. (Chapter Five) 4. Were running out of electricity. The power grid is aged, unstable and misused. Efforts to develop sustainable sources of electricity are doomed as long as they feed their product into the unsustainable grid. (Chapter Six explains the problem. For the solution, see Chapter Ten.) 5. Were running out of time. Global climate change, a threat multiplier for all the above, is coming on faster and harder than anyone predicted just a few years ago. Its too late to save everybody. But you can save anybody -- your family, your community -- by understanding the threat and learning the principles of sustainable living, and sanctuary, as explained by a veteran, nationally recognized environmental writer.
