We can't all know everything.That's a plain and simple fact.

What we hope to do over the next few years, is craft a course of study, a manual of knowledge, that people can read and at the end have a core set of skills that will help them in the Long Descent to come. Help them and help the people around them.

Photographer Paul Nicklen and filmmakers from the conservation group Sea Legacy posted a video of the starving bear and stated that they believed its condition was a direct result of Climate Change.

Now I won't lie and I won't sugar coat the future for all of us. Its going to be tight, cold and nasty. Marked by uncertainty, crime and want.

And by Fear.

The Long Descent will affect your life in a whole host of ways. Whether that street light gets repaired. Whether your trash gets picked up. Whether there is a grocery within easy distance. Whether you get basic services like water and power.
