How We’re Transitioning to Resilience against Peak Oil and Global Famine (and you can too!)

Why did Rob and Michelle Avis decide, a decade ago, to leave behind high-paying careers in petroleum engineering to practice permaculture? Listen in as Rob discusses how the world is heading toward critical shortages of oil, grain, and the minerals that make conventional agriculture possible….and how the Ukraine-Russia war is the final factor that could lead to a cascade of collapse and ultimately famine around the end of 2022. Scary thought, yes – but don’t panic: there are many strategic actions that you can take to build food, water, and energy security for yourself and your loved ones today – and at Verge, we’ve got some positive and effective solutions that we would love to share with you!
