When Economic Collapse Hits, Subsistence Farms Are the Best Place to Be

“Probably the best place to be in this situation [economic collapse precipitated by peak oil and a changing climate] would be on a subsistence farm in a village in Sub-Saharan Africa or someplace that’s not much effected by what happens in the rest of the world. I think most people don’t realize how vulnerable we are. For example, the food supply in the average city in the United States, if it’s not daily renewed, would run out in about 3 days. There’s not much of a buffer there. The system can come apart pretty fast.”

-Lester Brown, “The Planet’s Scarcest Resource is Time,” March 22, 2011.
