578 – Closet Doomer

KMO talks with Peter, the author of the Toxic Plants blog, about how and when he came to take peak oil and the prospect for economic collapse seriously and the preparations he has taken to ensure that his family is better positioned to weather the breakdown of the economy and global supply lines than most people.
