FUTURE SCENARIOS
How Communities Can Adapt toPeak Oil and Climate Change
David Holmgren
 
In
Future Scenarios 
,permaculture co-originator and leading sustainability innovator DavidHolmgren outlines four scenarios that bring to life the likely cultural, political, agricultural,and economic implications of peak oil and climate change, and the generations-long era of “energy descent” that faces us.“Scenario planning,” Holmgren explains, “allows us to use stories about the future as a referencepoint for imagining how particular strategies and structures might thrive, fail, or be transformed.”
Future Scenarios 
depicts four very different futures. Each is a permutation of mild or destructiveclimate change, combined with either slow or severe energy declines. Probable futures, explainsHolmgren, range from the relatively benign Green Tech scenario to the near catastrophicLifeboats scenario. As Adam Grubb, founder of the influential Energy Bulletin Web site, says, “These aren’t two-dimensional nightmarish scenarios designed to scare people into environmental action. They arecompellingly fleshed-out visions of quite plausible alternativefutures, which delve intoenergy, politics, agriculture, social, and even spiritual trends. What they do help make clearare the best strategies for preparing for and adapting to these possible futures.”
Future Scenarios 
provides brilliant and balanced consideration of the world’soptions and willprove to be one of the most important books of the year.
 
From permaculture’s co-originator, a hopeful,compassionate, and cautious look at four possiblefutures, and what we can do to prepare for them.
