I’ve been researching and writing about the coming earth changes since 1995 and I believe that 2012 will be an important time, but not for the reasons people are led to believe. The world is about to change in ways we are hard pressed to imagine, but those who prepare can well can not only survive, but thrive. The Good Men Project and Magazine may well be the key to our collective survival. Here’s why.

The world is about to change in ways we are hard pressed toimagine, but those who prepare can well can not only survive, but thrive. TheGood Men Project and Magazine may well be the key to our collective survival.Here’s why.1.2012 is a period of major change which will last for decades.The changes that we are in the midst of are real and serious, but they areongoing. There won’t be a simple fix and no hero will save us. The changesresult from a combination of factors including the following:
1.
Economic stress--From instabilities in the global economic system due toincreasing debt and ever-widening income gaps between rich and poor people.2.Emotional stress—From fear of losing resources and increasing violencefrom those who wish to control the critical supplies of oil, coal, water, andland.3.Climate stress—From changes in the makeup of our atmosphere.4.Population stress—Arising from differences in the population growth ratesbetween rich and poor societies, and from the spiraling growth of megacities inpoor countries.
 
5.Environmental stress—From worsening damage to our land, water,forests, and fisheries.6.Energy stress—From the increasing scarcity of conventional petroleumproducts.2. Most people don’t want to acknowledge the reality we face.“People don’t seem to realize it that it is not like we’re on the
Titanic 
and wehave to avoid the iceberg,” says Rob Watson, CEO and Chief Scientist of TheEcoTech International Group, who Pulitizer-Prize winning author Tom Friedmancalls one of the best environmental minds in America. “We’ve
already hit theiceberg 
. The water is rushing in down below. But some people just don’t want toleave the dance floor; others don’t want to give up on the buffet. But if we don’tmake the hard choices, nature will make them for us.”It’s difficult to imagine that we are in the midst of the biggest shift in humanhistory, but here we are.John Petersen is President and Founder of the prestigious Arlington Instituteand is considered to be one of the most informed futurists in the world.In his book,
 A Vision for 
2012, he says, “Converging trends strongly suggestthat the world – and our country – are about to experience the greatest changeand disruption known in our history. The next half dozen years will likely seerapid, global climate change coupled with the beginning of the end of thepetroleum era and a reorganization of the planetary energy regime, a major shock to the global financial system, unprecedented food prices, and the growingpossibility of wild card events.” [Wild card events are things that are essentiallyunpredictable, but could happen, such as a pandemic or world war that wiped outa large portion of the population].3. Other people feel hopeless about the future and have given up.It’s no accident that depression is on the rise throughout the world. More andmore people are feeling the affect of these changes and many people feel likegiving up. They lose themselves in the escapes of alcohol and drugs, T.V., andthe Internet. Men who have been most successful are often the most vulnerable.“Women seek help—men die.” This conclusion was drawn from a study of suicide prevention. They found that 75% of those who sought professional helpin an institution for suicide prevention were female. Conversely 75% of thosewho committed suicide in the same year were male. Since depression is asignificant risk factor for suicide and men receive less treatment for depressionthan do women, it is clear that men are particularly susceptible to feels of hopelessness and despair that can lead to death.
