It has become blatantly obvious in the western world that Plan A (business as usual) is a miserable failure, and Plan B (continuing on our present economic path while substituting new energy sources for our vanishing reserves of fossil fuels) is not viable either. It is well past time to examine our options and create a realistic strategy for a post-Peak Oil world. In Plan C: Community Survival Strategies for Peak Oil and Climate Change, Pat Murphy does just this, explaining how changing our behavior in such key areas as food, health, housing and transportation is crucial to our survival.

Richard Heinberg, author of Peak Everything, The Oil Depletion Protocol, The Party's Over and Powerdown, has this to say about the book:

"This is no sugar-coated vision of how great the world could be if only magical new technologies appear to replace fossil fuels. Pat Murphy understands the scale of the challenge facing us and uses his engineering background to peel away the usual false solutions.What's left shines with simplicity and common sense: as the oil age fades to memory, we must use less of Earth's resources and return to traditional virtues. An indispensable book from a wise, compassionate, and practical man."
