Outline of the Book:

* Title:
Famine in America by 2050:
the Post-Peak Oil American Apocalypse

* Table of Contents:

1 America's Future: a Short Summary
2 Technology to the Rescue?
   Too Little, Too Late
3 Death in America
4 The American Survivors' Way of Life
5 Epilogue: One Thousand Years

I'm excited about the book,
more now than ever.

I like my table of contents.

I feel as if,
given a little time,
the book will write itself now.

Chapter one,
shortage of oil,
equals shortage of diesel,
equals shortage of crops,
equals shortage of food,
equals famine in America.

Ninety percent of Americans,
dead.

Chapter two,
tractors fueled by
natural gas,
gasoline,
jet fuel,
plus,
electric tractors,
plus,
rationing of all fuels,
plus,
contraception.

All that will happen,
too little,
too late.

Chapter three,
the details of death in America,
how some will go down fighting,
while others let go of life,
gracefully.

Chapter four,
the many kinds of livestock
the survivors will eat:
insects,
duck eggs,
fish,
goat cheese,
goats,
feral hogs,
etc.,
plus sources of food for the livestock.

Chapter five,
a careful focus
on what will work
for a thousand years.

For a thousand years.

Thanks for reading.

Hey,
if you think I forgot to write poetry,
what's this?

 
Chapter three,
the details of death in America,
how some will go down fighting,
while others let go of life,
gracefully.
