Patrick Noble argues that we should make the best of the remaining time we have before collapse occurs "to build islands of a real economy which can emerge more or less intact from beneath the smoke and embers."
"It should be a natural relief to step back inside natural limits. Limits have forms, sounds and scents – we can touch them – taste them. They should feel like home. We’ll be prodigals shuffling homeward from a wild fossil-fuelled adventure to finally open the familiar garden gate," writes Patrick Noble.
