Please note the new page at the top of my blog - Reports and Resources (the font is so dark, it's easy to overlook). I plan to make it a repository for the most authoritative and educational materials available to persuade your friends and families that they need to ACT, and act soon, to prepare for the current and incoming financial/economic/energy upheavals.
Currently, it includes presentations from Chris Martenson and Stoneleigh about the relationship between finance, the economy, and energy/oil, as well as reports from the U.S. Joint Forces, Lloyd's of London, etc (sources that people view as authoritative and credible). This won't be a comprehensive listing, but a very selective one. Your average Joe doesn't know who Richard Heinberg is, but do they know the United States military? Yessirree bob.
I plan to add reports from Roscoe Bartlett and Matt Simmons, among others, and may create a Climate Change section as well. I'll be expanding it over the next few weeks, and hopefully this will become a handy resource for you. Feel free to submit your suggestions for additions (authoritative/high-profile and educational) in the comments. Thanks!
