What would happened if we lost all power and were not able to use all the wonderful electronic stuff and gadgets that many of us take for granted? It happened to me recently and I realized how exposed we are to many natural and human made disasters which can easily destroy the modern world we live in. Should we start planning ahead for disasters which could wipe out the power grid, and change our lives for a long period of time, or is it better to just hope for the best? We have come to rely on and trust technology so much that I think we would be lost without it

Hi - I am going to get that book. Personally I now honestly believe we would find it difficult to manage without our technology.
Thanks for your reply Jim. How would you manage without modern communications systems, power and computer technology?
Man has never lost a technological advance since emerging from the Dark Ages. We know too many ways to generate electricity to totally lose power. The threat is that we will make our world uninhabitable for humans.
