Future Scenarios: How Communities Can adapt to Peak Oil and Climate Change David Holmgren Chelsea Green When I first saw David Holmgren’s Future Scenarios talk and slide at a permaculture design course in Slovenia in I was still quite new to the concept of peak oil and listened transfixed at what seemed to be a detailed vision of the future: not precise predictions but an .
