From the Wilderness office burglarized
I have just received a phonecall from Mike Ruppert. The FTW offices
have been burglarized, the doors smashed with sledgehammers and every
computer broken. Mike's fine (thank God!!!) and I believe we know who
did it but FTW is non-operational at this moment. However, the blog
is up and running.
Thank you for you patience.

“Everyone who is concerned about Peak Oil needs to see this film.
Cuba survived an energy famine during the 1990s, and how it did do so
constitutes one of the most important and hopeful stories of the past
few decades. It is a story not just of individual achievement, but of
the collective mobilizations of an entire society to meet an enormous
challenge.” - Richard Heinberg, author of The Party’s Over, Powerdown
