That was a good video. I was already aware of nearly all of that, though the perspectives it offers are fairly profound.

We plan on buying our first home in 2012 or 2013, and we've made a goal to be off the grid within 10 years of home ownership. Our criteria in a property are two things: As many acres as possible, and a water feature such as a creek. You can build shops, barns and house additions, but you cannot build a creek. A source of fresh water is paramount to self sufficiency in so many regards.

It has always been a goal of mine to be self sufficient. I'm not sure why exactly, but it's always been something that has appealed to me.

In the event of world economic collapse, all Insight owners are automatically welcome in our compound. lol

I just finished watching this video and how true it is. The world has a limited amount of resources, which countries and an increasing world population is going to be competing for in the near future. In fact, it's happening already.

The only bright spot on the horizon is that we may be able to make plastic when the hydrocarbons run out:

This looks like a possible new energy source that was not discussed in the video, and could really change things.

COLD FUSION NOW! | - Free Energy For All Mankind!
As a Ph.D. former research scientist, I am very skeptical about the promises of so-called cold fusion. If this were based on real science, scientists and corporations would be all over it. Unless physics has it all wrong (or I don't understand cold fusion), the amount of energy required to initiate fusion could not be produced chemically. "Cold" implies low energy, so I don't understand how any low-energy process could initiation nuclear fusion. If this were the case, wouldn't cold fusion be occurring naturally?

I agree! Unfortunately, there was no explicit mention of "growth" including population growth, the real basis of current and future problems. Hopefully, most of those who view this animated cartoon would understand that serious future problems will be almost impossible to solve without a decline in human population. This decline will occur one way or another. Choosing to reduce our population by limiting the number of children born to 1 per couple would certainly be far less dire than a decline due to disease, famine, war, etc. which are inevitable with continued population growth. It's too bad that people don't seem to understand that having more than 2 children per couple is adding to the serious problems that their children will face. The desire to have more than 1 child seems rather selfish considering that the children will be faced with greater problems than their parents.

Talking It looks real to me

Art,
follow some of the links about cold fusion,
MIT, CERN ,NASA, DARPA, and many prestigious labs are all getting positive results.

100% nickel in, copper and iron are produced in the reaction, as much as 40% of the nickle is converted to copper after months of over 500% excess thermal output relative to the electric heater that gets it started. After it gets going, the pressure of the hydrogen and the temperature you let it reach is the throttle, and it can run with no further energy input for months, on a small container of hydrogen, which is consumed at a very low rate in the process.
A thermos sized core could heat not only the hot water, but space heating and electrical, for an average US home for a year.Of course this is all so new, and the basic physics is still being worked out,that the amount of optimization that is possible is still unknown.

The 10KW Rossi unit that has been demonstrated and tested in the labs above has a core the size of a D battery, and it runs for daysproducing over 10KW of heat as hot water or dry steam.

A Mr fusion machine for our Insights may be just around the corner.
At first the name cold fusion was a sure way to not get published, but now, everyone is looking into it, as it seems to be real.
Edmund Storms has some good videos on You tube.

Paladium and heavy water was what Fleshman and Ponds used, but there are several other methods that also produce even more excess energy, with some results showing thousands of times the thermal output compared to what it took to heat it up.

Rossi's going to be revealed as yet another fraudster.
