As the disasters and pandemic and economic hardships and everything have piled up worldwide, it has crossed my mind to publish an updated edition of my book.
But I decided all it really needs is a preface. Here’s the preface, dated May 2022:
A lot has happened since 2017 when I wrote this book. Everything that’s happened — intensified storms; droughts; wars; pandemic; social upheaval; community violence; housing crunch, worsening income inequality, and other widening economic hardship; disruptions in supplies of food and other essential goods; fuel shortfalls — just underscores the ideas I’m promoting in this book; just makes the information and suggestions herein more valid and valuable.
