Obviously as most humans are dependant on the grocery stores for their food, the food situation would change drastically.
Access to clean water would change for many.
By change, I mean the sources of these things would be different. Will there be enough for everyone in the effected area? If all humans effected by
the lack of electricity worked together to ensure all had enough, this would eventually be a good thing. I would hope they would respond
Instead of focusing on lack of resources, focus on what is already available, and react accordingly.
I rely very little on electricity. Lights (can be run by a small solar panel or replaced by candles, lamps), and charging of a laptop computer (which
would be not needed without electricity). I use a laundry phicility, but as many humans around the world do, washing clothes by hand is not a
So my day to day life aside from food and water would change little. I am most capable of gathering wild edible plants and fishing, of which there is
an abundance of some types of fish (e.g. Asian carp). So starvation is not an issue. In your yard, there are most likely between 3-5 species of edible
nnot only eat vegetation and you need animal protein, chickens can be fed with only grass and water and will produce eggs. If every household had 3-5
chickens this is an adequate supplement.
Most importantly: in the case of this happening, for YOU to prepare for it, do not inquire as to only, "what resources do I have to survive" but, what
resources do I have and what skills do I have that can be helpful not only for my survival but in order to benefit all around me.
In the case of this happening, your neighbors will need your help, and you theirs. A good incentive to developed a good relationship with your
surrounding area neighbors. Because without electricity, your job, your numbers in the electronic bank, your electric house, favorite TV shows,
favorite news source, etc, this will no longer be what defines you as an perceives individual, so why should it now?
If you are on bad terms with your neighbors for trivial mishaps and petty disagreements you will have to begin building true friendship and neighbor
once the chaos has begun. Why not now?
