Editorial Notes: To download the presentations described on this page, go to the original article. Community Solution is a program of Community Service, a long-established group in rural Ohio, dedicated to promoting small, local communities. In recent years, they've become concerned about peak oil and are active in publicizing the problem and developing solutions. Their site at www.communitysolution.org/ is devoted to peak oil. Their other site at www.smallcommunity.org/home.asp emphasizes their work on communities. Their site has a wealth of information. Unfortunately, many of the downloadable files are in Power Point format and are very large. Some of the presentations have extensive notes which you can see by setting the Power Point program to view notes (for example, View | Master View | Notes View). -BA
