Writers pen scenarios for peak oil

Napa Valley, California

BeyondPeak.com,a guide to living sustainably with Peak Oil and economic collapse, announces the winners of its First Annual "Who Knows? Things Might Get Better" Peak Oil Scenario Competition.

Beyond Peak wanted to see if there was anybody out there who was optimistic about Peak Oil, since most projected scenarios predict (quite reasonably) doom and gloom.

Well, some people are optimistic, and can actually present some step-by-step reasons for that optimism.

Beyond Peak has posted 17 of what it feels are the best and most interesting entries, including three prize winners:

Jan's Vision by Jan Steinman
The Silver Lining by Kathy McMahon, and
Return to the Good Years by John Kurt Bledsoe

To read these scenarios, as well as the 14 others that received Honorable Mention,
