when the hydrocarbon economy finally collapses, your job will almost certainly become obsolete. Cities have mass transportation infrastructure available, so that a strong federal entity will be able to ship in food and supplies, but not to the suburbs because they're too spread out and there's no efficient way to do it. The vast majority of suburbs in the United States have no public transportation or rail lines, and without gas for the denizens to power their cars to, they will be stranded.
The suburb I'm in actually has the light rail coming to it. :seeya:
you say you're closer to farms being in the suburbs. Well, fertilizer is a byproduct of the hydrocarbon industry, and the soil in most of the country has been completely destroyed. Without fertilizer, much of the giant farms will be forced to lie fallow for years, and that's if they can get legumial plants to them, which isn't a given.
I had no idea that cow manure and organic waste are a byproduct of the hydrocarbon industry.
furthermore, what in the world could you do on a farm?
do you know how to farm?
Yes. I have the lucky background of having a 100 acre family farm that I am most experienced in working
do you know when to harvest something?
do you know how the planting cycles work?
do you know how to plow a field?
do you know how deep to plant what seeds?
Yes. Any other questions?
there's not going to be any power, you won't be able to look this stuff up.
I don't need to.
but yes once the hydrocarbon economy collapses, which could happen for any number of reasons, your life in the suburbs will collapse almost immediately.
Thanks for your input. You obviously know nothing about me or my background.
