How to talk to children about what's coming

Hi there,

I have been reading a lot, follow this and similar forums and blogs. I have also started some preparations, such as growing a vegetable garden and stocking some food away in a pantry, learning new skills, etc.

Although I have mentioned (to my children) in a very general way that the times ahead will be difficult, I don’t know how to talk to them about what we call “peak oil” that also includes financial, environmental and other predicaments.
