What would you do if technology failed? NASA scientists predict an impending solar storm that would destroy satellites and take out the power grid for weeks. Modern infrastructure relies on a delicate system that can easily be broken. Would you be prepared if tomorrow you had power, no cellphone, no running water, no use of credit cards? Mat Stein is the author of When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability & Surviving the Long Emergency, a comprehensive manual on sustainable living skills, survival, and disaster preparations. Stein is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he majored in Mechanical Engineering. Join us to learn about what Stein describes as the “perfect storm” pointing towards the collapse of the delicate infrastructure that supports our way of life. No one wants to see this happen, but what if it did? Do you want to be prepared? We only had to time to get a small glimpse of the knowledge Stein has to share, you can be sure to see him on the show again soon!
