Things are going to get harder every year
Things are going to get harder every year until the world reaches equilibrium because of declining fossil fuels. That means you will struggle to get manufactured goods, pay for heating or pay for vehicle fuel.
We can off set this by using renewables such as wind and solar.
Grow sugar and plants for oil to make fuel.
We can reduce the world population by giving men cuddles by a flaming sword as to not have children but to keep them happy.
You can also help by growing some of your own food.
