Books like this read by masses well in advance of the energy crunch might be the best answer. I live where it is considered posh to be off the grid. If more and more can adopt Burnsian Economics, end the consumptive madness, and find more pleasure in simple living, the energy issue won't be so catastrophic. But having said that, the folks off the grid still depend on materials made of and delivered by oil, or have jobs that depend on oil, and on and on. It would be difficult to live totally insulated from the needs of oil, but I think even tougher will be to live insulated from the anarchy that results from the majority of people who didn't take any steps toward independence in advance - it will certainly be a minority who do.
