Everyone on the planet can feel that a significant change is in our immediate future. No matter what crisis befalls you, whether natural, human-made, or a personal disaster, there are steps you can take to prepare. Little preparation tips can make a big difference for yourself and your family in the future.

How fast can our world change? Many scientists insist that significant changes on our planet happen slowly over time. However, we have found mammoths with their breakfast flash frozen in their mouths. How could the animal have frozen so quickly without extreme climate change? Petrified coastal redwoods have been located on the California coast, where they don’t grow, showing a rapid drop in elevation. Cities have been found buried in the oceans off the shores of contemporary ancient metropolises, showing that there was a very different coastline in the past. Other ancient structures built of gigantic stone are now strewn about like tinker toys, a feat that could have only been accomplished with a massive flood. Given these examples, we have to wonder how fast massive climate changes could happen.

When this change happens, how will society respond? Self-defense is an essential skill to know in any situation but even more importantly at this time. People without food quickly become desperate, and the threat of injury from bladed weapons is a concern. If you are impacted by a bladed weapon, whether in a defense situation or while working, you might not know where that piece of metal was before it was stuck in you. Infection is a significant concern. In the past, antibiotics have proven to be a difficult thing to stock for a future rainy day. Many people turned to fish antibiotics, but now there is another option. Jase Case Medical can provide you with a resource to obtain these precious medications. They have doctors on staff to help you. Go to and use coupon code PBN10to get 10% off.

In any survival situation, diarrhea is your enemy. Your water must be purified! It is absolutely essential to keeping you healthy. Even the water you use for cooking needs to be purified first. Diarrhea dehydrates your body and can limit your ability to be away from a bathroom without an embarrassing incident. Even the container you use for capturing the purified water needs to be sanitized. I recommend the Alexapure filter at

Food is not as essential as water but still a basic necessity. You must know how to preserve any extras that you might obtain. For example, if you were to have the opportunity to hunt a big animal or catch a lot of fish, what would you do with the food you can’t immediately eat? Meat and fish can be dried into jerky over the coals of a fire. Its shelf life will depend on the accuracy of your smoking efforts, how thin you cut the meat, the fat content of the flesh, and the salt content you can add to it. If you want to know more about food preservation and wild foraging, visit:

Food shortages are going to impact our planet in the near future. It is no longer a matter of if but when. You must start stocking now. Any money you spend on canned goods or long-term food supplies is a quality investment because the prices will only increase. You can buy a four-week supply, help the show and get $50 off your order at Start practicing growing your own foods and encourage your community and local farmers to do the same. Keep in mind that access to fertilizers and pesticides is becoming more and more difficult. You need to research natural growing techniques like growing a secret survival garden.

When a human-made or natural disaster impacts a large geographic region, the government will send FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and the National Guard to assist. The individuals who make up these groups probably have the best interest of the victims in mind. However, history like hurricane Katrina has shown that often, the victims are rounded up and housed in a centralized area. During Katrina, the crime rate inside the Super Dome, where everyone was sheltered, was so bad that they had to evacuate the medical teams inside the Super Dome. If you encounter armed soldiers, you may not have a choice whether you go into the camp or not, but if you have the option, don’t go unless it is a life-and-death situation. Hopefully, you took steps to prepare to weather the storm or have an alternate location where you can seek refuge. Anytime you are asked to surrender your firearms, a red flag should go off in your head. If you are not allowed to defend yourself, is it really a place of refuge?

As natural disasters become more severe, we must bolster our local communities. Fires, earthquakes, flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, and droughts, every year they seem to get more powerful. If one of these disasters is possible in your area, check out learn how to prepare. It is your choice to depend upon your government or yourself to survive.

One has to wonder how the government would respond to a national disaster. The government would have to perform triage much like any smaller disaster scene. FEMA will have to decide what areas are worth pouring relief efforts into and which communities are too devastated to receive assistance. It is a natural reaction to use power to gain control over chaos. It makes sense, but what will happen to the rights of the individuals in these government FEMA camps? We’ve seen evidence of people packed in small rooms attempting to enter the country illegally. Climate refugees are not fiction. Human migration is a problem that the world has to face now.

Leaders in these unprecedented times will have a heavy burden to bear. From studying historical leaders tasked with unifying large geographic regions, we can see that psychological problems develop more often than not. Soldiers, police officers, and rescue workers tasked with controlling these refugees will have some difficult ethical decisions. Climate refugees can destabilize entire countries, or they can add a unique flavor to a colorful world. It is up to us to decide how our human race faces the uncertainty of a future on a Changing Earth.
