This is a very real concern. People will not take heed until it is too late. By the time it hits, you're fucked.
I have felt this coming for nearly 2 years now, but I am stuck where I am at. We bought our house before the housing bubble, but because of the bubble we could not sell it even if we tried. We really want to buy 3-4 acres of farmland because I already had a plans to change careers into organic farming back when I saw this coming, but we can't find the right land, and we can't sell the house we have now. There are 6 houses for sale all within 1/2 mile of me, and most of them have been on the market for over year.

We have been learning to grow our own food though, and I have quite a library started on organic farming and country living.
