One of the themes that emerged as I wrote The Lucifer Bug was the vital importance of advance preparation. My aim was to have the survivors get through the crisis in a state where they were not merely existing, but able to preserve their capability to do useful science and contribute to the restoration of some kind of civilisation. Working back from this it was fairly clear what resources would be needed - a secure base, enough food to survive for an extended period, the ability to generate power, transport, communications and the capacity to preserve knowledge.

In the articles below I explore some of the preparation that can be done now, because to wait until the catastrophe has happened is to leave it too late.
