Where should I move in order to maximize my chances of surviving the apocalypse?

Ok, I'm not actually anticipating The Rapture or anything. I've just been reading too much James Howard Kunstler and peak oil stuff.
Based on a few older AskMeFi posts, I spent most of my summer reading old post apocalyptic fiction books and self sufficiency manuals.
I'm not saying that I really buy all these worst case scenarios, but just in case....
I figure that American suburbs with their huge dependence on petroleum products and imported goods will be one of the worst places to reside in.
Let's also assume that global warming is real and that water levels have raised to the most pessimistic projections.
Should I join a commune? Is Europe a better bet? Should I hole up in a third world country? Some place like Brazil that produces its own Ethanol? What are some factors to consider?
I'm mainly interested in environmental scenarios, not so much in being left behind while everyone else is ascending to heaven.
