Why We're All Gonna Die

   By buttersquash at 2:52 AM

This article in Rolling Stone, "The Long Emergency" by James Howard Kunstler, paints a grim picture of the inevitable results of shrinking oil production.

This is not merely ranting from an eco-fanatic. Even the Department of Energy is quoted as saying about the fact that we have reached peak oil production in 2005, and that from now on, each year will see less oil production: "the world has never faced a problem like this. Without massive mitigation more than a decade before the fact, the problem will be pervasive and will not be temporary."

Meanwhile, our moronic "leaders" keep pushing idiotic "solutions" in the way of illegally invading sovereign nations, thus enraging the very people we're going to have to depend on for a shrinking share of future oil resources, with China as a growing competitor.

Despite this, American idiots continue driving SUVs and guzzling oil like there's no tomorrow. Well, tomorrow is here.

See, the sick thing is, they HAVE technology that would make oil based fuel obsolete in vehicles. The thing is, oil companys are some of the largest in the world, it's HUGE business, billions on billions of $. and they outright supress the technology to retain their huge profits. Not only is that nuts, but it's killing the planet, and it's the only one we got. Thats why i don't think there is going to be a huge , mad-max esque, end of the world when the oil runs out. The big oil, will just invest in the technology that they themselves held back for years, and retain their profit. We're on to you you greasy bastards. buy me a house in the country for my silence!! ROFL. No really, where's my house *&^$!@!! I want my hush money.. damnit.! I digress. I want a car that runs on jesus juice, burboun. You could run a car on burboun for sure, if you converted an engine to do so. You ever drink burboun?? BELCKHH!!...nasty, nasty stuff
