Why We're All Gonna DieBy 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.
