Is anyone else aware of this and the very serious crisis that will follow it? Without oil we can't support 6 billion people, more like 2 billion. And apparently it's supposed to begin pretty soon, in maybe a decade. I really hope they're wrong in that prediction, but it makes sense based on what I've been reading. And also, oil IS a finite resource, it will be gone someday. This oil crisis is a certainty, it WILL happen sometime, the question is when, and it looks like it will be sooner rather than later. We are about to live through the biggest societal collapse ever in human history. It will be the most significant event we've ever faced. For more info, there's a thread on the "Globalization" forum you can read, or Google "peak oil".
