Sorry if this has been discussed before (i tried a search and didn't see anything) but it is a little worrying! Some links for those who like me had actually not heard of just how bad things could be. http://www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net/Introduction.html http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/3777413.stm http://www.dynamiclist.com/?worldview/peakoil http://www.metroactive.com/papers/sonoma/06.09.04/oil-0424.html Just a few links there but in a nut shell it seems we can kiss goodbye to life as we know it before long. Alternatives, as you read through seem to offer little either. Is the future for everyone, and i do mean everyone rather grim?!
