I’m sorry parents, I just found out the peak oil myth is not a myth anymore

Since the beginning of the 21st century, the words Peak Oil have waxed and waned with the media. And now into 2007 they have nearly been forgotten as the threat of global warming has taken hold in the

imaginations of the everyday citizens of the world. But the peak oil myth is a very real threat that will affect us all in the not too distant future. There is going to be an accumulation of threats affecting us and they are not myths.

Peak oil is when the world starts to run out of oil and that is happening now.

Most respected independent oil geologists all seem to say “The cheap, easy oil is gone” and we are left with dwindling supplies of expensive oil. But how does the peak oil myth affect us? Well, in every way, as nearly everything in our lives comes from oil.

But the big worry is food as all our food comes from oil.

Modern agriculture just turns oil into food and when the oil goes, the food goes with it. And that will cause lots of problems. I think the Chinese Olympics will go down in history as the turning point in western civilization. And the future does not look good at all. Sons and daughters being drafted into oil wars, massive earth-wide famines coupled with the collapse of civilization as we know it.

So what do you do? Well right now live life to the max, because the good times are going to end, so make the most of them while they last. And start to formulate your Plan B in your mind because Plan A, business as usual, is going to collapse sooner than you think.
