And You Were Worried About Global Warming?!?

According to the Peak Oil: Life After the Oil Crash Website, we have much bigger problems on the horizon…

Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, bankers, and investors in the world. These are rational, professional, conservative individuals who are absolutely terrified by a phenomenon known as global “Peak Oil.”

The site argues (at length) that the imminent depletion of the world’s oil reserves will have catastrophic consequences for the world economy and population. I’m not buying into the doomsday predictions at this point, but it’s definitely an interesting read.
