    watched the Docu-film "Collapse" the other night... Basicaly what it says is that we hit peak oil (back in 2000-ish) This basicaly means that oil production is going to decline, and fast. When this happens, and it is already happening, the world is going be drained of accessable oil... no more fuel, no more plastic, and no more money, possibly a complete halt in most of the worlds production, and transportation, of anything... at least internationaly. It COULD happen in our life time, it already is happening, but im talking about complete accessable oil depletion.

    So, whats ur plan? :)

    Drop acid, walk around and watch the collapse of the human species. If we knew that all the oil in the world was going to be drained... why didn't... stop... drill... GAH!!!!!!!!!! We are so dumb, I mean really dumb.

    Oh shit, the Jews would pull a move like that. I say... you know that's been said before and the guy that said it ate cyanide later, so I'll just leave it at that.

    Estimates suggest that natural gas could run out by 2030, i think sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind energy will come to the forefront over the next ten years. There are already schemes by which installing pv panels will actually make you money, so this is the way i think things will go for the majority. Oil is obviously as completely different issue, and i think the human race will eventually fuck up the planet trying to get it. The latest oil leak should hopefully prove a big wake up call to the industry. Surly drilling for oil deeper than the safe limit for any dive is only gonna cause problems. I can imagine things will change dramatically over then next 10 years.

    a lot of the patents for renewable sources are owned by oil companies etc, there won't be any decent developments available until they have squeezed all they can out of oil, which won't run out for fuckin ages, as they can always magically find more. the reason for the rumours is so that they can keep jacking prices, no one can prove them wrong really, such bullshit!
