i’m not crazy. promise.

mom,

i know you don’t wanna believe that the world is changing. but it is. this isn’t a wingnut weirdo phase i’m going thru. i just got lucky to have to good fortune to hear about it a few minutes before it happens.

but here’s the score. we (we in the global sense, not the national sense) are reaching the defining era of our time. not ‘our time’ like my lifetime and yours and kids being born now. but our epoch which will be defined by the coming events. we are running out of oil.

The disparity between increasing production and declining discoveries can only have one outcome: a practical supply limit will be reached and future supply to meet conventional oil demand will not be available.

Cheap oil underpins our current lifestyle. It provides cheap transport by car or bus, cheap food, cheap goods, cheap manufacturing, cheap energy, and cheap products. It runs national and international trade.
-yemen times

we depend on oil (and to a smaller degree other fossil fuels that are also rapidly running out) for almost every single facet of our way of life. that way of life will very forcibly come to a painful, irrevocable end.
soon.

i’m not the only that thinks so either.

love,
sb
