    Default Aftermath: World Without Oil

    How many people caught this documentary?

    In it, it mentions and shows how England gets coal from the US and, then trains delivering it runs out of oil...

    Electric cannot run anymore grid to grid... it runs on oil.

    Cattle which are bred to feed the people are starving to death...

    Japan which imports 60% of its food is now starving to death...

    the people question should the next field crop be for fuel (corn, ethanol) or for food?

    Good question. What do we eat when staples like corn and sugar are used for fuel?

    The only answer is nuclear power with plug in cars.

    Small cars.

    And public transport.

    Big America is just gonna have to get a whole lot smaller!

    We'll just start up coal gasification and stop shipping it to Britain...

    God has always blessed us with large wars and hideous mega diseases just when the population started to exceed its bounds, as it does now.

    Or pray for a Asteroid of moderate size landing in Iraq.

    And yes, save your used drain oil, vegetable oil, and tires for after the crash. Better than gold!

    Sometimes I don't think people realize how many different kinds of things are made from oil. You can own an electric car but what about its tires? Are they electric tires?

    Even rubber gloves, anything, rubber, is made from oil. I think, a shortage of oil might increase the population.

    There will be a second baby boomer generation.
