Less Oil More Blood

The Long Emergency
I was re reading articles on AnotherMan and I stumbled on an article by James Howard Kunstler titled The Long Emergency.

It was published in Autumn of 2005, and Kunstler basically predicted the global energy crisis and the economic meltdown.

The current world is so dependent on oil that the sharp rise in demand and the shortage of it has created this domino effect of economic meltdown, shortage of natural resources, violent upheaval, geopolitical turbulence, and climate change.

Kunstler basically says that it is too late to ever go back to the way we lived in the past few decades. We have already begun to cry for change, but that change is not going to make much difference to the outcome that is being played out today.

Our civilization will continue on for better or for worse.
