There are few events in history that demand the attention of the entire world and shape it, events like industrialism, WWII and colonialism. But no event is more foreseeable and will be more influencial than the pending oil crisis. This is serious stuff people. Modern civilization is built around oil, think about it. Transport is only possible because of oil, how much of the stuff do you use is actually produced in your own country? Not alot. But then again industries need oil to produce goods. So does mining, farming, tourism, public transport, etc, etc. Here are some sites with info: http://healthandenergy.com/oil_crisis.htm http://www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net/ http://www.peak-oil-crisis.com/ I really hope that people start thinking about this, talk about this and find alternatives.
