109. PETROTHEISM: THE QUEST FOR FUEL

My buddy jkl sent in this timely and amusing link:
Petrotheism: The Quest for Fuel

As an added bonus, you're gonna love this. This is the "Y2K TEOTWAWKI" commercial from 1999. Ignore the Y2K references, and pretend that it's the "Day After Peak Oil".

Doomer heaven!!

That Nike Y2K commercial is great! I remember it from back in the day, but I don't know if I saw it on TV or on the web. Cars exploding, riots in the streets, missiles flying about out of control. Those were the days.

I wonder how many Peak Oil doomsters were among those predicting a Y2K disaster? There is still a site up with predictions that people made pre-Y2K so you can get an idea of just how badly worried and scared people were, http://www.ironic.com/y2k/. It really is similar to some of the things you read on the Peak Oil forums.

I saw that advert on tv. I didn't think there was going to be a y2k problem and I was totally unconcerned about it. It's obvious things are now getting worse, Rita could be bad but I do have my doubts. I find it absurd JD comparing peakoil to y2k, granted alot of the same crowd of y2k will be jumping into the peakoil crowd, but that does not dispute the fact peakoil is a serious problem with largly unknown consquences, most likely dire.

Its not right to make fun of an idea (peak oil) just because another completely separated idea (The Y2K) turned out to be false. It doesnt make any sense.

What if the peak oil worst scenarios never materialice but in 40 years a giant asteroid appears on the sky and is about to hit the earth? Would you ridicule the astronomers just because 40 years ago people went crazy about peak oil?
