77. DOOMER TYPE #2: THE FULL THROTTLE "SURVIVOR"
We seem to have ferreted out the next specimen in our ongoing study (#74) of the effects of the "peak oil message" on humans:
It is also common amoungst many forum members that if we conserve the energy the decline will be more gradual and perpetuate the problem of peakoil on the enviroment and prolong human suffering. If we go Full Throttle which will happen anyway, the decline will be instantious and the energy production will decline much faster causing a quick dieoff which would benifit the enviroment for the people left who were prepared than a gradual dieoff which would decimate most of the natural ecosystems making it much harder for the people left to live. --Dukat. (Source: see the comments for #75.)Isn't it interesting how the doomers craft these elaborate excuses for wasting fuel? Yet again, "peak oil awareness" doesn't seem to be having the intended effect. PO awareness doesn't lead to conservation and sustainable local agriculture. It leads to insane little schemes for massacring humanity, which (conveniently) can be furthered by making as many useless trips to Taco Bell as you can in your SUV.
