78. DOOMER TYPE #3: THE PARTYER
Here's another logical response to becoming "peak oil aware". We're all going to die soon in a peak oil die-off which will make the Black Death look like a birthday party. So we might as well live it up, and enjoy all the modern conveniences while we still have them:
The world is in a truely dire situation. Lots of people have nothing to loose in the game for resources. Lots of people will be desprite enough and feel they have enough power to win the endgame. A lot of people are greedy and will do all the wrong things when dealing with the largest problem humanity has ever faced. All we are left to do is prepare in any way that we can, to hope for the future, and to try to spread the knowledge and the truth. Life poses many problems ahead, how we will react to them is unknown. All we do know is that the life we are living in today, may not be there tommorow. Live it up, love life, and prepare for the gloomy days ahead, for theres really not much we can do but prepare for whats comming our way. Depressing, yes. Hopeful? Not really. Loving my video games and driving my car... every second of it. --skateari SourceNote, once again, that peak oil awareness does not lead to sustainable practices. It leads to just the opposite: increased demand for every unsustainable product offered by the modern world because now is the last chance to enjoy them before the big die-off. Also note that (as usual) doom provides a convenient excuse for continuing your rampant consumption of gasoline.
