173. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE DOOMER SITE?
Peak oil doomer sites have sprouted like mushrooms all over the internet, and I think it's high time they had their own awards show. LATOC is just the tip of the iceberg. We've yet to grasp the true breadth and depth of all the great stuff out there.
Here's my nomination:
Gotta love that Prepare to Survive The Suffering catch phrase.
And of course, what would a doomer site be without the obligatory reference to fertilizer made from oil. Check out the link to "products made from oil", and sure enough, there it is filed under F: fertilizer.
Here's some great doomer copy:
Nations will begin fighting (have begun fighting) for oil and natural gas to save their economies. As people are unable to pay higher prices for manufactured products, employers will begin layoffs and unemployment will increase. The unemployed will not be able to buy, and businesses will close creating more layoffs and homelessness. Protests, riots, and crime will increase and the response will be martial law, a police state, and government seizure of weapons, foods, and medicines for emergency relief and control. All of the efforts to control and protect remaining resources will ultimately fail. This spiral of war, failing businesses, and social decay will get worse in all nations as oil and natural gas resources are depleted.
And of course, the de rigueur Warning!!
Warning:I was kind of bummed out when the "EXIT" button at the end didn't take me to disney.com, so we'll have to dock a few points there.
The following may be very traumatic to think about. We will need all our strength and courage to deal with the consequences of what "peak oil" means. We can handle the truth and we have the right to know what the most frightening and challenging issue is that we are facing in the world. Knowing what difficulties are in front of us is the first step in choosing for ourselves how we will react. If this is the first time for you to learn about the worlds energy situation (oil and natural gas) then you will need some time to think about these coming events, and more time to do your own research to fully satisfy your mind and affirm your ability to get through the difficult times ahead. If you are not ready for this now you can come back later. EXIT
