Regarding the Club of Rome, what makes you think that Peak Oil being false will in any way change the 'truth' after world war three really gets
going? For truth in regard to resources, check out a book called "The Unlimited Resource 2" by Julian Simon. He makes the salient point that
efficiency trumps any predictions of Peak Oil.
For example, if you need ten gallons of gas for a particular task, it is possible to extrapolate along that line and predict the future (1 billion
gallons in the earth will last us X number of years and so on).
Except that improvements in efficiency will always continue, if allowed to do so. Eventually, what can be done with ten gallons would be able to be
done with one gallon, thanks to the nature of us smart humans. As a result, the finite useful lifespan of the billion gallons left in the earth can
be used for much, much, longer than the 'Peakers' predict (1 billion gallons would then last X times 10 years).
The problem is that the Club of Rome and other 'Peakers' are also promoters of warfare due to greed and control. So they will ensure that the
'doctrine' of Peak Oil becomes religion, you see? They will curb the x10 driver of human efficiency through war.
As for Alex Jones, he is exactly what he appears to be: A crazy Texas Christian. What did you think they were like, anyway? I don't see him lying
anywhere although in regard to Webb, he clearly jumped the gun. He is child-like in his abrasiveness but you cannot argue with the facts he shows.
No 'photoshopping' of headlines on his videos like Michael Moore (useless turd of a man).
How can anyone dispute his exposing the footage of UN troops practicing camp-excercises where Americans beg to get in while yelling "Give us food!
We are starving! We have children!"? Unlikely that the mass media would show us this.
In any case, the true hero in all of this is Gary Webb. A giant among men and a martyred saint in pursuit of truth regardless of how he died.
