Its agreed that China's explosive industralisation has accelerated the onset of Peak Oil so what could possibly be done to counter that? Release a disease that would likely occur in China that is easily transmittable and with a mortality rate of 75-80%.

Does any one suspect that avian flu could of been manufactured to stem Chinas growth?

When we see the outbreak of avian flu in Asia it can be explained away as resulting from the very close co-habitation in that area of the world between birds and humans. But what if it wasnt? Who would gain from decimating China's population?

Having China down to around 300 million people would reduce pressure on the worlds oil reserves and natual resources considerably. Now expand the death toll to disporportionally affect Asia and poorer people in the Western world and you have a nice delaying tactic to buy us a couple of decades more of cheap oil.

Theres means and motive for this folks. Is it really that hard to think that this could be intentional?

Something like Avian Flu would cause such a pandemic as to more likely wipe out a larger portion of the Global population than just the Chinese. However I suppose a smaller Global population means less oil consumtion.

The question I`d ask is if you were gonna go to all the bother of designing all these viruses would n`t it just be easier to come up with new sources of power?

American companies are outsourcing in China in droves because of cheap labor--and China is keeping the U.S. economy afloat by helping finance a large chunk of our trade deficit by purchasing dollars and U.S. Treasury securities. Crippling the Chinese economy would mean hurting U.S. companies and sending our own economy into a tailspin.

Wasnt the flu that was shipped all over the world the 1956 strain of the flu pandemic? I dont think it has anything to do with Avian Flu.

Valid question, but I think that it is somewhat easier to engineer a virus than to come up with a new source of energy. After all, the implications of the peak oil phenomenon are mainly a result of our innability to find a viable alternative to oil.

Paul, perhaps I should have said, would n`t it be easier to invest in those alternatives we already have available to us and make them more efficient and easier to use on a wide scale.

I still do not seriously believe that causing massive death is really a good strategy for control of oil

How isnt it?

The essence of Peak Oil is that demand outstrips supply. Killing off many millions of people in industrialised countries will directly reduce demand for oil.

Yet still does n`t get round the problem of a limited supply. Also oil essentially remains in the control of huge multi national companies who need the money as do the governments who the companies pay their taxes to. Killing large swathes of the global population also kills large swathes of profit. Which I do not believe the greedy capitalists want....

The multinational capitalist oil companies have a pretty small fraction of the world reserves, and it is declining sharply.

Almost all the oil is in the nationalized oil companies of the mideast, Venezuela and Russia.

They have much less efficient technology than the multinationals.
