It looks like the NWO has finally found the global crisis needed to get public support for a "global" solution. Combine the oil costs with the UN global warming "crisis" and what do you get?

A great "cause" that will lead people to willingly turn over their rights to the NWO in exchange for being "saved" from the crisis.

But the only way a "global solution" would work is to either get everyone on board or to just kill all the ones who don't agree.

We've gotten too attached to the perfect world of Star Trek without realizing the irrationality of overcoming the greed of mankind. We are not, by nature, altruistic. For most of us, it is a conscious choice, and to expect the entire world to make that choice is unfathomable.

Who are the major elements in this unified world you are referring to?

USA
China
Russia
European Union

What will the elements of this deal be?
How will a deal reduce the insane growth in the worlds fuel consumption?

No deal which commands the deceleration of the rapid industrialization of the planet will be accepted by those 4.

They only way out of this mess is to outlaw the gasoline automobile.

Zero new production. Let the auto companies make something highly efficient and alternative. You can't sell that with negotiations. You need to force people to it through desperation.

Before you can sell that, you need would definately need to starve people into submission.

I am afraid that we are at a point where people will not cooperate sufficiently to save their own lives by doing without. We would rather think that some other poor soul will be the one to perish. This is exactly the same thing that we saw in the 1970s. The difference this time is that the game is a much larger scale.

The poorest of the world will die in droves. The rest of us will be driven to our knees, and learn to live a simpler more localized lifestyle.

Lots of jobs will be lost, new ones will spring up.

Personally I think we will be happier when we get off the treadmill of competative consumption.

It wasn't me that suggested a "global solution" to high oil prices. It was the British Prime Minister. Perhaps he should explain what type of global solution he has in mind.

Think globally, act locally is the solution. Globally something needs to be done to reign in speculators who are artificially driving up the prices, the planet also needs to recognize that human caused cliamte change is a fraud and a farce and remove themselves from the chains of opression the Al Gores of the world have shackled them in. Locally we need to open up ANWAR, build new refineries, institue laws to protect the oil industry (and no, I'm not talking about "big oil" here, I'm talking about all oil) in much the same way as we've instituted livestock/produce anti-defamation laws that will hold people accountable when they demonize oil or attempt to paint it as a scientifically unproven finite resource, finally we need to pull every cent of subsidy going into biofuels as they are a miserably failed experiment, and redirect those funds into researching the most economical process for extracting oil from oil shale and tar sands, and then fund building the facillities and equipment needed to obtain that oil.

Peak oil is a farce. Oil is abiotic and plentifull, we simply have a large segment of our leadership that lacks the balls to admit they've been chasing snipes for the last 25 years with their claims that oil is finitie and only produced via decomposition of carbon based lifeforms. There is simply no explanation for deep shell oil deposits other than a geologic source for oil. It is a by-product of geothermal activity inside the Earth caused when temperatures concentrate hydrocarbons under high pressure, forming crude, natural gas, and methane. Until America and the world wake up to this fact and start to actually question issues like global warming and peak oil, we are completely at the mercy of speculators and fear mongers.
