yes! There are other sources of energy. But the problem is... To build these infrastructures "YOU WILL NEED OIL!" not only for the trucks or
machinery who will be used to build them. But also, oil, comes in the fabrication of plastic part, rubber.... Also remember that most electronic and
parts for whatever comes mainly from China, India and all those poor country where cheap labor attract coorporations. But these guys will be the
first to feel the oil shock. Therefore putting an halt to all export! Bye Bye Nikes running shoes and all these product build on the other side of
the ocean. Do a test at home. Take everything you like, then check where it was made. Take off anything that is imported. You may have an american
car, but lot's of parts are built oversea.
To be able to go through the oil crunch, we should keep the existing oil for goods production only. Transportation would have to rely on something
else. But in the land of SUVs that is almost impossible. Especially if we go through a major reccession. Wich compagny will still exist to make
them? Wich compagny will survive the crash?
Oil is an addiction. just like a drug addict, the problem is not running out of dope. The problem is knowing that you have none or barely any left.
what happen then? Well you stop sharing for one. Second you might have to fight over the remaining drug. And as a junky, even if you know you have
little left, you still continue to consume the same dosage each time. even though you know you have to rationalise it. Once you take the last shot,
your buzz will be the worst badtrip you ever experienced. Cause then you will go crazy to find anything. Some succeds and manage to find another
small stash, or better, steal it from another one. Just imagine this... Fill up a stadium with junkies. First you provide the dope to everyone.
After a while they get used to it and are addicted. Now your supplier tell you there ain't enough dope to fill the demand in the stadium. You will
have to cut some in their next shot. It start with one junky not having his shot. So far so good, the crowd is still happy. Except for one. Cut 2
guys and what happen? Well they are most likely to unite to go steal some from somebody else. So after a while, how many depraved do you think it
takes to start a total chaos in the stadium? The stadium being the earth in comparison, no exit doors.
