Between peak oil and global warming, sorry climate change, they're two issues that are being used to constantly make us feel GUILTY for LIVING, and to make us PAY excessively for the privilege.
I think you've hit the nail on the head, SpaceJockey. Guilt is heavily used by TPTB. We are supposed to feel guilty for breathing, for eating meat, for driving vehicles, for using plastic, for using too much water, for eating too much of any kind of food, for everything they hope to charge us for.
I'm surrounded by oil production where I live. In fact, Texas increased its oil output from 2010 to 2011. Peak oil is an inside joke around here.
