Short form, this is manmade event of depopulation.
Now, humanity pulls together in crisis. A huge percentage have tools and many generators, and organized efforst and store parts, recycled parts, will
build many more generators, rechargeable battery packs, you can even use a berdini scooter to recharge car batteries, refresh them. You can carefully
drain the lead and acid from car batteries and replace with alkaline.
People can replace oil. They don't need gas. Methane and biofuels made out whats at the dump,scraps, even the debris in forrests, weeds, grasses.
Human and animal wastes.
Not to mention those bubblers and HHO.
So in short, if we're scrambling to cooperate and share and eek out supplies and those who are supposed to be using our funds to do this locally and
regionally and nationally in emergencies all go underground, I'm not sure they're going to be in power any longer, in fact, I suggest any casualties,
and diseases and radioactive substances, get thrown down their air shafts not to mention direct action taken.
People will be pissed, so locating these bases to make sure they get a good dose of WHAT LACK OF SERVE AND PROTECT WILL GET THEM, is only a good
thing. No hero's, then they're zero's and they won't be boss anymore.
If humanity pulls it together, they could spend a short while getting power to stores primarily and biofuel to their big trucks and suppliers,and
people can still hold down the necessary jobs and food productions, and gradually power to everyone, and life could continue without Bankers, Oil
Companies or slimy toads for leaders, for only hero's may apply.
