First of all, the title, "There's No Tomorrow" is proven wrong every morning. Secondly, I happen to know the person who made this cartoon; it took
him seven years while he taught himself the animation. The length of time devoted to it kinda proves that the can keeps getting kicked down the road,
one way or another. I started reading about the 'oil is running out!' idea back over a decade ago now. And everywhere I go, there's cars, trucks,
buses and airplanes still running, more than ever.
While the 'civilization' (and I hesitate to call it that) we are used to may have a limited lifespan, I think that's all to the good. Something
else will rise out of either the ashes, or the combined resources and intellect of people who aren't all running around with their hair on fire.
Look on any number of science, physics or university websites at the amazing things being invented now, and try not to forget that more energy falls
on the planet from the sun in an hour than we could possibly use in a 100 years...
An oil-based economy is ecologically insane and primitive. We have lots of other options. One of the ways to start implementing them sooner rather
than later is to quit the profit motive economy and go towards one where sanity and available resources determines energy use, not whether or not a
meter can be put on it.
