Freaking you out on a Wednesday
Writes The New York Times; Oman's Oil Yield Long in Decline, Shell Data Show. Despite advanced technology, like (Norwegian pioneered) horizontal drilling, Oman's oil fields are going empty. Update: From the comment by AMH: BBC writes about Norway's oil fields going empty on the same day as I wrote this piece. Good timing and well worth a read)
There are several articles being written on declining oil production, but people seem to do nothing else than barely taking notice. To quote Stupid Evil Bastard, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? Going nuts about a boob at the Superbowl, caring about your fifteen minutes of fame, reading tabloids, yet barely noticing that -- if we do not advance at several levels; technologically, ecologically, ethically and intelectually to name a few -- there will be no more oil in the world whithin the scope of your lifetime.
Argh. Peak Oil has been discussed for ages. Let me quote a few sacry passages from Life After the Oil Crash:
Almost every current human endeavor — from transportation, to manufacturing, to electricity, to plastics, and especially food and water production — is inextricably intertwined with oil and natural gas supplies.
It is estimated that the world's population will contract to between 500 million and 2 billion during the Oil Crash. (Current world population: 6.4 billion)
Anytime an avowed leftist and liberal icon like Michael Moore is in complete agreement with a member of the Bush administration, it's safe to say the shit has hit the fan.
If I ruined your day, good. You will somehow thank me for it when the shit starts to land on rich people's platters. In the meantime, start spreading the word, and start saving for a self-sustained house...
