My ohpa was an incredibly smart guy, I knew that. But my admiration for him never ceases to increase. After watching this documentary called "A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash"
( http://www.oilcrashmovie.com/ ), I can now see that he was entirely right. This a jaw-dropping, mind-opening film. It provides a wide arrange of opinions on the oil crash, a crash that will occur around 2030-2050. (And yes, even a Republican talks about the oil crash and how it will happen.) It says how the oil production peaked in the US a loooong time ago in the 1930s, and how the world's oil production peaked in 2005.
It is a marvellous documentary, and everyone, including you metal-heads, needs,and should, watch it.
Oil will be nothing more than a small epoch in humankind, that's for sure. But will humankind manage to live without it after it's gone?
The answer: No.
Why? Simply look at these facts:
Current world population: 6.4 billion people.
People in a world without oil? 2 billion (at the most).
The question is, which of those billion people will live?
