Just wondering whether or not anyone here had given any thought to what may occur post peak oil? For those who don’t know the term peak oil; It basically is the point in time when the maximum rate of global petroleum extraction is reached, after which the rate of production enters terminal decline. The way we approach even the most basic of our menial daily tasks will be affected. Creating a dilemma that will cause human culture and modern technological society to change drastically. This change may well come suddenly in the space of days or weeks, or be drawn over years. To be honest it may well already be underway! Just look at the increased cost of anything consumer based in recent years. Imagine waking up one morning and finding that your job is redundant (due to it being Technologically based, or even just reliant on power), and you are short on food and water and cash is not worth the paper it is printed on. On top of all this you are trapped in a city with millions of over people in the same boat! How is it all going to pan out? Would we regress back to an agrarian society? I like to think so, and the damage done by years of high density farming would slowly be undone due to the lack of chemicals,fertiliser and oil. However, how would such a society be set up? The power vacuum left after the demise of fossil fuels could possibly be filled by some of the vast multi national agribusiness giants. However without the means of controlling their large holdings, chances are they could not hold Governments/countries to ransom. I believe there is a chance that Governments, or a Central World Government (NWO) would try to take control of such assets by force in order to quell populations into subservience. Cities would serve no main purpose anymore, apart from possibly becoming havens for black marketeers, opportunists, and most other forms of criminal activity. (Not much different from now! lol) The possibilities are endless, as to how it might go. Point is…are you prepared??
