The Deprogramming Continues
I have ended up here, and here is at the peak of global oil production and consumption. Since I started reading about the subject, I've felt like I've been watching a horror film at a movie theatre and the scene starts where the unsuspecting teenager decides to investigate that strange noise coming from a dark wooded area miles and miles from civilization and nearest neighbor. It's so frustrating to see the horror that's about to take place and feel utterly helpless in doing anything about it. I started this blog to raise awareness about fossil fuel depletion and America's addiction to them, but mostly to keep from feeling so utterly helpless.
Our path has already been set in motion and the fallout from oil depletion will occur no matter what we do now, but I believe if a significant portion of the population is informed about the issue and the alternatives available, in the terms of Richard Heinberg, the collapse of our society as we know it can be managed.
