    Ok, it's so refreshing to hear a scientist spell it out as it is, not some partisan who wants to make their party or politics look good. This is about the upcoming liquid fuel (oil) crisis based on data and the well know but little understood peak oil theory. This extends beyond oil and has implications for many elements such as gold, silver, copper, etc. mining.

    The US Government knows this from the 2005 Hirsch Report and anybody who has been watching China the last decade knows they take this extremely seriously: from stories in the tech sector of them blocking rare earth minerals, to buying mines all over the globe especially in Africa and Afghanistan.

    We're talking about a potential and total disruption of life which will make the 1970s oil crisis seem mild and the prices from 2008 seem like the good old days. You just need to listen for a few minutes to know that this guy knows what he is talking about and is passing it on honestly:

    It's a lot more interesting than this synopsis makes it sound. Very few scientists can speak well, and this guy is one of them.

    It is a fact that we live on a planet in decline and hardly anyone has a real plan but screw that, drill babay, drill.
