The Overpopulated Planet
At the moment near the beginning of 2008, western civilization as we know it could be on the way out. We have so many catastrophic possibilities in the near future that mankind as a whole should be doing something about them but all we are doing is denying it.
In the background we have peak oil which should be the Number One concern for the future, but what are we doing. Just denying it and hoping it will go away. After watching the National Geographic program about cars in China, I came away with the conclusion they have no idea about peak oil. The manager of a car company was wanting to increase production into the future. I could understand if he was pumping out electric cars but all his ran on gas. Things like that don’t make sense when the world is running out of oil.

- Will Peak Oil Collapse Civilization As We Know It?
Peak oil is one of the biggest things to hit mankind since the atom bomb. They both have the power to destroy mankind, but one we keep a close eye. And the other we carry on as if it doesn’t exist.
- We Are Living In The Last Days Of Oil
At a time when the world should wake up to peak oil there is very little activity in the news or on the peak oil blogs. Only the die hard peak oil websites have any recent news on them. The rest, nothing, zippo, nada.
- Will We Survive The Future
Actually the future looks very bleak with global warming and peak oil dominating our future and they are there to give our kids something to look forward too. I think there is very little we can do to limit or stop global warming but we should prepar
But our biggest problem is population
We are reproducing ourselves off the planet. And all our future catastrophes are basically tied to population. Peak oil, global warming and peak soil are all tied together with food production. But when all three come together at the same time we are in a spot of bother. And it looks like they are all converging, and the big problem is I will live to see it and I am 50.
Civilized man has survived for around 10,000 years and even with the future not looking too bright we will still survive but we will not be living off oil. I will just finish with another reference to National Geographic and this time their Africa series from a few years ago. The documentary followed the lives of 4 young people and they all lived without oil so there is hope for mankind still. Humans possibly started in Africa and it looks like they will continue in Africa.
