Since I had some time tonight online, I have been reading some interesting, intelligent articles. (Yes, there are some out there in cyberspace!)
Here's a link and excerpt to an important article that everyone should read:
The End of Easy Oil
We are headed into uncharted territory, led by a government that seems prepared to use force, when necessary, to preserve the current system. We face growing competition from other countries for a finite resource at a time of growing animosity toward the United States.
And here's a few more article links you might want to check out:

Why 2004 Will Be Remembered as the Year World Oil Production Peaked
Marshall Auerback on oil surprises
Yep, some EXCELLENT food for thought. It is going to be a rough, violent, uncertain future for humans -- not just here, but worldwide.
Oh, and by the way, has anyone EVER dared suggest that perhaps, just maybe...curbing the overwhelming POPULATION could be a partial answer to the growing lack of oil? Why no...no, of course not. That would be just too...REASONABLE.
