I’m including “money” related issues because energyskeptic is my attempt to write a “wiki” of important posts about the fall of western civilization as we know it from an enormous number of factors. Although a lack of oil to keep heavy-duty vehicles running will be the real reason civilization crashes, most will think it’s due to a financial crash. That’s a good thing since people are likely to behave better if they think it’s yet another bust in a boom-bust economic system. Awareness that its a lack of energy could lead to panic, since a lack of fossil fuels is permanent, enabled an extra 6 billion people to be born, and has no remedy.
