Ran Out of Oil National Geographic Documentary

Aftermath: World Without Oil [720p]

Our contemporary world is so dependent on technology fueled by oil, and yet oil will not last forever. How will the world change and how will people adapt as food disappears, electrical power fails? Witness the devastation in major cities as winter sets in. What will be more important to our survival; the technology to develop new sources of energy, or a change to a more sustainable way of life?

    Why on earth does the NG choose a scenario where all oil disappears at once, rather than over decades.

    Summary: oil will be gone from one day to the other, there is indeed going to be a dippy of 50 years, but in the end, we will all be fine, sort off, thanks to… biofuel! Even planes will be back in the air. Lithium will be king (batteries) and Bolivia a ‘superpower’ because of it. Electrocars will transport us, all parking lots in NYC will be turned into gardens and we will cycle a lot. End good, all good.

    The usual method by which people adapt to a lack of food is famine and the resulting reduction of population. Those with the best armies survive, while those without the means to obtain food by force are starved to death.

    It’s brutal, but it is the only real alternative to intelligent, compassionate management of population – which people have largely resisted and/or denied the necessity thereof.

    You either act intelligently, or you suffer. We as a species have selected suffering.

    i’ve watched it amd would say it’s worth the watch at least. The senario is not gonna happen but it is fairly decent piece of art explaining our depence on oil. I would watch it… better than watch 90 % of anything else

    A slow burn is too complicated for some people to grasp. At least it might get a few more people thinking about this topic.

    It is an entertainment piece slipped in between ‘The Walking Dead’ and some other mind numbing trivia program. An actual presentation of the facts in a manner that the sheeple could understand would let the collapse cat out of the bag too soon.

    After all,… Who is the owner of the National Geographic Channel?
    Answer:Fox. And Fox is owned by News Corporation which is owned by Rupert Murdoch.
