I read much of that report. It occurs to me there should be motivation for some peakers to keep non-peakers in the dark, also. Even the Hirsch Report said 10 years before peak oil occurs would be needed for a crash program to be implemented, like Moon Landing or a Manhattan Project level.
Here we are, a mere 5 years from 2017, and this country is more divided against itself than at probably any other time since before the Civil War, and with no end in sight. No end in sight for the various debt problems either, not a great time to try and finance peak oil mitigation.
Mitigation is unlikely and if enough people figure out in a few years that things are going down the crapper permanently, we might see a run on guns, ammo, seeds, fruit trees, tools, solar equipment, etc, thus driving up the prices for peakers who are not finished preparing.
I once prayed my fellow man would lose his ignorance; now I think I should pray that they stay ignorant for as long as I need to finish prepping.
An ideology is by definition not a search for TRUTH-but a search for PROOF that its point of view is right
Equals barter and negotiate-people with power just take
You cant defend freedom by eliminating it-unknown
Our elected reps should wear sponsor patches on their suits so we know who they represent-like Nascar-Roy
