Our friends at Green Daily are taking a look at the end of oil as part of their " End of the World Files." Most entertaining line: peak oil "could have Mad Max-like implications for industrial society." We can put a few numbers on this by looking at Autoblog, which talks about an Energy Watch Group study that finds that in 2030, oil companies will be producing half as much oil as they do today. For their part, the oil companies say we can keep pumping as much as we are today for the next 42 years or so.
If the oil crunch isn't enough to worry you, Green Daily also has End of the World files on climate change, pandemics, rocks from space and the singularity. Good times?
