  1. Hah… yeah, there is no tomorrow in 99 % of human minds. Now the question is how the rest will fight? What scares me that there is so many climate scientist unaware of peak oil, which is a simpler concept to me than climate change…

      I wonder why you seem so sure that climate scientists aren’t aware of peak oil. It’s my impression that such people are more clued-in to such things — but then I have only a gut feeling on that, no evidence. As for ‘how we’ll fight’, well, the way I see it, in my simple way, is that if we’re to succeed there’ll be no fighting at all. The way forward will be apparent, and we’ll move towards the future together: or, we’ll continue as we have been doing, arguing and struggling, as we take the world down to hell with us.

      • Hi,

        regarding the peak oil and climate scientists – my statement is based on the observation, that climate scientists do not often talk or write about peak oil.. do they?:)

        Also, many of them seem to suggest that solutions to CO2 emissions are there (you know – solar and wind power, efficiency gains etc…) – but it is not so simple at all. It is not a problem of “political will” to deploy them more than we are doing right now… but that is for a longer discussion…

        cheers and good luck, Alex

        That is an interesting debate you fellows are having. Worst case scenario, what will do us in first? At our current rate of consumption of fossil fuels, we’ll “guarantee” warming of more that 2 degrees Celsius in 16 years. Although, the world won’t actually warm that much for another few decades… so I guess peak oil will be an issue.
        By the way, great (although, incredibly depressing) video Pendantry. It’s going on my blog this weekend!

I'd love to hear what your views are!
