Thermo/Gene Collision: On Human Nature, Energy, and Collapse, in The Social Contract, Spring 2007 [2007 February 20]
And I looked, and behold peak oil: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

If you were born after 1960, you will probably die of violence, starvation or contagious disease. Although its news to you, your generation is challenged with a technically-insoluble problem a political problem which will ultimately kill five out of six worldwide or perhaps all. You can not solve this problem because that carbon-based, selfish-gene rational computer on your neck isnt logical!

Jay Hanson is ever the optimist! [Ed]
