Scary doc

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by thereligiouswrong, Feb 22, 2008.

  1. I'm a documentary junkie, and I just saw a good one: "A Crude Awakening." If you're a Netflx or Blockbuster user, I highly recommend it.

    In a nutshell, it's the history of oil and the planet's future without it.

    Basically, we're fucked. Earth, according to this great doc, can only sustain about 1-2 billion people when it runs out of oil, which is about 30-50 years down the road.

    Earth has more than 6 billion people, at least 9 billion by 2040. You can do the math.

    I will stop whining now.

    Even more reason to vote all the Big Oil cronies out of office and get cracking on fuel cell technology.

    And, oh by the way, THAT is an effective and appropriate use of a noose.

    The nuclear holocaust that will take place because of the imminent shortage will get us before anything else.

    Well, that or a massive plague.

    Happy Friday, motherfuckers.

    I'm not all about living green but when I finally buy a house I'd like to look into solar power. Of course no homeowners association would ever approve such an "eyesore" as I assume they'd declare panels to be. I also wouldn't be opposed to a small windmill in the back yard, yet another contraption that would never get approved. It's really just selfish reasons I want these things. I want to be able to depend on myself for my power and not a company that will take a week's pay each month. Being green is just a good side effect of my selfishness.

    Don't move into a neighborhood that has a homeowners association and you can do whatever you want.

    I love living in the country.

    And, that is usually a problem.

    Homeowners associations are still a minority situation.
    Also, if you want to see a great documentary, rent "King of Kong: A Fist Full of Quarters."

    There's a house in my neighborhood (with an association) with solar panels. Most associations are getting a little more lenient about those things.
  12. Thanks, I just put it in my Netflix queue.
