Peak Oil Show on History Channel Tonight

At 8 pm Pacific Time.

It's good to see Peak Oil finally starting to hit the main media outlets. My prediction will be that, shortly or in several years, Peak Oil will replace Global Warming as the acknowledged immediate danger, though GW and other converging problems will worsen the overall situation.

From tonight's show's outline:


Mega Disasters: Oil Apocalypse

The oil that our world runs on won't last forever. The gap between supply and demand is ever increasing. Will alternative energy save us or is it already too late? What would happen to the world as we know it when our oil dependent industries come to a grinding halt? A worldwide depression is a certainty but a power struggle for the basic necessities of life would be complete chaos.
