On a related note. I've come to the conclusion in life that in regards to climate change and peak oil. People won't change without strong government intervention. At least, not enough people to reverse the trend.
It really gives me the urge to try and accelerate the collapse, so that some semblance of stability comes quicker.
So who do you trust, if not the scientists? Politicians? Religion? Your gut? Science proves them all wrong time and time again. The jury is not out on global warming. The jury is in and is screaming the message but too many prefer to keep their heads in the sand. The truth is scary, but it's still the truth.
