No, not moi, you silly person … tut! I’m rarely right. Trust me on that. Examples?
Okay, for now just one—
‘They’ told us the world would run out of oil and come smashing to a grinding stop, with war breaking out all over the place as desperate societies clash over the oil they so desperately rely on. Got me drift yet, clever person?
I REFER OF COURSE
to ‘Peak Oil’ and the effects of that famous outrage.
Here, have a shot of a nice optimist (possibly wondering which impoverished country his Great Home Of Peace and Compassion can bomb the snot out of next). (Anyone who can’t fight back, I imagine …)
WE WERE TOLD
hounded, pounded, blasted 24/7 (and the rest, Argie—Ed) that we were doomed. Bugger, let me try to put it in the context of the time—
—for all eternity unless we stopped (yesterday, if not sooner) using oil. All the wells were running dry and Peak Oil has already peaked; so there! But even more worse, burning all the oil would cause Anthropogenic Global Al Goring to shift into ultra high gear (already snow in Europe was a mere fact of history and would never happen again).
SO, I ASK
where do these ‘news’ mongers get all this
rubbish fearsome stuff about ‘extra’ oil from, hey? Trying to catch ol’ Argie yet again, are they?
FOOL ME ONCE,
WELL DONE, you.
FOOL ME AGAIN …
BUT: A PREDICTION FROM YOUR FAVOURITE OL’ DAWG:
Folks will be lining up in the streets to sign petitions, and raising charities for funds for the poor starving oil sheiks; there will be calls made for extra taxes to be piled on US and other oil producers ‘lest their self-serving self-centred anti-social greed (oops) GREED submerges us all in oil.
Nasty icky stuff, should all be banned …
