All in all, the world is not going to come to an end. It is however coming to a changing point and being ready for it is a matter of calm and resolution, not chicken little ranting. I sincerely believe that the issues that were identified in the 1960's and 1970's (end of oil and environmental degradation) are coming to fruit. But it is a long toss between:
- topping the oil peak and moving past the 50% degradation mark and
- the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.
