As predicted

Weird, how things are coming together to play out exactly as so many peak oil activists have predicted. The funny thing is that one year ago reality today would have been (and was) widely ridiculed. The news today (Wed 11th) is especially unsettling.
  • Oil soars to near $140 a gallon
  • Food prices soar 50% - 100% for some items
  • Protests
  • Strikes
  • Blockades
  • Shortages
  • Riots

First in the developing (poor) parts of the world, then in parts of the world where unions have power or people are suffering more (parts of Europe, UK, Spain).... eventually coming to a theater near you.

For me, I plan to go buy a clothesline today and some buckets for storing food. :)
