Group Description


Our group archives contain 76K+ messages chronicling our 16 year conversation about the impact of a peak in world oil production upon technological civilization. With the advent of fracking, the concerns discussed in this group over this time period have been postponed, but not averted.

How this future plays out remains to be seen, but resource scarcities could bring economic dislocations, food shortages, fighting over resources, and (literally) billions of human deaths.

Got a local food, energy, & economic system?
