Teotwawki

Dave Ploeg laments that he might not be around long enough to see the world run out of resources. I beg to differ Dave, you are the right man in the right place at the right time. According to the U. S. government predictions of oil production from 2004, we are at the top of the peak. Oil production in the US peaked in 1971, and discovery of new oil reserves worldwide peaked in 1962. Add to this rising sea surface temperatures, drought and flooding and the theories of a thousand fevered minds, and its TEOTWAWKI. I predict no shortage of news between now and the end of your visit.

I know what Dave means. "Western Civilization was going to hell, but too slowly to be interesting" was how Tom Robbins put it.
