"Peak Oilers" do not offer any hope in alternative energy sources,for as Michael Ruppert claims in "From the Wilderness":
"there is no effective replacement for what hydrocarbon energy provides today."
Instead they paint bleak doomsday scenarios of the future like, when Colin Campbell writes that the consequences of oil depletion will be:
"war, starvation, economic recession, possibly even the extinction of homo sapiens."
The implication of this is, that if we, the West, want to survive, we need to secure the Middle Eastern oil-reserves for ourselves, otherwise the Chinese or the Indians will get them.
It´s either us or they who will starve.
But once again we have fallen for a "Big Lie".
