Bed: "Wrapped in Tinfoil" by "Digital Droo" off of "Active Lancer Original Soundtrack"

Intro

In 2000, Daniel Quinn raised a question without answers.

To quote, he said:

"If we continue ... to consume the world until there's no more to consume, then there's going to come a day, sure as Hell, when our children, or their children or their children' children are going to look back on us, on you and me, and say to themselves, 'My God, what kind of monster's were these people?'"

But to demonize us is too easy and not entirely accurate.

A fairer question might have been "My god, how ignorant were these people?"

A more salient questions might be "My god, how unthinking were these people?"

Bed "Machinery" by "Might Could"

There are still no prerecorded promos so I'm going to fake one right now.

How about if I tell you about "Dan and Dave on Sports in the Morning"

"Looking for quality sports talk?

Then look no further than Dan Drutz, our own assistant director of athletics, and David Freeman.

They’re here to give you all the latest news and discussion in both college and professional sports.

If you’re a sports fanatic, you won’t want to miss a second of what these two guys have to say.

So be sure to catch “Dan and Dave on Sports in the Morning.”

Every Tuesday from 11 to 12 noon. Only on WSPC: The Sound of Saint Peter’s College.

I just caught their show here in the studio and its "pretty darn good!".

Bed "Red on white" by "Michael Ulery"

Thesis:

We're looking at the Fifth chapter of "The Party's OVER, Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies" by "Richard Heinberg" ISBN: 0-86571-482-7.

This chapter, entitled "A Banquet Of Consequences", delves into everything that will happen.

Its not that might happen. Its WILL happen. How we cope is up to us. If we can make a silk purse out of this sow's ear, then we can have a soft landing, one we will be able to walk away from.

It could also be that we're too stupid, stubborn and unrealistic to mitigate the end of the oil era and Mad Max will have been a prophetic vision.

Bed: "Wrapped in Tinfoil" by "Digital Droo" off of "Active Lancer Original Soundtrack"

Synthesis:

This fifth chapter, entitled "A Banquet of Consequences", explores the pros and cons of a whole lot of things. (Okay, I'm more optimistic than the author, I see some things as pros that he sees as cons.)

Basically he IS right in thinking that this affects every single human being on this planet, and that this will cause a great deal of change to the individuals, the social groups, the cities, and the city states (which I believe are the only way to organize people, because we have had over a century and a half, almost as long as we've had oil, [coincidence, I don't think so!] of wars, genocidal conflicts and simmering hatred to show us the failure of attempting to aggregate human beings into larger groups.)

This chapters covers:

* The Economy: Physical and Financial

* Transportation

* Food and Agriculture

* Heating and Cooling

* The Environment

* Public Health

* Information Storage, Processing and Transmission (I put more faith in the internet's ability to transcend birder's that he does,)

* National Politics and Social Movements

*The Geopolitics of Energy-Resource Competition

** The Middle East

** The Caspian Sea

** South America

** China

** Britain

** The Balkans

** Regional Rivalries and long-term strategy

ending off the sections with something subtitled

* Taking It All In

In a side bar at the end of the chapter called "When, exactly does the party end?" he get into the six things that he believes would herald the end of the end.

He IS right in thinking that we're all going to die.

Yeah, we're all going to die...

Guess what? We're all going to die regardless...

Guess what else? Our way of life is also going to die, as surely as the oil is running out.

Some of the cities we've built are dying right now perched as they are on the edge of some precipice, vulnerable to any natural disaster.

We're going to have to change our attitude towards child rearing from an individual's efforts to a tribal responsibility.

Outro

Go and get the book "The Party's OVER, Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies" by "Richard Heinberg" ISBN: 0-86571-482-7.

You can even go and re-bury your head in the sand afterward.

But you should know what's going to happen and let it guide you and your decisions.
