Doomsday coming?

A friend at work pointed me to this site. The author is allowing people to download a copy of the book he's about to publish free of charge until the US elections (November 2) in an attempt to get people to understand the issue.

The issue is quite simply that the world is going to run out of energy in the next 20 odd years, and there is nothing we can do to stop it.

I'm about half way through it at the moment, and it's a scary read.

I think the most frightening thing about it is that he doesn't sound like a fanatic, and comes across as a well-informed, intelligent and rational man just presenting the facts. It's all basic, common sense applied to the oil crisis, and it terrifies me.

Go there and download the pdf of the book, and give it a read, and once you have read it tell me your opinion. I know I am easily swayed at times, so I wouldn't mind some other peoples opinions.

Edit: Well, I've finished the book. In the second half of the book he gets into a lot of doom and gloom scenario's, but it still all seems like a logical extrapolation of facts. It still scares me.

There is the Solar power option, the Wind power option & for vehicles... the Biodiesel option, all of which need to be harnessed *now*, not at "OMG! we're desperate" moment. Funnily enough Australia leads the way in all 3...
& they're all available *right now*, still a little more expensive than oil, but so much cheaper than when I first started looking into them 10 years ago.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
