This book lays out scenarios of the future that I wish everyone considered. I think it is a widely accepted fact that there is a finite amount of oil on the Earth, and we should anticipate and prepare for a point where this supply fails to meet the demand. This book explores this issue of oil depletion, and tries to paint what a future without abundant oil might look like. Along the way you might pick up a few ideas about what you can do to prepare for such a future.

I don't understand why people still cling to Julian Simon as a refutation of limits. We live in a real and finite world. I was deeply affected by Kunstler's analysis of what will NOT be able to replace oil. I hear people talking blithely about hydrogen fuel cells. Used to feel like it might be a solution but no more.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Several people have objected to this book because it's pessimistic and dark. I would use the words "realistic" and "plausible." Just because we can't imagine the consequences of less to no oil doesn't mean that it can't happen.
