  •  A very small fraction are aware - Many out there (7+ / 0-)

    have a vested interest in denying that there is and will continue to be "An Oil Shortage"  They say things like:
    "There's enough oil out in Colorado right now to power
    the earth for the next 500 years, but Obama just won't let em drill."  They hear bullshit like this on right wing radio.
    Then, there are "the Rapture is at hand folks" who are so wrapped up in the next life that they worry not for this Earth.  It was created for them to have dominion over.  It doesn't matter how fucked up they leave it -
    Not their problem.

    Let's face it, this is a really depressing subject.
    Its hard to get people to focus on mass starvation,
    societal breakdown, and extinction.  They'd rather
    question Obama's birth certificate or pontificate about
    Paul Ryan's courageous plan to stab the majority of us in the gut.
    There seem to be so many more Me's than We's.
    What "We" desperately need is a lot more "We mentality-
    If we're going to survive and find solutions. .......

    United we stand - Divided we are all truly screwed. Keep them blaming one another - they'll never notice what's really going on.
