Okay I just finished reading one of the websites. Sorry, this may be a legit concern, but this guy is fucking ridiculous. There is so much bullshit propaganda and fear tactics. I laughe d out loud at this paragraph.
By 2010, predicts Leggett, democracy will be on the run. . . . economic hardship will bring out the worst in people. Fascists will rise, feeding on the anger of the newly poor and whipping up support. These new rulers will find the tools of repression -- emergency laws, prison camps, a relaxed attitude toward torture -- already in place, courtesy of the war on terror. And if that scenario isn't nightmarish enough, Leggett predicts that "Big Oversight Number One" -- climate change -- will be simultaneously making its presence felt "with a vengeance." On the heels of their rapid financial ruin, people "will now watch aghast as their food and water supplies dwindle in the face of a climate seemingly going awry." Prolonged droughts will spread, decimating harvests
OH MY GOD. It's GLOBAL WARMING, RUN!!!! Haha he almost makes it sound like Mr. Peak Oil and Dr. Global Warming are sitting hidden in their secret lair, waiting for the time to strike. And when Mr. Peak Oil emerges to finally unleash his master plan of global domination, his sidekick Dr. Global Warming will be right next to him, faithfully helping bring civilization to an end. Give me a fucking break.
If you're sick of neo-conservative bullshit propaganda, there's a little bit of the other spectrum to keep a balanced diet. Enjoy!
