"A Crude Awakening"

I just finished watching another documentary available online from Netflix. This one dealt with the concept of peak oil. It was very much a doom-and-gloom type of movie. It really got me thinking where this country and the world will be in 20-30 years in terms of energy. One would think that a movie like this would have a hidden agenda of promoting solar or wind power, but it basically said that even with wind and solar, we're still screwed. They ignored coal, so I think they're missing a big piece of the puzzle. It was pretty compelling, however, to realize that SOMETHING will have to be done in the very near future to prevent a complete meltdown of the world economy. The one thought that popped into my head as the movie concluded was that there was one very "simple" solution to the whole problem. That would be an epidemic which would wipe out about 99% of the human population. That would still leave 60,000,000 humans around. There would hopefully be plenty of energy then.
