Wars will be a lot slower
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

Oil

The next big solar flare could end "civilization".We won't need oil then.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

We got some clues from an earlier period: When there was no more CHEAP oil. You may know that in early 1970s oil  was still around $3 a barrel. It mainly came from the Middle East. Then the Arab nations formed a cartel (OPEC) to force up the price of oil.  It rose fourfold, plunged the west into inflation, hitting over 29 percent. It vastly shifted wealth and power. However it also made exploring and extracting oil from more expensive sources economically viable at the high prices. For example Norway and the UK could exploit North Sea Oil and that became a big boost to their economies and to global supply. Of course it spurred building fuel efficient smaller cars and alternatives to oil powered central heating. The world survived.

By the time there is no oil,  I hope we will have many clever efficient ways of getting energy. If these include globally adoptable methods that do not depend on resources in the ground or the sea that belong to just a few countries, this will alter the power plays.
