Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

we're screwed

Have you seen this? Mark Morford of SFGate points to this article in his column today:

it's pretty scary. It also brings up an interesting point of view about the future- and in thinking about Hitchhikers and Star Wars and by association, Sci Fi in general, it's funny to think that the popular vision of the future is one dominated by increases in technology, perhaps to the point of making over the planet into one giant indusrial/mechanical city. But this guy is saying maybe the future is really going to be the opposite - the loss of all the 20th century technology we've created, a return to more basic living - and not because we want to, because we'll be forced to.

that's nothing. check out the book Crossing the Rubicon by michael c. ruppert. if you like a little conspiracy with your Peak Oil theory, he's the go to guy. i just started the book. not sure what i think of it yet. check out www.fromthewilderness.com.

i preordered kunsteler's book, The Long Emergency on amazon, too. i'll tell you what it's like.

i just started looking at all of this because my grandparents got a pamhplet about Peak Oil that had an argument bringing in the incasion of Iraq and the CIA's drug traffiking in a way that was so elegant and lucid i wanted to understand more.
