I'll keep this short and let the film I linked do the talking. Only thing I will say is America only has 5% of the world's population, yet we consume 25% of the world's resources.
BTW Anyone interested in starting a homstead, preferably with good surf, PM me. Serious replys only please.

I thank all who contribute with open mindedness. 100 million probably will die when this system collapses. If alot of people have'nt noticed, water is becoming scarce. Why do you think companies like Coca Cola and Nestle are buying up most of the world's water rights. Residents of Maine have undergone water restrictions, but the Poland Spring's (Nestle) trucks leave on or ahead of schedule during those times. People have got to wake up. Many are too busy cheering on their favorite team while consuming corporate goods. 5% of the population-25% of the resources. It's that simple. If your not willing to, then how about this If you want to see gas go down in price: stop eating beef. It takes 25 gallons of gasoline and 2500 gallons of water for the production of 1 pound of beef. Your tax dollars pay for that through subsidies from the government. Also the increase of large scale farming requires tons of pesticides and herbacides. Resulting in soil degredation, polluted enviornments, and an increases of cancer. It is not sustainable. Where the 80% percent now live, used to be farm land. Here in Jersey where I live, we had farms right here at the beach. Now its filled with yuppies who commute to Manhattan every day. The whole monetary system and the life that revolves around it is why there are wars, famines, and polution. It will not last forever. And if any of you have children and care about their future you should take note.
You want to go back to living in nature, start sleeping in the woods near your house, and tell me how much better it is than sleeping under a roof.

I used to live in Colorado and lived in a house that had solar panels powering the hot water heater. In a city that is a mile high and gets 300+ days of sunshine per year a back up oil water heater was still needed. Alternative fuels such as wind and solar are great in theory, but today the technology isn't there for these energy sources to be sustainable and replace oil. There is a lot of oil on US soil, we shouldn't abanden green energy but for the sake of our economy go after the resources that we have. The more oil we produce here the less money we put in the pockets of angry jihadists that want to kill us
