Amusing Nonsense on YouTube.
Have a look at this piece of homemade video nonsense, it is a very entertaining insight into the minds of some more extreme peak oil deniers. You see, peak oil and climate change are actually a Zionist conspiracy to curtail our freedoms and introduce new taxes. Aha. Now I see. I particularly like the bit that challenges the peak oil argument by saying that there is basically loads of the stuff left, and that “just one reserve in Alaska is large enough to fuel the entire US economy for over 100 years at the present rates of growth”. Excuse me? Come again? And there was me thinking that all of the oil in Alaska would last the US only 3 months… Climate change is all caused by sunspots too apparently. If you are looking for indicators that we are nearing or at the peak, take the rumours, as reported by David Strahan last week, that Shell and BP are considering merging, the fact that even William Rees Mogg is now writing insightfully about it and that a film like this which tries to rubbish it can’t come up with anything better than this!
