The government have been aware of this problem for some considerable time.
The problem is that the moment the majority of the population come to realise that their fools paradise is doomed all hell breaks loose. The economic system will crash beyond recovery, western political systems will be shaken to their roots and there will be a considerable amount of disorder. I say GOOD! The longer it takes for the bulk of people to realise the problem the worse the eventual crash will be. Theres no point in lobbying parliament. I've tried it. Presenting them with piece after piece of scientific evidence, appealing to their humanity to allow us the resources and leadership to begin the building of a sustainable infrastructure, making quite clear the consequences of inaction and their response is an extension ofthe M6 Toll motorway and extra troops for Iraq.
They intend to resolve the problem by permitting and accelerating the dieback of the human race the euphemism they use is "Demand Reduction"
There is another way.
We must abandon capitalism if this scenario were to be equated with the Christian revelation then the beast would be Capitalism. (In fact in grass roots awareness raising this may be helpful in motivating people)
Every man woman and child in the world will have to organise themselves into small tight communities and introduce self sufficiency. Permaculture is one of the best models for this.
The mainstream media is controlled and useless. Appealing to the governments is useless so they must be rendered irrelevent.
You must get organised and as close to self sufficient immediately. Inform your family, your friends, your colleagues at work, any churches (They may well believe it better than most and already have a social infrastructure to get things moving) You must come armed with facts and links to reputable sources on the net that discuss the issue.
There is no more time for prevarication. Get self sufficient or die.
Anon cos its a tough subject
