World Without Oil

OIL_5642.JPGWe saw a promo last night for this upcoming special on the National Geographic channel. Here is the a description of the program:

What would our world look like if we ran out of oil? The lifeblood of our high-tech, highly mobile world won’t last forever. Watch one scenario of what happens when one day oil does run out. How might our world change and how would we adapt? Aftermath follows the chaotic days and months after this catastrophic event through dramatic re-creations and CGI animation. Find out how we might cope as food disappears, electrical power fails and winter turns the big cities into isolated pockets of concrete and glass. What will be more important to our survival — the technology to develop new sources of energy, or a change to a more sustainable way of life?

Video “Are You Prepared for the End of Oil?” – Imagine a world in which all of the oil has completely disappeared. Or let us do it for you.
