We probably are judging from this article --- long read and depressing: Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, and investment bankers in the world. These are rational, professional, conservative individuals who are absolutely terrified by a phenomenon known as global "Peak Oil." http://www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net/

The author debunks most of our cherished faith in alternate energy as a saviour -- also partially discusses the effect of the totally accepted economic theory of 'Jevon's paradox' formulated 150 years ago -- short précis: conserving energy whilst good for an individual tends to most often lead to increased total energy use in a society.
