On numerous fronts, humanity is staring into the abyss, primarily due to our energy practices. The USA's and may be seen by future historians, if there are any, as the , as humanity fights over Earth's last remaining high-EROI energy resources. One of Einstein’s was, “I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” Maybe some of us survive that holocaust and the . Maybe we will avoid fighting over hydrocarbons, but the oceans will rise as climate changes more dramatically and billions are displaced. That will trigger global famine and a different kind of World War III, as nations fight over food (and maybe water), not oil. can drive people to drink and worse. Humanity stands on the chasm’s edge today, and hardly any people know or care, as their immediate self-interest marks the limit of their awareness.
