The end of oil

Paul Roberts, in his new book The End of Oil, discussed by Salon, argues that Americans will continue driving our big SUVs and guzzling oil until a major oil shortage or some global warming catastrophe.
Just such a global-warming disaster is contemplated by next Friday's blockbuster movie The Day After Tomorrow, a movie which millions of Americans will drive to theaters in SUV's to watch. Poor New Yorkers, their city frozen over in a new ice age, when most of them don't even own cars.
