The great powers will fight over Pipelineistan until the oil and gas run out, or we stop wasting energy and control growth. Right now, the U.S. has the largest military commitment and is losing badly. You know what this means, more nuclear blackmail for nations, and endless terrorizing of the local people. Pipelines and related oil and gas infrastructure are particularly hard to secure, consequently total control of the population is necessary.
So, what to do? Join your local transit advocacy group. Start free public transit in your town. It is being done in cities and towns of all sizes now. Don't waste your time petitioning national governments, they are owned by the fossil-fuel industry. When free transit spreads from town to town, city to city, we can gradually reduce the wasteful autosprawl system.
