Oil industry propaganda cannot defy gravity much longer

This video explains how the US oil production increase is very short-term and will only make the long crash worse, and how the US federal government is of no help. However, when it comes to solutions, peak prosperity is fixated on the "cost of pensions" and has a blind spot for the cost of autosprawl subsidy.

What if the trillions being pumped into the obsolete autosprawl system were locally redirected to local farming and sharing schemes. Is this possible? Yes. Here is how to do it. Make the buses fare-free in your town. Gradually abolish the need for the private auto. People will move to town and give up their cars. Farmers can retake the suburbs.

Use the savings from abolishing car welfare to educate all children. Birthrate will drop.
