51. Dependence on only ONE fuel source, lack of clean water and cropland
will get us in the end..if we do not move toward mass, outer-regional transit and several alternative fuel sources, it will (already is) bite us in the ass and eventually lay us out flat, stone cold.

Clean water - we all have to have it, it is already being fought over in this country now. Add on to that the alarming disappearance of farmland for food, and you have a disaster looming.

Our undoing won't be due to the actions or business of other nations, but in ignoring our own critical issues right here.
