There's always been good business predicting the end of the world.

Needless to say, every end of the World predictions through out history have been wrong.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

I think we are close to the end of civilization as we now know it. With exponential population growth, global warming, threats of nuclear war, it can't go on like this forever, can it? One day something's got to give. The human race will have to re-adjust itself to a new environment. A new political and social environment.

I'd give it another hundred years.

Simply the end of cheap oil means that our societies will have to change profoundly, and not in a comfortable way. It is not the end of mankind, but all of our societies will change massively, most of all the advanced ones.
For peasants in third world countries, the change will not be so dramatic.
