When Dick Cheney can start a war in Iraq to expand his own multi-billion dollar oil enterprise, using the government and its army to do so, I'd say government has become and extention of corporate policy.

For economics, I'm talking about the limits to growth and peak everything.

For catastrophic environmental degradation, I'm talking about climate change.

The worry is not about running out of oil, it's not being able to produce more year on year which is a requirement for economic growth, and oil is not the only concern. We have a system based on every increasing use of resources, if we don't increase usage and achieve growth economies fail, this even includes growth of the human population.

It's clearly an unsustainable system, but to change it requires economies as they currently exist must fail with all the obvious consequences.

This video ignores the reality of how harmful and uneconomical replacing human labour with fossil fuels are on the wider system when you factor in externalities such as long term environmental consequences and resource depletion among other things.
