Oh thanks spike!  That is great!

And it so funny to see the naive, twisted, mistaken 
arguments/assumptions like cutting the people by 1/3 will triple the 
amount of oil each one of us has.  I'd believe that it was more accurate 
that cutting humanity, at all, would decrease the amount of oil the rest 
of us have.  In other words, the more people there are, the more you can 
mass produce oil wells and the more people there are to search for them, 
the more you can discover things like fraking, and the more it makes 
energy cheaper for everyone.  Kill any one of us, and it makes oil that 
much more expensive, making ever more of our loved ones fail to make it 
to eternal heaven, thereby suffering eternal damnation.  Now that is by 
far more significant than any other "it's the end of the world", rant, 
if you ask me.

But, I could be wrong, so if any kind of true consensus could be really 
shown to exist [hint: I don't believe the global warmers claiming there 
is a 'consensus' that global warming is a problem - I want real 
quantitative numbers about concise things, otherwise it's all just fear 
mongering, and no better than this one girl I met last month that claims 
the Gods drew pictures of themselves on Mars (which you can see in Nasa 
photographs, at least if you really squint, and have here help you see 
them), and if we don't listen to her and them, they're going to destroy 
us all!!  dun dun dun..!!  And all the other people that have been 
predicting the end of the world for centuries.
