Industrial civilization which began 150 years ago is entering a
decisive phase as the resources run scarce to satisfy its ravenous
appetite. Human society, living an industrialized life, has used up
resources which took nature millions of years to create. How long
our earth and environment can support this reckless living is a big
question now.

Human beings constitute a very insignificant portion of the cosmos
and acting up like masters of the universe is an illusion. Thinking
that we can fight nature is a hallucination. Living a life in harmony
with nature and its environment is the only way a civilization can
survive long enough to pass the test of time.

On many fronts, the crumbling of this colossal industrial setup is
becoming apparent. One on the forefront is peak oil or upcoming oil
shortage. Oil is the lifeblood of modern civilization. Choke off the
oil and it quickly seizes.

With no viable alternatives in sight, human society will be facing
a great crisis of unprecedented scale. All the previous calamities were
local in nature. Oil crisis would be a global disaster because the
world today shares a common fate, thanks to interdependence and
interconnectivity. Earlier we suffered in isolation and now we go
down, all together. There are food riots in Africa when America decides
to produce bio-fuels. When there are skirmishes in Nigeria, a
government is toppled on other side of the globe.

The solution lies in aligning ourselves with nature rather than
trying to put up a brave front. So called victory over nature is just a
garbed defeat. We have to recognize the problem as overconsumption
and not overpopulation.

This book is an awakening call, a call to act before time runs out,
before it’s too late. The saying “man is the architect of his own fortune”
was never more relevant.

President Bush aptly admits and endorses this view when he
describes the present times for America and rest of the world as "very
difficult times, very difficult."

The headlines have begun to blare like “Shell chief fears oil shortage
in seven years”, “Spectre of food rationing hits US amidst global food
crisis ”, “Futures Market Traders Bet On $200/Barrel Oil In 2008”,
“Oilcos plan to ration fuel supply”, “British truckers protest rising
fuel prices”, “ Oil shock: Airlines cut flights, expansion plans”, etc.
Stopgap solutions can not help as the nature and environment
can not be cheated. In an attempt to do so, we end up cheating our
ownselves. We have to get to the root of the problem which is an
unsustainable lifestyle. Present day lifestyle is founded on total
disregard for the nature and its Creator.
