    I was surprised I couldn't find any threads on this topic. The future is looking very bleak. Between oil, water, the bubble economy and America's out of control energy use, the world is looking to get pretty bad in the coming years. JWs (and other religious groups no doubt) will see this as the great tribulation. Unfortunately as an athiest I don't see any way out. Any thoughts?

    Just another doom's day wet dream... oil will not be the end of civilization... Dumping zillions of tons of toxic waste in the oceans every year... Well now you at least have my attention! I have to agree with proplog on this one though!
