Along this same line but on a wider spectrum, I heard the "Weekend"
summary of a couple of programs on Dobson last week. Dobson interviewed
Richard Swenson (?), who has a book, _Hurtling Toward Obvilion_. Swenson
has tracked various trends, such as the speed of money transfer, the
scale of weaponery, total population of the planet, information, etc.
since the 80's, and said we may see radical changes in society in the
near future. He doesn't put a date on the change, but implies that it
may be radical. I didn't hear him mention energy, but I expect he has
included the oil supply in his book.
