is fun. Ross Scott generally seems like a fun individual who has lots of interesting down-to-earth commentary about a lot of things. I especially like his Game Dungeon reviews, but I'm not particularly crazy about his most popular work, Freeman's Mind
. He's currently making THE MOVIE and has asked for help with some aspects of it across his various Accursed Farms forums and some of his videos, although I don't remember specifics (mostly animators and graphics designers I guess).His commentary
on the episode:

You should by no means assume anything said in Civil Protection or Freeman's Mind necessarily reflects my own beliefs, however this is one case where they do. The theme of this episode is how we're in big trouble once we run out of oil. The research I did on the topic suggest that things are going to get pretty ugly in the future. One expert interviewed by National Geographic says that the world oil supply is plateauing right now and we have about 6-8 years before it will start to decline and this guy was right on the money about when the U.S. was going to be be unable to rely on domestic oil back in the 70's. Besides what Mike mentions in the video (I won't spoil it), I think our only realistic solution is figuring out how to get cellulosic ethanol production to work on a mass scale (this isn't the same kind made from corn, sugar, and other crops). I'm not really a miltia type, but the more I read about the situation, the more it makes me want to live in a cabin out in the woods with guns and a bunch of canned goods. That would be a good place to be if society starts to fall apart. It'll be at least 10-20 years before things really get bad though.
