OK but what about biofuel? We can always cultivate plants and extract oils from them...
The heartbreaking necessity of lying about reality and the heartbreaking impossibility of lying about it.

On a huge scale, rebooting from square one after an apocalypse without benefit of intact industry? Not so easy I'd say... OTOH, who says humankind can't rebuild a semblance of civilization, produce a nice life for hundreds of thousands, isn't that enough? Like we NEED billions AND BILLIONS of people?
