Life Without Oil

From The Automatic Earth

  1. The eejits campaigning against oil weren’t housewives in the fifties in a cold and rainy climate. Before washing machines and spin dryers. Before central heating. Before man-made plasticised fabrics – light, easy care, no need to iron, dry easily. Instead linen, wool, cotton – heavy, hard to wash, even harder to dry.

    If the combined eco-nuts have their way in future what will we do for clothes? With man-made fabrics gone, sheep and cattle gone providing wool and leather, and farmland gone, providing cotton?
