Is every country in an energy and oil crisis now?

-- Is whole world officially in an oil and energy and water crisis? (, December 11, 2000


I believe what we are seeing are trends in this direction. California is an extremely populated state - the energy demands there are regularly taxing the limits of the system. We are seeing severe drought in multiple places around the world. I live in Florida and many lakes here have simply disappeared. Israel has been negotiating with Turkey to buy drinking water because reserves are so dangerously low. Israel is projecting to be out of potable water as early as summer of 2001. It's not this bad everywhere, but certainly seems to be trending that direction.
