Submission + - Energy and Water Shortages May Cause a World War (

iONiUM writes: "Maj. John Sheahan, a Major in the Canadian Army, released a draft version of the report, Army 2040: First Look. In this report, he claims "Global reserves of crude oil could become problematic by 2025. This implies that ... critical energy shortages will develop in the time frame of (and perhaps prior to) 2025." He is, of course, referring to peak oil. Will there really be another world war caused by the end of the oil era, along with water shortages?"
