Did anyone else watch Prophets of Doom last night on the History Channel? I thought it was well done. Theybroke it into categories with an expert per category. One guy each on economic collapse, water depletion, peak oil, nuclear bomb proliferation and artificial intelligence gone amuck. Kunstler did an excellent job on peak oil. I sent him an email telling him I like the show and that I thought the artificial intelligence guy was weird.
His response was that the original name of the show was The Futurists, but the History Channel changed it to Prophets of Doom to boost ratings. He also said the AI guy was nutty and a creep. He described the room they were in as Hannibal Lecter’s Family Room.
Avalon thought I would have fit in well. She liked Generation Zero better.
I’m not sure when it will be on again, but here is a link to a youtube of most of it.
