452k but worth the download to see something so positive and optimistic (Peak Oil, peak Economy)
262k and not so optimistic...but sobering.

"I don’t like machines,
which are neither mortal nor immortal,
though I am constrained to use them
(Thus the age perfects its clench.)
Some day they will be gone,
and that will be a glad and a holy day.
I mean the dire machines that run
by burning the world’s body and it’s breath.
When I see an airplane fuming
through the once-pure sky
or a vehicle of the outer space
with its little inner space
imitating a star at night,
I say, ‘Get out of there!’
as I would speak to a fox
or a thief in the henhouse.
When I hear the stock market has fallen,
I say, ‘Long live gravity!
Long live stupidity, error, and greed
in the palaces of fantasy capitalism!’ " --Wendell Berry

....But there is no glory in the threat of climate change. The story it 
tells us is of yeast in a barrel, feeding and farting until they are 
poisoned by their own waste. It is too squalid an ending for our 
anthropocentric conceit to accept." -- George Monbiot
