Fossil, your facts seem a little scewed. according to the World Health Organization
Organisation, Department of Measurement and Health Information, the approximate worldwide death rate due to all forms of malnutrition was 2,132 per 100,000 (2002 data). That makes your 24/7 starvation figure grossly overstated.
Furthermore, your blaming the petroleum industry for global starvation has no basis in fact or true relevancy to this issue. Without the rapid response capabilty allowed by petroleum fueled planes, trains, and ships and trucks, global mortality rates due to most all causes would be nearly as high as they were 100 years ago.

The chief concern here is how the governments will react in their awkward attempts to create an orderly transition to life with higher petroleum prices. Taxes in the US are over 3 times the net profit rates the retailer sees.
