are you kidding me?! have you been living under a rock or something? Pay Attention!
while i voted for mccain i fully support obama and really do wish him well/think he'll do just fine, but if you think he is the magic answer to this problem you're kidding yourself man.
oh, and yeah our production peaked already and our discovery rate peaked in like the 30s or something; we might be in trouble. ethanol is awful energy in vs. energy out so that won't solve the problem. hopefully we have some good people working on this, and fast.
i said "think he'll do just fine"
bush has nothing to do with it...the energy crisis just simply isn't going to fix itself because obama is in the white house. it's going to take years of research and a totally new method of harnessing energy sustainably. yeah, he may help to fund it or whatever, but if he had all the answers we wouldn't have the problem, man.
that i'll give ya
sorry for the post whore....that last post was directed at jholer2...
and ya bobGnar that's sort of what i was saying before...it's not really his problem to solve, just sort of fund . he's not a geologist. hopefully someone figures it out, though.
but hey, i'm livin large now, gas is like 2.10 just down the street. i should probably go fill up.
you are 100% correct.
The U.S. Government is making it seem like there is plenty of oil left, but really we need to start thinking about alternative fuel sources NOW. In a book i'm reading called "The End Of Oil" The author makes it clear that the peak of oil production hit in 2005, and its now a downward curve. Saudi Arabia does not have all that much oil left.
You know there can't be much oil left when:
The world uses 1000 barrels of oil A SECOND
The united States spends 640 billion dollars annually on IMPORTED oil.
Saudi Arabia is pumping its wells with water.
yea you are right!
by any chance are you an economics major? you think like an economist
that is your opinion though. If you do a little research, you will see that even geologists and oil industry anylists are saying the peak is over. it is now on the down curve, sure new technology may help a little bit, but it bigger drills don't do all that much.
And for biodisel. You must take into account that biodiesel is made via non renewable resources. Therefore it is somewhat innefecient. Oil is used in the process of making biodiesel.
