But what about...



Its all bad.

It takes oil to drill for oil. And as the stuff gets harder to pump out, its gonna cost even more money and oil to suck it out of the ground and refine it. At some point, it'll cost more oil to pull it out than they'll be getting back. That's the scary part. So we'll never run OUT of oil -- it'll just become too expensive to try and get it out.

Tellin' it like it is, hombres!

I like how you zoomed in closer to Robert and made him half-smiling for this kicker...

Right on, Mike! Someone should be making a book about life after peak oil . . . hmmm.

Anyway, I have three words for you pal: distributed power networks - way of the future, trust me.

nuclear power!

or maybe we should just start breeding hampsters like crazy and hook em all up with running wheels to generators.

these couple of illustrations are pretty cool though... it be cool to see this more often... kind of an "illustrated response" to your user comments.

We're seeing an unprecendented drive to fund, research and develop renewable energy sources. Before the peak oil scare, we just never had an incentive to be innovative. Necessity is the mother of invention. We'll find a way.

Iceland has it all figured out. They are (slowly) making the shift over to a hydrogen economy. They are using their vast geothermal resources to generate hydrogen to generate hydrogen-fueled technology. Now if the rest of the world would do the same, it might be easier for them.
