Food for thought

‎1.3 trillion barrels of oil are left (roughly) in the earth.

We pump almost 60 million a day.

If this stays constant (it won't, it will most likely get worse) we are looking at MAYBE 15,500 days of oil left.

So...within about forty odd years it is likely you will see the permanent death of the oil industry.

Did you know about this? Are you prepared for it?

Oil prices will only climb higher, there will be a panic, and it will all fall apart. Even with the introduction of electric cars, tires, paints, plastics, gasoline, and many other products are created with oil.

And don't bother hording gasoline either. Don't be stupid, it goes bad in roughly 14 months, and then you won't have a means of travel.

Buy a fucking bike, move closer to family, and build your community.

I'm sorry I was only meaning that as a horrible joke. But you never know what could end up happening.

True. I live in a place where community is strong and so banding together in a crisis wouldn't be hard.

Sadly people always find more and more new oil, by drilling in more remote places. Also it is possible to turn plastic back into the oil it was made from (just very expensive... but if prices keep climbing it might become viable some day)

Nevertheless I use my bike a whole lot and public transport whenever I can.

That's the problem with fossil fuels... they are limited, and will run out.  Once the petroleum is gone, there will still be coal.  When the coal runs out (say in 200 years), we better have something renewable.  Our energy limit is what we get from the sun each day, plus the heat produced by radioactive decay within the Earth.  We must learn to live within that limit.
