Has anyone thought about this very much? I was on a web site the other day, run by some oil affiliated think tank, that says that 2005 is going to be the peak production year for oil.
After 2005, the oil companies will never again produce oil in the quantities they currently are producing.
One would think that society at large would be worrying about this, and planning for the future. What will "poor people" do when they can't get cheap gas to get to work? Just recently there was a "state of emergency" in California because gas was over $3.00 a gallon. I think that price is going to be looked back on with fond memories.
Does anyone have any thoughts formulated, or plans for the future in regards to this? Should we plan on running for the mountains because "it's the end of the world as we know it?". I don't feel fine...
