Oil ban. Are we there yet?

So, can we stop using oil for once. Stop working at places too far from home and stop with this I need a cheap vehicle because it uses a lot of oil?

So when are we going to be forced to convert our cars to oil free?

New places are being drilled which are moving or killing all them damn fishes. This is very fishy.
I'm tired of look at the oil prices. I want my car to drive none stop without refueling with oil which can be let up and burn you to death. When can I change my engine to oil free engine? Heck where the hill is that Fifth Element/Blade Runner flying car which doesn't use oil. If I work that far, I deserve faster travel!

Where is that 300km/h+ Chinese/Japanese monorail in America? All the dam trains seems too slow to get to work making me wake up super early because I don't want to use my car and save money.

Talk about oil when can we have tire free cars? All does rubber tire polluting the world and wasting space in a dump yard. Tire also uses a form of oil which is lubricant.

Exactly what oil free materials are going to replace metal, plastic, rubber, and electronic parts to make this “oil free car”? What fuel is this flying or tireless car going to run on?
Do you understand the energy it takes to make something the size of a car fly?

And lastly the word fish is already plural, fishes is a current tense verb, as in “the man fishes in the pond”, not “the ocean is full of fishes”.

Hell, no.

Modern society relies on energy and the energy needed can't be created by non-carbon based fuels at this time. Go invent something that is cheaper than gas and oil and I will use it, but until then sthu.

100 years to go.

First they have to get petroleum out of plastic.

Then oil products out of batteries.

We will be done with oil when the oil companies can make more money with the alternative.

It is literally that simple.

Why does it always have to be all or bloody nothing.

How about some things will always be made with some oil products but we stop some of the 20 million barrels a day consumed by the US.

Every little piece of crapola has to be instantly polarized with a great chasm between.

Let's just reduce the need for oil a little at a time.

Electric cars are doing just that!

It is ok to make the cars.

Does not have to be all or nothing.

where do u think the energy comes from to produce those electric vehicles? where do u think the power comes from to charge those electric vehicles? as it is our world rely's on fossil fuels to create the energy needed even for so called green energy. those solar panels we all have take almost as much energy to produce as they will put out over their lifetime so they are reliant on an outside energy source to be sustainable atleast until they improve the efficiency of them by a massive amount. until someone comes up with a new energy source or improves on tech greatly we will be stuck using fossil fuels and even then we will still most likely be reliant on fossil fuels for a plethora of products like lubricants and plastics.

We already are.
Cars with higher fuel mileage.
Synthetic motor oil that last for 10k miles instead of 3k.
Air liners are extremely fuel efficient and getting better.

This stuff takes time.

Whale oil. Our forefathers harvested it.

We could supplant the entire Middle East supply.

And figure a way to make around 10,000 + other products we use on a daily basis without petroleum products.

You do realize that oil is used in just about everything right? Including the process used to make the device you are posting to the internet on.

Kinda hard to protest oil online when oil is necessary to post online.

Bioplastics already exist. In fact, a lot of petroleum products & byproducts already have alternative non-petroleum versions. The issue is usually cost, scale, and needing to refit or replace existing infrastructure. So the answer to the OP's question is "when we decide to allocate a lot more resources to the issue".

It's like asbestos. When it was widely used, it was found in hundreds of products. Some of those uses simply replaced previous materials while others were unique for the time. But once we stopped using asbestos on a large scale, scientists and engineers simply found alternatives for it.

So, can we stop using oil for once.


Yes,

I stop using oil when ever I use it, I start using it then I stop.




Stop working at places too far from home and stop with this I need a cheap vehicle because it uses a lot of oil?


Please,

pretty please,

find 1 example of a person buying a car because it uses a lot of oil.

That has to be one of the funniest things I have heard all day.

I will let you in on a little secret.

People buy cars for transport/business, then, enthusiasts may collect cars and race cars.

Never have I heard of a person wanting to by a car because it uses a lot of oil.

Which means close to eternity if they keep holding back the alternatives and finding new sources in the same places they thought were dry. Abiotic oil is the problem.

You have to thinking about what you are saying. All our roads, infrastructure, and jobs revolve around the consumption of oil. In 2017, it's just not possible to run society and have an economy without using oil.
