That's just a lot of words vroom, I have friends in the energy industry who recon there is heaps of oil untapped, it's to keep the oil prices high
But that's only what I am told, i believe them over you, no offence. It's just I know them, don't know you
Water, that's a bit tricky, though desalination tech is getting better

Exactly. A lot of people see two decades away as something almost unfathomable. Might as well be a singularity to them. Tipping points for the climate are on the horizon as well as calorie deficits. 20 years might as well be tomorrow because it's coming fast.
...but yeah, forget about it. Don't touch my taxes. Earth will be fine. That's the popular refrain.

The ice caps melt in summer
How much do they melt in summer?
have we reached peak oil?
The ice caps all melt 23.8% exactly, no more no less, heat, winds and water temperatures don't effect the ice, it's all plastic now
Yes, not peak oil. Have you seen the oil production statistics lately? When did they top out?
Not peak oil yet, Really Phage, how do you know how much oil we have used, how do you know how much is in the ground?
