Jack... your point is well taken. However, it doesn't matter what "is
". What matters is what is perceived
. If people think
there's a shortage and react accordingly there is a shortage. My point is simply that there are viable alternatives that have not been responsibly
developed. Sure, maybe bio-diesel fuels (like the soy bean oil car) can't completely replace oil but it should be evident that it could potentially
oil to completely change the political dyanamic associated with the oil trade. Here are some facts:
And what about companies like BlackLight Power? Shouldn't we be forcing these kinds of developments to the forefront to either vet them as potential
solutions or discard them as distractions? We put important, promising drugs on the fast track why not energy technologies?
The oil economy evolved from oil that was inexpensive, readily available and easy to get --- relatively speaking of course. Well that was then. Now
it isn't inexpensive and the cost will continue to rise, it's becoming less available, more difficult to extract and interwoven with world politics
that are quite unlikely to improve for a very, very long time.
We need multiple alternatives and we need them quickly.
