Posted this but it got lost in the ethos............(probably forgot to hit "post"..)
People fight wars over oil.
Countries rely on oil for there economic viability.
With the world preoccupied with global catastrophies, like asteroid strikes, terrorist nuclear attacks and new strains of viralent plagues, it
suddenly occured to me that a single event could be just as devasting to the world as we know it.
imagine if somewhere/somehow a form of Algie or Bacteria could be created/discovered/fell off the back of a meteorite...... that would render oil
useless as a fossil fuel.
Where would that leave the Middle East and all levels of global transportation?
Having shares in a Wind Farm wouldn't be that stupid afrter all then would it.
Keep your eyes peeled for a disgruntled Petro-Chemical engineer with a PhD in Microbiology...
