Excuse the pessimism, but everything seems to be going to hell. There is precious little in the history of humanity to inspire confidence. Easiest thing to do; get used to the idea of premature death.

The OIL companies and ultimately the Powerful people behind the board of those companies will not let any viable power technology take off in the world cause they would looses billions of $$$.

Folks, oil isn't gonna run out just like that. If it starts to run low, the news will spread. You can't keep something secret like that for a long time with today's modern news media and so forth.
But personally, I think it is all way overblown. We'll still be using oil in 2065.
