When the oil runs out...

This is an issue that I guess that I feel strongly about.
I cannot understand why people across the world arent
doing more research on alternate fuels such as
Ethanol, Hydrogen and of course many others.
Take Ethanol for example, it can be made from pretty
much any crop or tree today. Instead of bringing up
more oil from the earths oil reserves which is later
converted into carbondioxide and then polluting our
atmosphere we can grow crops, taking up the
carbondioxide that is already in the atmosphere
and thereby not producing any.

Isnt that a perfect solution for the worlds coming
energy crisis?

A fuel that does not produce any carbondioxide and very
little other chemical substances? Sure, alot more research
is needed but what I fail to understand is why people arent
more interested in this, but I guess the answer is always the
same namely: Greed, Power and Money...

I don't believe enough crops can be grown to keep these monsterous economy's running.

although it is certainly part of the solution.

There will never be an alternative energy source, because oil is what controls goverments. Just as once lumber money controllled the goverment and coal controlled the goverment. Lets face the rich run the world,and as long as oil makes them rich we will never have alternative energy sources. The technology is already there but it is kept a better secret than ufos. The world needs a change and it is to get corprate interest out of goverment then we wouldnt have bush going to war for the intrest of oil.

Oil isn't going to run out in our lifetimes.

Here's a thread in this same forum.
Russia -Deep well drilling and unlimited oil production

It might get more expensive, but it won't run out.

Actually more and more leading scientists are saying
that the oil could run out in about 50 years time.
If were not prepared when the oil prices start to climb
entire nations will be without means of transportations
and large powerplants wont be able to buy oil to burn
for energy, in short, its going to be a dissaster.

As I typed the above the word ¨Olduvai Cliff¨ appeared
among my thoughts, anybody got any details on what it is?

Peak oil is a load of raw effluent..... so don't swallow it!

Ignorance. The alternatives are considerably weak, expensive and ineffecient; of which offer very little incentive to use on industrial and commercial scales.

Cutting down trees, depleting top soil and creating hazardous concentrations of fertilizers near ground and surface water drinking areas are not a solution to any illfated notion of a carbon dioxide problem.

Electrical generation is induced by firing coal to heat water and run through turbines and generators, not burning oil. In poorer countries such as Iran and Mexico this may be the case, but in the developed world coal fire and nuclear are the primary components of meeting electrical demand.

If only I had a nickel for everytime I picked up a book at the library that cited the end of oil 50 years ago, I would be a rich man. Fact is, you have to drill to find the oil. Leading scientist and more cannot predict, no matter how much they say, the end of oil production. These people are desperate, screaming for attention and want money but are too lazy to find a better means of obtaining money.

What would you suggest we use that does not produce carbon dioxide (whatever it is supposed to mean) or any chemicals (have no idea what you are getting at)?

Cantarell production slumps

"The oil industry was stunned. Cantarell, which currently produces one of every 50 barrels of oil on the world market, is fading so fast analysts believe Mexico may become an oil importer in eight years. That would batter Mexico's economy, which depends on oil exports to fund 40% of its government spending."
Full Text

For an economy that relies on; "oil exports to fund 40% of its government spending", lower production from Pemex/Cantarell not only has implications for future U.S. pump all likelyhood it will also affect U.S. immigration numbers. Is it Amero time yet?

Peace &
Good Fortune
