Yes it is noble for everyone to do their part to try and reduce our need for oil, but even those who don't now, will when the market makes it cheaper to. That's what those who scream and yell about peak oil, and the green weenies in the environmental movement don't understand.

If and when the worlds supply of usable oil starts to disappear, the alternative energy technologies will become cheaper to use than fossil fuels. Thus the demand for alternative energy sources will increase dramatically, and companies world wide will rush to fill that demand. It's simple economics that supply is created by demand. So in time companies will spend the money on R & D for alternative energy on their own. The links above already show this starting. We don't need governments forcing companies to do it before the market demands it.

Nothing, I was being sarcastic as many people here consider the EU to be some part of NWO or whatever, at least somehow a conspiracy

Hydrogen burning engines were made by the Japanese. They are too costly to be distributed. They are working on one that will cost less.

U.S.A.

and

U.S.E.

Alberta sits on 300 Billion barrels of currently recoverable oil and an estimated 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000) or more barrels of oil that with improved technology could be recovered.

A few articles that explain what the Oil Sands, Tar Sands, or Heavey Oil is. What needs to be done to get at it better. Money is being spent to improve technology and better gain access to the estimated 6 Trillion Barrels of the stuff.

Hydrogen powered cars are an illusion. Where does the hydrogen come from? In any large numbers, fossil fuel like methane.

Transport is horrible---by far the most scientifically compelling carrier for hydrogen is carbon atoms in a liquid form. I.e. gasoline.

When the price of oil goes up, the price of alternates will ALSO go up, and perhaps substantially. Why? Because a large part of the current cost of goods is based on the current cost of oil and energy since it is used in so many processes. When oil is $70/bbl and gasoline $6/gallon there will be massive inflation in all the industrial goods and raw materials necessary to produce and extract alternate energy.

Yes, there will bea crossover point where the alternate is profitable, but it will be higher than most people think, and the road there will be very painful.

Alberta oil sands make #ty oil and it costs a large amount of energy input to get it out.

The main problem with mideast oil is what the people there do with the money they make from it.
