    Alright alright, I forgot about those. :p
    Although you could always use biofuels for the delivery, if we get there...

    This is true, but I don't think the public would see it that way, unfortunately. Then again, they baww at anything big that happens so fuck them.

    Peh.

    I have strong reason to believe that production of biofuel is not oil independent.
    Then they could easily starve to death. It's not a matter of whether oil will start depleting soon or not. It might. That is enough reason to act.

    Letting the problem deal with itself means you end up one of the people dead.

    That only makes you look stupid, i'm not sure how acting stupid makes others feel better.

    You raise quite a few valid points Hakeem, and, coincidentally, the community i live in has also begun to raise awareness on similar issues. We live in what could be considered a "rural" environment, we're surrounded by farmland (my family actually produces all of our own Corn, Peas, Potatoes, Carrots, Apples, Pears, Cherries and all kinds of things), and we've begun to push for keeping that farmland from being developed, so that we'll be able to support the community.

    With current biofuel technology gasoline is greener than E85.

    That's good to hear. But you gotta account for a fuel shortage. Do you use a tractor for the crops that need tending? Is your fertilizer oil based? Where's your power coming from? Around here we get a lot of it from hydroelectric, so we should be able to find a way to keep at least electricity running without oil for a bit.
    To an extent, but I am being completely honest when I say that I might not have food in one year's time. My food comes from a store, who gets it from so many places I wouldn't know where to move to. I wont be able to drive to the store to get it, and they wont even have food because nobody can drive there to give it to them. A shortage doesn't mean we all have to be sparing with our oil, a shortage means we don't have oil to use sparingly. The time to use it sparingly is now. Or, more accurately, the time to use it sparingly was years ago.

    I could be wrong -- and I really hope I am -- but if I'm right, the implications are dire.

    Well then you'll be glad to know that we haven't even used half of our oil yet, after like 90 years...

    With the current usage now -- we have like 40 or 50 more years of it

    Is that out of your head or did you look it up?

    Usage will only increase with population. 9 billion by 2050 >.<

    WE NEED TO KILL PEOPLE!

    Stop giving AID to Africa, let them deal with their own problems. We need more wars. Genocide all people with severe mental defects, physical doesn't matter=Stephan Hawking. Legalize all drugs, drug use will soar and kill many people, but as the years go by, people will stop using them excessively and will moderate.

    Probably will cut the population down, while getting rid of alot of idiots.

    I have a condition in which I can barely use my right side brain. As a result when my right side brain kicks in, I act like an idiot due to it not being developed, this tends to happen more when talking to people. The rest of the time I am completely thinking logically.

    Right now this is the only logical thing we can do with our current level of technology.

    Put aside your morel's and compassion for life, you know I am correct.

    Alright, the post above was possibly the stupidest thing I have ever read in my entire life. BlargHonk you should be ashamed of yourself for being so goddamned idiotic, even if you say you're doing it to make "others feel better". Genocide is disgusting, and so is your theory. Your debate-style is better suited for a thread like this: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/f478/llamas-hats-123217/

    Zombie apocalypse? And yeah, I support the theory. Actually, I think it's happening already.

    cant we 'make' oil?
    make a giant super compactor,
    and toss a sorry animal in there [fine a plant :p]

    then compact it,
    its gota be very strong and very hot,
    we make diamonds in sort of the same way i think....

    [im probably just rambling, if this is the case you can ignore me]

    btw they got some progress done in nuclear fusion
    [fission is what is being done now, fusion is what happens in the sun]
    so that 'might' be a solution to our energy problem, but it will most likely take more itme than we have.

    also with that much power, we will all be dead if it gets into the wrong hands, which it most likely will.
