    You talk about converting U-238 to Pu-239 and then talk about using Pu-238.

    Also, you might want to write 10[sup]13[/sup] -> 1013 so that it doesn't look like 1013.

    Nothing will be enough fast enough unless it's a completely global effort, which as stated in the Original Post, is beyond reasonably possible.

    And even if it did happen, it still probably wouldn't be enough fast enough, so once it's all said and done: We're screwed.

    My advice would be to prepare for the collapse of civilization and prepare to revert back to animal instincts.

    Prepare for Collapse:
    llllllllllllllllllll 20% Complete

    Reverting to Instincts:

    Better watch out, I have a head start!

    PURE ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair price or your neighbors try to take the cows and kill you.

    would not recomend anarchy.... although.... i could get used to surrealism


    SURREALISM: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

    if the world some how changed all its governments to an anarchy, we would become a Utopian race. Like come on, no governing body,but not everyone has enough common sense so that's y we cannot have an anarchistic "government" although it wouldn't be a government then.

    But i don't think you see the joke about anarchy. Because there are more idiots out there then people with the right rational minds, if this where a governing body by the people common sense we would be all fucked four sides from Thursday.

    glorifying anarchy has become a fad here. It won't work, it doesn't work, it's not going to happen.

    Why should we worry about oil, we should worry about global warming and aliens.

    We need to worry about oil because:

    As soon as the first runs out, the second will begin to happen.

    Oil isn't important lol.
    Out technology is far more advanced then most people think. It's just that the companies selling oil prevent these technologies to be used.

    There are actually cars that will run on anything, including dishwater. But electric cars are a better solution.
    So there is no real need for concern, once oil runs out, those companies can no longer hold back these new technologies.

    It's just because they can make profit they keep it, once it does not make profit they discard it and move on to the next best thing.

    You know we actually have hovercars already? We've had them for years.

    We have the technology. We can rebuild this world.

    NO, they are working on hovercars and have some 'beta' models around.
    And they can only hover above ground for a few inches.

    ANYWAY, did you knew we have robotic libs? They just look like crap.
    (Real arms made out of metal and shit that can be used when attached properly to a body as if it was a normal arm.

    We should all stop buying oil so we can have this awesome stuff.

    While I don't remember saying that, it is a very real concern.
    Aye. Either that or just die. I figured more people would be choosing the road that doesn't kill you. :|
    If people were that stupid, they would never go for government in the first place. That the world is smart enough to make government is proof that it is smart enough to govern itself. It really is becoming quite amusing to me that people are so keen to see people in positions of power as more trustworthy than the average person.
    With that attitude you can stay out. We don't need pessimists bringing us down. Saying the world we live in is impossible. You are not a property of utopia.
    There is another thing that we do that viruses do not do. We save each other. In then end we will save each other, just watch.

    OH SHI-
    That's funny. They've never expressed interest to kill me. I haven't even thought about killing them either. I really don't see where you're coming from.
    If we were that then we would be monkeys. The thing that made us what we are is that our conscious minds are in control of our bodies.
    Yeah, but you're forgetting that there are 6 BILLION of us. Just because the technology exists doesn't mean it's mass produced. When oil starts to deplete, the infrastructure that we rely on to mass produce those new technologies will crumble, and so will our ability to develop those new technologies. We can't just use the new technology. We have to have fuel for it. For so long we've been relying on oil to be that fuel because it is so efficient.
    They wont need to. Nobody will have the power to make them.
    If only they had realized that sooner.
