    Not that any of you give a dam but did you know the world consumes a approx of 80,000,000 barrels of oil a day. that 1000barrels a second. Does this prove how important oil is to us ?? fuel, plastics, roads e.g
    do we need to do something ?
    Tell me your views :nehap:

    World Major Problem !

    You are the ones driving your 4X4s consuming the oil but you still just dont care ! Ok fine if any of you had an operation you shouldnt of had it !! Becuase plastic gloves used by surgeons are in fact oil based. Dont bother driving your cars. Dont use any plastic products. Dont even bloody eat because your food is imported into supermarkets by trucks (Fueled by oil). Dont go on holiday ! No electricity ! AND MUCH MORE. If you say
    "so what" then you are a pethetic excuss for a human being !
    Yeah a discussion about warcraft is great but give a attempt to be more grown up

    If you do care and look at the obserd 1 second consumption then please share your ideas how to use oil more efficiently. ------------------------------------------------

    none of us?!?!? you can't really support that....

    but ne way im just gonna say.... lets up future inventors, scientists, etc... figure a way to provide new ideas and products that could change our ways of living... if we don't and lose all natural resources without caring or anything else.... humans aren't so intelligent after all, but lets hope someone could find an alternative to oil :D hehe

    sry, but I'm only 16 and I'm too scared to drive a car xDD then how do YOU drive to school/work - if you have a work/go to school huh?? do you just walk those 100 km?? no - you drive a car 'cuz of it >.>
    and also plasitc isn't such a good thing - when you have plastic bottle, its recycling is better than recycling a plastic ^^ and also - oil isn't the only thing we have on the earth - we can use water efffectivly too ^^ but - we don't have much clean water, do we?? so OIL ain't the ONLY prob' on the world ^^ and also - fires, global warming and other catastrophes (cannot name it in eng xDD ehm-hm.. xD) so I don't think, that you'll solve it in ONE post on the hive >__> just take a sweet nap and think about the apocalypse - how it can be a sweet end of these shitty things, okay?? :)) (I do it sometimes, when I have depression ^^)

    Energy alternatives exist. They just aren't used because oil is so cheap that it isn't viable to use any other source of energy.

    When the world supply of oil dwindles, the price of oil will increase, thus making other energy alternatives viable. Simple economics.

    Also, as oil prices increase, people will find other sources of oil. There is a ton of oil in Canada that no one has really begun extracting due to the fact that it is more expensive.

    Thats it, better comments ! ive read all your views now ill need more ! 1000 barrels a second !! Bloody hell thats a lot 346 litres in a barrel. =364000 litres of oil a second. We must find a alternative or there will be some serious problems !

    that is very true.... but for sources of energy for any vehicle... i would highly recommend Hyrdrogen..... because its EVERYWHERE!!! :D hehe

    Yeah i agree ! Hydrogen, powerful so it can be used in a modifacated combustion engine. Well might as well build one from scratch ^^. But unfortunatly hydrogen is very explosive. I suggest for the time being we use electric cars. Chargers are the petrol stations and there we will need a Huge nuclear power plant constructed to supply the electricity needed.

    Ill continue tomorrow

    Looking forward to seeing more comments

    You do realize, yes, oil destroys the O-Zone layer, but not near as bad as rocket ships going through it.

    And then you have people that complain about freon from AC's, you can let all the freon out of every AC in the world, and not do nears as much damage as a rocket.

    And about the electric cars, they do not run solely on electricity.

    We need oil to be burned every day to increase the flow of CO2 in our atmosphere.
    CO2 is also known as magic and it's needed to destroy the wandering souls of the restless death. So our aura won't be violated by them any longer. If our aura is restored, we'll be able to stop burning so much oil. But for now, we must continue!

    lol no matter what kind of energy we use, each has its flaw! :p hehe

    Oil is probably a good fuel for now. It gives us the energy needed while we work on alternative power sources like fusion or bio fuel.

    If we put our knowledge of drilling for oil to good use drilling for geothermal, we could easily solve our energy problems. Bio fuel is a joke AFAIK and fusion requires deuterium and tritium which aren't exactly renewable or easy to come by. Waiting for "simple economics" to make oil more expensive than other renewable sources is so stupid. /facepalm

    Scientists have recently increased voltaic efficiency to 60% (up from 10-15%). Not only that, but they are developing it like a paint, so you could paint solar panels on your house. Currently it cannot be mass produced though and it may be 6-10 years before it can be, so I think geothermal is the best.

    Every bit of oil we are using now should be put to use making these renewable energy sources.

    Also, don't confuse hybrid cars with electric cars.

    He never said it was a solution to the problem, just that it could make other sources more attractive in comparance. :p

    What a lot of people fail to realise is deploying solar energy (solar electricity) anywhere else than the equator costs energy instead of making energy cause the life of the cells are shorter than the payback time for the energy used to make them. Although modern processes could increase the band of useful solar, it will never mean that placing solar cells in the UK would ever be productive.

    Geothermal energy is another option, too bad selfish humans are not willing to risk it cause it is proven to cause faults to slip more easilly and thus release earthquakes (the joke is they actually save lives cause the earthquakes are smaller then without harvesting geothermal energy) but the liability means it cant be done.

    Additionally if america kicked its ass into gear with its energy policies they could cut their oil consumption by 25% or more to be simlar to that of germany.

    I never said it wasn't. Also, economics works both ways, by making other sources of energy cheaper/more efficient it makes them more viable. But regardless, thats beside the point.

    Geothermal energy is probably our best long-term source of energy. Solar and wind power are good, but would only be efficient to use in certain areas of the world.

    You are forgetting fusion. The process of converting mass to energy which the sun uses.
