I'd like to point out that gloating over correcting someone is not something I do. It's a bit double-dee douchey. One and done and we move on. Politically, we largely agree so I see no harm from continuing this conversation which is really about pieces of shit evil Cronies continuing to ****up the environment...and impede our progress to a sustainable energy future (this could be a stock pun but I am not clever enough to make it).

I have an encyclopedia published from 2005 stating that we would run out of oil by 2012. I open it every now and then to lol at its stupidity.
Also lol at gas stations being replaced by supercharger stations anytime in the next 20 years. Until the convenience of spending 5-10 minutes max refilling with gas is matched by chargers it ain't goin to happen.
Until that's addressed, electric cars are never going to take over fossil-fuel driven ones. A good chunk of people in this country don't have a garage to plug their car into over-night. What about those who park on the street or in apartment complex lots? All of the infrastructure to support that many people charging all at once would need to be completely revamped. Think of black-outs as everyone comes home from work to plug-in their cars. Hell, we some cities can't even handle mass air-conditioner use.
We should be looking into hydrogen powered cars.
Also I'm totally pro-electric cars as long as they're not hostile towards my gasoline driven ones. Like no government mandates to phase out gasoline cars.

Okay, I did. You're right: only a hair more effort required to take it from the gibberish I'm coming up with and what they are doing. This is doctor seuss level's of rhyming lazy (making up words to rhyme).
I remember this number. I think it is supposed to be the turning point that we would start using more than new extractions would produce. Meaning, it doesn't mean we would run out, it would mean new "sites" would be discovered less and less that we would hit a turning point of exhaustion and I believe that date was projected to be 2012. What I mean is, "new sites show 100 barrels of oil and we are using 101 barrels of oil." Make sense? Post the exact wording from the encyclopedia. Take a picture. I am sure that's what it means.

“Wow this is a horrible comment. LETS CONTINUE THE STATUS QUO!!!
Impediment in the 1800s — “If you’re against slave labor, don’t wear those comfortable cottons just walk around naked you liberal b!tch. Either go start a revolution or sit down and shut up”
Here’s the truth. Renewable energy technologies are advancing rapidly. Solar powered energy can now be stored in batteries and is powering entire islands in the pacific. GM has announced a fully electric future for cars, very soon gas stations will start to be replaced by power stations. Oil and Gas is here for now, but it is not the future. 20 years is the life span of the status quo, approximately.”
Comparing oil to slave labor.
This is both face palm worthy and incredibly hilarious.
El Oh El, indeed.
If renewable energies are advancing so rapidly then where are they, Mr. Economical Scientist? Oil may not be the cleanest industry, but it’s going to be here for a LOOOONG time and you’re still going to be a user of said product.
BTW, the Quote feature isn’t working. This site is slowly dying more and more, I swear.
I use quickquote, capture the post ID, then use the standard quote feature on a non-broken post, replace the name and post ID with the proper id, then chop up a post piece by piece so it results in what I want to respond to.
Seems like a lot but it is only 10 seconds extra of effort to do a proper reply.
Well electric cars are progressing at a very fast pace. The barrier to entry has always been the price, but with the new Tesla costing 30k that may be history. I think you'll see a veritable explosion of electric vehicles over the next 5-10 years or so because the price is finally coming down and will continue to across the entire industry.
In other areas Fossil fuels will continue to dominate because so many industries are invested in it, but don't take it for granted. Oil will be going the way of coal in the next century or so. Maybe sooner.
