    Oil companies; this period in our transition to renewables is waiting for you to do the right thing. You can use your current profits to design and manufacture a new energy wave that will glide us into a great future.

    Convert your gas stations to support hybrid cars and at the same time invest in hybrid car manufacture. You were the leaders in the fossil fuel industry and you can continue to be the leaders in our future energy needs.

    Please do it, for your future and the future of modern civilizations to come.

    I don't know why running out of oil in 19 years bothers anyone. The world is gonna end in 12 years, anyway, according to a certain congresscritter. :right:

    Oh, those sanctimonious talking points. :lmao:

    Your math is wrong because the current rate of consumption is falling, and there are quickly becoming new ways to produce oil substitutes that will be both cheaper and cleaner. Oil is dominant chiefly because oil is easy
