What happens when we run out of it?


The environmentalists will lose their foot hold on Alaska eventually, and we will end up drilling in every hole we can soon enough, but when that is done with, what happens?

Assuming there isn't a major break through in renewable energy, oil prices will sky rocket, (becoming un affordable) resulting in a need for cars not using oil that depending on the slope of the rise of the price of oil could not be met, in part because the companies making cars use energy from oil, etc.

I think it's worse than people generally think. The rate of fossil fuel/oil being made available for us to drill to us drilling it is inconceivable. It takes millions of years for an organism to be usable as fossil fuel.

So, it might not run out this decade, the next, or even this century. But, what happens if it does, and there hasn't been a major breakthrough of renewable/other non-renewable energy sources

Just wondering what other people think about this subject, as global warming is usually the bigger issue, but I think this is an issue that is more statistically easily to comprehend and feel for by any person in a developed country

Assuming there isn't a major break through in renewable energy,

Energy doesn't have to be renewable to be alternate. It will be though. The country to develop the next great energy source will be the world's next superpower.

Seriously, think about it. Coal - England. Oil - the US. Oil happens in the Middle East, the US starts to puppeteer the region.

I'm confident there will be a good source of renewable energy by the time oil runs out. My next door neighbor has an entirely solar powered house.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure by the time it happens we'll at least be most of the way to being fully reliant on renewable energy sources.

That, or we'll go completely bone dry, and there'll be worldwide chaos. But come on, that could never happen...... right?

+1. We have enough time and people already want different energy sources (mostly because it's cheaper than because they know it will be necessary later, but still).

There was a Discovery Channel special on this a while back. All hell breaks loose and governments start hoarding that shit like its a drug, then everything just goes downhill from there for about 2-3 years until we develop a better fuel source.

"How many years until the oil runs out?" doesn't seem like a very likely candidate to be the Question for Life, The Universe and Everything.

No, the question is obviously who was phone?

We're basically f*cked once the oil is done. Look at how much shit is made of plastic around you. A lot of it is pretty important stuff.

Hemp?


Bingo people, we already had the answer to this oil crisis over 60 years ago. Henry Ford made a hemp car that ran on hemp fuel and was made out of hemp. It was stronger than a normal car, and of course, used hemp as fuel.

Or there is solar power. Wind power, water power, etc.

but really, hemp can solve 99% of all our economic problems.
#30
Or we can use this for our energy and only put fossil fuels into cars.

My point up there with the UK and coal was how dependent their economy became on it. Now the world has moved on to oil, and we're completely dependent on that.

Almost every industrialized nation on Earth depends on oil. Their armies depend on oil to function even moreso. So yeah, there might be a war to control the last of the oil if there is no alternative.

everyone will have to buy a diesel car and use fryer oil. or we will all be driving 20mph in full electric cars. bmw needs to pick up the pace with its hydrogen car. as u can see, there are alternatives, but oil is such a big industry, we dont want to give it up until we have to.

Current forms of energy will become secondary before they become "extinct."

If we assume there are no breakthroughs (which I have little reason to assume), too much war to comprehend and lots of death. Pretty simple.
#35
Alternative energy sources, some of which are renewable.


We'd use them more now, but oil is so damn profitable. When we're forced to use something different then we will.
#36
We'll turn oil into a luxury item again, and then people will start traveling by foot, bike and all that until a company, in a similar manner to Henry Ford, makes affordable, effective non-petrol-based cars, at which point we'll once more go through a 10's-20's period of cars where everyone starts buying them and figuring out ways to work out the common flaws and all that.

well they are are working on electric cars, i have seen several solar powered cars done by students in uni, one group made a solar powered car that can go upto 80-90kmph.

electricity is mainly generated using petroleum products, in this region at least, but many countries are generating electricity using wind, waterfalls and nuclear energy,
