Technology!
Sep 09, 2003, 04:03
I guess you don't understand what technology does . . . efficiency . . . productivity.

Can you imagine how many trees we'd have to kill to have this discussion via paper instead of on the internet?

As for oil, in 1975 the environmental movement insisted we'd run out before the year 2000 . . . yet magically here we are in 2003 with plenty of oil, in fact there are more known reserves today than there were in 1975!

And you may have noticed hybrid cars with twice the efficiency of old fashioned internal combustion engines are already on the road . . . just wait til fuel cell technology becomes economically feasible. The only waste product produced: water!

"Oil" is going to go the way of the horse and buggy. (And the effect will be devastating on countries where oil is the entire basis of the economy -- and you think the Mideast is a mess today!)

And by the way energy is not a finite resource -- the sun pumps jillions of killowatts down to earth every day. Solar power won't run out until the sun explodes a few million years from now.

You need electricity to produce the fuel to run fuel cells (hydrogen and oxygen) . . . that electrity can come from solar power . . . then why do you need oil? We'll stop needing the stuff for energy long before we run out.
