"Perhaps. There is also hope for new forms of energy. For example, there' sort of Moore's law when it comes to the cost of solar PV. At the beginning of the century the cost was something like $8/watt. Now it is down around a buck. It doesn't have to get a whole lot lower before it becomes practical for most applications. We're already moving towards electric cars." - sykesix


I just have a difficult time believing there's enough energy in sunlight to carry my lazy fat butt to the grocery store to buy more food. They'd have to save it up for a long time to get enough kilowatts to transport my lazy carcass around.

I hope I'm long gone by the time the gas runs out.
