You know what's going to cure climate change? Peak oil. There are bazillions of cars out there. I swear to god! Have you seen the traffic? Driven on the expressway? I think there are more cars than there are people.

No way can we keep driving all the motor vehicles that we drive and not use up all the oil eventually. It may take a hundred more years but eventually the Earth will run out of petroleum. It can't be an infinite resource.

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.
