Geez ... peak oil between now and 2040? ... I wonder what other "crisis" will be published shortly to make it a trifecta ... with the Global Warming hysteria, do we need more of this bureaucratic scary crap?

Every time a "crisis"is discovered, politicians find an excuse to dole out $$$$ to find "solutions".

If we don't die from obesity, we will die of panic thinking of what Global Warming is going to do 100 years from now, or conversely worrying about peak oil and how I am going to be able to find gasoline to fill by 3 foot car in 2040 ...or maybe by that time I will be riding a horse and will not need to worry about peak oil anymore... ugh!!!

When the so called "energy crisis" hit the front pages in the 1970's we created the Energy Department. A totally useless government Department in which we pour yearly billions and billions of dollars and from which not a single practical "solution" of significance has ever arisen.

We have spent over $200 billion in that department ... God forbid just to think how much more we are going to be spending on this peak oil nonsense and the global warming hysteria especially now that Al Gore is a Hollywood star and soon to be a Noble Laurate ... O God I am on my way to the bathroom to puke...
