Just saw a documentary that we're running out of oil reserves (at least those that are worth drilling).
We use oil for our cars (gasoline), plastic, nylon, and other everyday things.
If we run out of oil within the next 10 to 15 years, how do you think civilization is going to adapt?

We wont adapt if we don't start moving quickly towards green energy, and inventing new products that don't rely on oil in the production process. However, there are certain members in our society, and in congress that are holding us back.

of course we will adapt SRiver. People have adapted to everything else over history. One way we will adapt is to drill more in our own country where the reserves are shut down for the environmentalists. Some of you act like we have been using oil for cars for thousands and thousands of years......automobiles have only been around since the early 1900's, and with technology moving at the pace it is I am sure a new mode of transportation will be along. That is if the gov't doesn't stifle all creativity in its effort to make everyone spread the wealth.....

Everytime someone on the right answers one of these questions they say, "oh we can just drill.
North America only holds about 16% of the worlds oil reserves, and part of that belongs to Canada. Do you know how long that would last if we were cut off from foreign oil today? 8 years approx.
8 years with all the stonewalling that the right does, is not a whole lot of time to reinvent the way we do most things. Do you realize how many things we use oil for? We need to start this NOW. This goes beyone drilling, which will do, little good.
