What is the world gonna do when we run out of oil?

Almost EVERYTHING we make, depend on, and use, comes from oil in one way shape or form.
What does the future look like without it?

  • We will start making another sort of oil and convert to that. That is what will happen and in fact has started happening in some cases.

  • i see us reverting to the way things were done in the past. it take nearly 10dollars to fill up a chainsaw with gas and bar oil today and when gas does run out it all going to be done by hand just the way it was done before we had gas engines.
    zoey is right there is alternatives out there but they cant get passed onto us because of political reasons and greed.

  • It's not going to run out tomorrow. With better use of alternative energy sources, hopefully we'll be able to transfer most of the oil-based use to something less harmful and do without for the rest of it. It's about change, not about our lives ending entirely because oil isn't in the picture.

  • I also don't think it's going to happen, at least not in my lifetime.  There are pleanty of other sources, renewable energy, synthetic, etc.
