Fighting climate change & end of oil colliding

Post #1

Post by thomasdixon »

What so many people fail to realize is that there are two (2) dynamics going on here which on the surface seem unrelated which is our biggest mistake

World Oil Reserves
1,650,585,140,000 barrels
47 years of oil left
(at current consumption levels)
World Oil Statistics - Worldometer (worldometers.info)

This means, at current consumption all the known oil reserves will be sucked up and burned in 47 years.
Which means that the world’s major energy source will not be able to meet demand in 20+/- years.

If the world acts now to gradually switch from oil to renewables the transition will a peaceful one. If we do not do this, a world global fight will occur to control what oil is left. This will lead to WW3 which in itself will burn up what is left.

The term Armageddon comes to mind.
used in a generic sense to refer to any end of the world scenario.
Armageddon - Wikipedia

This may not concern you because you will not be around then; but your grandchildren will !!

Fighting climate change and discovering new renewable energy sources are fighting to achieve the same thing. The survival of the human race.

Is that a rhetorical question?
Hard to know. Jordan Peterson has some interesting things to say about global warming.
I met a cop at a doughnut shop who had "interesting things to say about global warming." Interesting things are not necessarily verifiable evidence that can be presented to support claims in a debate sub-forum particularly when the "interesting things" aren't even presented. Even if they were, that alone wouldn't verify that they are valid evidence.

Name dropping isn't a presentation of verifiable evidence.

I must assume that knowing is better than not knowing, venturing than not venturing; and that magic and illusion, however rich, however alluring, ultimately weaken the human spirit.

Video dropping isn't a presentation of verifiable evidence.

I was responding to a question I was asked, not arguing a point of contention.
