    does everybody know that according to some Oil Geologists (e.g. Colin
    Campbell) in 2013 the world oil output is going to peak ? Are you
    aware what this does mean for all of us ? We have 4 years from now,
    until there will not be enough energy for travelling, heating and the
    most important for food for everybody of us. Oil prices will begin to
    peak, not 150 USD/barrel, much much higger prices are expected. Many
    people will loose their jobs and many of us will begin to starve.
    Alternatives will also be more expensive since the demand will
    increase astronomically. Alternative energy will also be much much
    more expensive, due to the demand and due to much higher costs. Making
    a wind turbine cost a lot of energy. Making ethanol cost a lot of oil
    (pesticides, insecticides, transportation, production, harvesting,
    fertilizers etc.). Making insulations cost also a lot of oil.

    What is the solution ? The only way is to act now, individually. Now,
    where the oil prices are still cheap, although there is an increase,
    each individual can begin to prepare himself for these hard times in
    near future. Insulation of houses, solar cells, which are now more
    affordable (in ebay 1 W solar cells cost 1 USD or even less), solar
    water heating, solar heating with mirrors reflecting the sunlight to
    your home in winter, making your own wind turbine (a lot of
    instruction of cheap design can be found in the internet), buying a
    plug-in car or a hybrid vehicle, using energy efficient lightning,
    heating with heat pumps, making a winter garden etc. are some of the
    things each of us can do to prepare himself/herself for hard times and
    to save money and energy. There are also ways to save energy and try
    to extend the date a little bit by using the car only when necessary,
    using the bike instead of your car, using public transportation,
    converting the car to methane fueling, saving energy where ever it is
    possible, not only in your home also in your work, etc. will help to
    extend the date.

    The other alternative is to wait until this date, actually the
    economical crisis is in its ending phase and the oil prices will again
    rise to record highs. But this is nothing compared to the prices when
    world oil supplies will deminish 4% yearly. And after this date (2013)
    very very hard times may come. Starvation and even worse things like
    war are the alternative.

    If you act now, you will also help to produce new jobs in your

    Me, I'm going outside right now to drain the water out of my swimming pool.
    Then I'll fill it with crude. That'll show em...

    Others think peak oil is already here. How quickly prices will rise
    depends on demand as well as supply, and the shock of $4 oil last year
    has shown how much demand can drop.

    But oil is sure to rise eventually. Natural gas supply is however
    rising rapidly, and that may soften the blow.

    My old '99 OB 2.5 is doing nicely on E85.
