Thing is NomNom, we're already totally reliant on fossil fuels.
I think from the extensive reading I've done on the subject we are heading for a giant size crash which will mean nothing less than the end of civilsation as we know it.
It'll go something like this:
-Fuel runs short
-hauliers go out of business, therefore other busineses fail
-people cant get to work
-nothing in the shops
-locally produced stuff in the grounded trucks sold off locally
-no fuel fuel for farmers - crops go unsewn/harvested
-people are getting hungry
-authorities struggling to retain order
-military efforts to secure new oil result in death all round and fail due to lack of fuel
-gangs roaming the streets scavenging what they can
- Fire, Brimstone, dogs and cats living together etc
I dont know at what point someone (govt) might decide to build nuclear stations, or mass wind turbines, but the right time has already passed.
So if this little pocket of gas is going to cushion us, in the same way an airbag will save you if you car went off the cliffs ov dover, then all the better.
