World oil reserves at tipping point, but stupid Woodstock hippies tip us over

October 21, 2010

Oil rig. Capacity to meet projected future oil demand is at tipping point, according to new research.

Dr Oliver Inderwildi, Head of the Low Carbon Mobility centre at the Smith School, said: ‘The common belief that alternative fuels such as biofuels could mitigate oil supply shortages and eventually replace fossil fuels is pie in the sky. There is not sufficient land to cater for both food and fuel demand. Instead of relying on those silver bullet solutions, we have to make better use of the remaining resources by improving energy efficiency. Alternatives such as a hydrogen economy and electric transportation are not mature and will only play a major role in the medium to long term.’

so stop it with the Alternative or bust jive. you are killing us.
