The thing that keeps me nervous is how dependent we have become on petroleum for production and distribution of food - feeding an ever increasing number of people. If petroleum keeps rising along with population I see a food cliff in the future somewhere. I know man is pretty creative at solving problems, but as Chris Martensen says the days of drilling a hole in the ground and having oil come shooting to the surface are over - we are grinding oil out of rocks now and the cost to produce a barrel is rising every day.
