Oil Supply To Run Dry By The Year 2000

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’”

  1. It doesn’t matter that their forecast was a bit off. It’s still coming and you should all be afraid.

  2. Andy DC says:

    Even if none of the alarmist’s forecasts have verified, it is still worse than we thought!

  3. This is what we were taught in high school… I still remember turning to my friend and we both made the commitment to buy V8’s as our first cars, “to enjoy them for a couple of years while we still had the chance.” Let’s say we were a little sceptical of the claims even as school kids. 😉

    But we both did buy 2nd hand V8’s and drove them for a while.

    There is a National Park named after Rachel Carson.

    So why not one named after Ted Kaczynski? Their philosophies are identical.

  5. Beale says:

    There have been warnings that we were about to run out of oil since the ’60s – the 1860s.

  6. Beale: I think humans have always loved an “end of whatever” story–end of oil, end of the world, end of snow, end of trees……It’s just so much more attention catching than stories about how well the world works. 🙂
