    Did I ever tell you that both your mother and I are addicted to crack oil?

    And that means that at birth, you too are addicted to crack oil for life.

    Good luck with that!

    Now where's my fucking tie?

      Now we look at that Habit,
      as a relic from a by-gone era.


      When will we be able to look at our Oil Habit,
      with the same, sober light of day?

        when oil extraction prices reach 300 or 400 dollars per barrel. anything like that. This time will come, and before/as it comes, we will have an "eternal recession", so, as some argue, maybe that last drop of oil will never be extracted.

        but we will not see the end of oil before the complete cost/price structure of our economies is not totally readjusted to much higher energy prices.

          those market forces. ("300 or 400 dollars per barrel")

          Of course by then,
          it will probably be way too late,
          to forestall the CO2 trends.
