Yep, could they have been more wrong? Here we are 40 years later and their predictions of oil running out is still just a fantasy. The video of your re-animated Carter like crony is just hilarious though and good for a great laugh.Jimmy Carter delivered this televised speech on April 18, 1977.
Because we are now running out of gas and oil, we must prepare quickly for a third change, to strict conservation and to the use of coal and permanent renewable energy sources, like solar power.
World consumption of oil is still going up. If it were possible to keep it rising during the 1970s and 1980s by 5 percent a year as it has in the past, we could use up all the proven reserves of oil in the entire world by the end of the next decade.
