    The United States possesses 2.6% of the worlds oil reserves while it consumes 24% of the world's oil production."

    You're getting confused by terminology. Proven Oil reserves are less than the total world oil reserves. What is known as "Proven Oil Reserves" are those quantities which are "easily" or "cheaply" extractable with today's technology.

    Yep, that is what I have been talking about. Why do you think most of our military spending has been in the middle east as we approach the peak of cheap oil in the world?

    No, it's not what you've been talking about. You started this off with "the middle east has the majority of the cheap oil"....just not true. It has a lot, but not most. The peak thing is a myth, too. BTW....how much does Afghanistan have?

    I think the religion belongs to those who say forget science and let's all BELIEVE there isn't a problem and we'll never run out of anything. You got it wrong again j.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Oil will never run out, at least not in my lifetime.
    We can bring down the cost of it by simply opening more land to drilling.
    Global warming just a hoax anyway, since I don't want to believe it.
    That $15 trillion debt doesn't matter.
    We have the best health care in the world. Why change anything?

    OK, some of those are off the subject, but so what? This whole thread is off the subject by now anyway.

    And just when I thought you were becoming reasonable with your discussion between you and MSgt. You may think what you want, that doesn't make it fact just because you think it.

    It's not about when will it run out. I have no doubt that if left unchecked...humans will consume everything they come across. However, where does oil come from? What makes it? Is it a finite resource or is it renewable? We don;t have complete answers to any of those questions.

    Personally, I beleive we are impacting our environment, but to what extent is debatable. Polution certainly has an impact, but again, to what extent is debatable. I don't like polution or excess consumption but that doesn't mean I'm:
