So, unless you trade in your SUV/truck for some small compact, take out your bike, or move closer to the city, you won't be helping the cause.

    Also, the future of energy will not get a leg up until we are close to drying up. It's either human nature or the power that oil companies have. Climate change will not be taken seriously until it affects enough people directly, so shoot, why care now?
    Competition brings down prices.

    Who would be hiring the employees and paying them?

    There are private companies now working on alternate sources of energy and the quest will continue. But until that happens the world needs the energy we have access to.

    That's not the reason unless you actually believe that other countries have no regulations.. Deal with the realities here.

    If the price goes too low, the profit margin won't be as good on the tar sands. It's more expensive to get that oil, so if the oil companies can't recover the increased cost they'll stop producing there.

    I have no idea why this is so hard to understand. I'm at a point now where I'm about to draw pictures in desperate hope to some of it might sink in.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You understand it.. Very few do..

    Tar sands, Shale oil and deepwater production will shut down if the ppb goes much below $80.
