3. Ethanol... Last I recall from dieoff.org, it takes 2x the effort to get
the 1x usefulness from oil. Go prove how bright you are compared to the rest of us and look up the exact page, you clearly don't need my help. O8)

I agree with nuke power, however.

Also, how much bio can you grow for biodiesel (I'm so dumb I got the spelling right, unlike you) when more farmers are selling off their land because they get some more money out of it?

We can't grow our way out of this problem and, as has been said, ethanol takes more energy to make. It SEEMS cheap, but without the oil it's perched on, it's WORTHLESS.

http://www.thebulletin.org/issues/2004/jf04/jf04cavallo... is another intelligent article, particularly surrounding Iraq and how stupid people are for thinking the stuff won't ever dry up...

Conservation? Your intelligence is not quite showing itself today. Carter warned of not conserving and got voted out. We've been astronomically using more and more of the stuff after the 1970s crisis ended. Worse, our society and very economy is based on EXPANSION. When peak oil hits in ~2012, expect a big crash.

Stupid is as stupid claims others to be.

'nough said.
