Soylent Oil? Will dead people solve Peak Oil?
From a discussion of Thermal Depolymerization.

<edit>

If the process works as well as its creators claim, not only would most toxic waste problems become history, so would imported oil. Just converting all the U.S. agricultural waste into oil and gas would yield the energy equivalent of 4 billion barrels of oil annually. In 2001 the United States imported 4.2 billion barrels of oil.

<edit>

And what is your potential post-moterm contribution to the worlds energy needs?

If a 175-pound man fell into one end, he would come out the other end as 38 pounds of oil, 7 pounds of gas, and 7 pounds of minerals, as well as 123 pounds of sterilized water.

- sounds a little more clever. I think it's a good idea, and a credible solution to the homeless problem.

3. A way to get away from the Big Oil companies??
It'll never happen. At least, not as long as they control the government they way they have been.
