BS. We have enough oil for 500 years, coal for 200 years, and incaluable reserves of natural gas. If you covered all of NJ with solar panels and windmills, they would not provide 1/2 the energy to run a small state like NJ, and would cost more than twice as much. My Feb. Nat. Gas bill was $22--better than a tank of gas. You pay for inadequate energy that takes up unconsciencable space, kills endangered bird species, fries desert tortoises in the SW, and ruins views of the horizon if you want, but the rest of us prefer reasonable energy production at home in the US.

I never said we we running out only commenting on the price trends. When rentable energy cost drop to half of fossil fuels I doubt anyone will want to pay more for fossils. My crystal ball is pretty fuzzy, I do not know when this might happen.

It may well be that the costs of fossil fuels WOULD climb upward at a trajectory that would have them meet the cost of renewable energy, but only if the government continues to keep the price artificially high by interfering with the marketplace.
Celebrities are now upset about fracking, the injection of chemicals into the ground to crack rocks to release oil and gas. With everyone saying they want alternatives to foreign oil, I'd think celebrities would love fracking.

I'd be wrong. Lady Gaga, Yoko Ono and their group, Artists Against Fracking, don't feel the love. Yoko sang, "Don't frack me!" on TV.

Stopping fracking is the latest cause of the silly people. They succeeded in getting scientifically ignorant politicians to ban fracking in New York, Maryland and Vermont.

Hollywood gave an Oscar to Gasland, a documentary that suggests fracking will shove gas into some people's...
