    You mean beyond the fact that I think you have a wicked sense of humor and found your original post hilarious?

    Ditto? I have yet to be convinced it will even impact the area considering what I've read about current drilling techniques. It sounds like more of "not in my backyard" to me.

    True it's not in my yard, but those otters are so cute! Maybe it would be ok if we built the oil rigs with little playgrounds or little oil themeparks on them so the otters would be happy.

    And as a pre-emptive strike. That was a joke, I know that it wouldn't be economical to put a waterslide on an oil rig but the juxtaposition was suppost to be humorous. Oil sliding otters! I don't care who you are, thats funny!

    There's a book that my father's reading that suggests oil production under the Earth's surface is a natural process that occurs more than earlier scientists believe it does. If that's true, that would be absence of oil won't be a large problem, also lowering the price drastically. I'm hoping to read it once he's done.

    Yeah, I'd have to say first that your info is wrong, and second that there are plenty of other alternative fuels to use. Solar, wind, and heat energy are not hard to harvest. Plus, fossil fuels have major detrimental effect on everything. What a good engine to use would be son'e engine as a source of power. For more information on the engine, search google for "stone's engine"

    In the end, Darwin is right. The strongest do survive.

    Yes, I've heard similar things but haven't read about it and don't know the sources. Basically I've just heard that previously scientists thought the oil was the leftovers of previous species (dinosaurs and such) and when it's gone it's gone. But they've found that oil fields that were once empty are filling up again (don't you just love how scientists trip over facts just like the rest of us ?). So either there's an oil field they weren't aware of that's draining into the lower field or something is happening to make more oil, possibly coming up from deeper in the earth.

    What's the name of the book?
