My 3 ton service truck, that has to start in -40C weather every single day after sitting all night, travel hundreds of kilometers into areas where there's no power to be had, boost start heavy equipment....blah blah blah. Trying to turn setups like mine into an electric operation is the stuff of nightmares for engineers. By the time you put enough batteries together to keep me moving, you's need 3 more axles just to carry the weight.

    If I stay local, I usually burn a tank every 2-3 days. More than once, Ive had to fill up twice in the same day before though.

    Just what wonder chemical will be used to make the tires for all those cars and trucks? Insulation for the wiring? Battery cases? Paints? Interiors? There will be more oil pumped out of the ground than ever before in the history of mankind.

    That issues has been solved(sort of)... manufacturers have been using soy based wiring that is like candy for little furry critters.

    So, the counties with the holier than thou, self destructive eco-governments want to ban gasoline and diesel. Depending on what happens in the next 2 or 3 elections, we could easily be grouped in with them. The fact of the matter is, 99% of the world still hasn't signed onto this latest ban-fad. I'm sure oil will be replaced someday. I just don't think it'll be anytime soon.

    Oil will be used until there is no more to be used. And the last country holding some either becomes the pimp-king or the whore. With the refusal to properly make use of the oil in Alberta it's entirely possible that Canada could be the last one standing, but with armed forces totaling 100,000 Canada will be the whore that the USA and China battle over. They might ignore most of the East, but Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary will be left to make Stalingrad look like a 5-star resort in comparison.

    Bingo!

    This is something I have been thinking for about 40 years. That Canada with all of it's land and natural resources, will be the prize.

    Small army, complacent population, authoritarian so called liberal government that sucks up to globalists and super villain soros, clinton et al, it's like the best looking apple on the tree saying

    What is most likely is that someone will simply and make economical a process of hydro-bonding that will allow us to bond shorter hydrocarbon chains together to form heaver distillates from more abundant lighter ones. Currently everything (outside of the lab) is hydro-cracking (cracking towers) where we break long chains up into smaller ones.

    We will run out of usable hydrocarbons in five or six hundred years. By then I expect that we will be able to bond air into tar using electricity from molten salt thorium nuclear reactors (currently in the lab).
