We are going to pulverize this Earth and squeeze out every last economically recoverable drop of burnable solids, liquids and gasses. Nothing will stand in the way of that.
The real debate should be about what we do with the energy we are using up. We can talk about whether it's a good idea to use it up as fast as we possibly can, but fast or slow, what are we doing with it ? Are we doing anything with it that will help us get by when it's petering out ? Or, not? Right now it looks like not.
We are not going to extract every last drop because we will start feeling the effects of agricultural collapse long before that stage. But it is apparent that only when we have serious pain then we will get action on climate change. For now it is just academic flatulence that the elites can ignore. The left and the right are both united in the lemming rush over the cliff.
