I got sent an interesting article on world oil consumption today. It’s a fascinating read, and the conclusion is that in the next six to eleven years, the world will have to drastically change the way it produces energy. Oil is integral to more than just energy consumption, and it’s going to be interesting seeing how things play out.
As a kid, I remember hearing all about renewable energy, and thinking it strange how obviously better it was, and yet how little we used it. We are truly lazy creatures, but soon our hands will be forced.
As usual, I get caught in this weird brain loop whenever I start thinking about the future and what it’ll be like. I can’t really describe this… I just know that it’s something I’ve always done… I used to do it more, but haven’t as much lately. It’s really just a train of thought that somehow just keeps looping around the same track–the engine connected to the caboose; an ouroboros in my brain. It’s not that I don’t go anywhere, but that I keep visiting the same images and ideas, mostly snapshots or impressions from science fiction books I’ve read.
