Names are never my strong suit. Sorry Uncle...
And yes I agree, just how much energy is it going to take though to change over our systems to run on other products for the oil replacement though is a question and is it going to be done in time? They would need oil to produce power to make enough viable wind mills or solar panels even as they would need many for them to be effective in helping out and when oil runs out making them will not be so easy.
And for desalinzation I think that is one of the ideas they are working on here in Florida.
They haven't decided a way to go yet as cost is a big factor and hinderence though they have known for many years where we were headed in terms of water here. I fear a sink hole will swallow my house one day with the amount of water being drained from the land with wells even. Let alone the cost for water is supposed to triple in the next five years.
Anyone want to buy a house in Florida? And ah tell me where water issues are not going to be a problem with the glaziers melting and changing paths of fresh water supplies to some states? Who has lots of water er clean water that is? And not on a fault line and not near one of the 3 dormant volcanoes and not in tornadoe ally or heck... what's Canada like?
Ah it's okay J - heck, just arrived back from the Florida keys
