I don’t know how to spell Anwar, so let me apologize in advance.

Does anyone else see the oil under Anwar as a last ditch reserve? People seem to forget that oil is not only used for cars and electricity. All plastic, some medicines, and many other chemical processes depend on crude oil. Why do people want to burn through all the oil we have in the least efficient way we know? Would it not be better to redirect the effort we spend on finding more oil into making our use of it more efficiently? Then, we would make the new oil we find last a lot longer. I think this is the only real solution.

Oil is finite. I don’t know why we don’t treat it that way. I guess abundance is just our culture. There is always a seemingly endless supply of almost everything; it is hard for us to imagine that something we depend upon so heavily will eventually expire.
