      When we run out of oil the climate swings may return to what we used to call normal.
      I am bewildered to watch people jump up and down to create renewables because of climate change when at the same time oil reserves are running out too.

      I find it ironic that both goals have the same end in mind.
      comments welcome

      Search for renewables goal: arrest climate change, maintain standard of living.

      Run out of oil: arrest climate change, world crashes back to a preindustrial standard of living.

      Not the same at all, I see no irony.

      There is no irony for me either.
      - Renewable sources are to get rid of burning exhausts.
      - The reserve of not renewable sources is not the intertwined subject and it is not a new thing. They will be depleted one day. And new sites for mining are being searched.
