Running Out Fossil Fuels: A Cause For Glee?

"On other grounds, ethanol can't work either [3]. Meanwhile, wind, solar and hydro provisions won't be sufficient in and by themselves. In addition, what sort of work will people - the billions making their livings in industries related to airlines, cruise lines, mechanized workshops and factories producing oil based products such as plastic items and fertilizers -- do since their jobs are dependent on the use of huge amounts of petroleum? Yes, what will they all do once it all but disappears?"

Sorry, I don't see it running out anytime soon. Probably not even within the next fifty years, and I'll be gone by then.

That's correct, perhaps more than fifty years if they found some in arctic.

They can always extract oil sand:
"And while the group called for 2015 production from the oil sands of 3.4 million bpd last year, its updated study calls for output from the region to be just 2.8 million bpd as development takes place at a more measured pace."

And you can bet that the "more measured pace" is closely related to the per-barrel price of oil that's already being extracted. As the price of that oil rises, I'd fully expect that the pace of new development will become significantly less "measured".
