Something to ponder: Let's use up all of the Middle East oil first. Like
Bahrain has. They now have nothing to sell. They, like Bahrain will have
to become an importer of goods. Their closed society will have to become
part of the "Flat World" as Friedman pointed out. They will have to rely
on their people as a resource and again, like Bahrain, will have to moderate
Since Canada alone has by some estimates, 1.6 trillion barrels of oil
compared to Saudi Arabia's 250 billion barrels of reserves, I doubt the next
few dozen generations will have much to worry about. I do believe that we
should act responsibly, conserve and control emissions, not just for our
sake but for the sake of the planet. That means, we (as a country) must
stop buying products produced by countries that have no pollution control
over their manufacturing.
It would take a 1,000,000 conversions from my truck to Hybrid vehicles to
equal the pollution of a few days of China's steel production alone.
(No real facts to back that up - but if you Google it, you'll find them)
Lastly, If the past 100 years is any indication, our descendants will create
technologies that will render oil production to a trickle. Or they will
witness the earth's tipping point first hand.
Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.

What do you think of when you think GM? Do you think of cars and pickups
or do you think of GMAC, Electromotive, Allison Transmission/Turbine,
Delco Electronics, Delco-Remy and more?
I doubt that GM is going under anytime soon.

Maybe 30 years ago, but not today.
Last time I was in Allison, it was part of Detroit Diesel and looked
like a morgue.
Penske gobbled up DDA, but lost track of what happened to Allison.
Rigamortis had already set in at Electromotive.
This was mid 80's.
Who is Delco?
Ever hear of Delphi who is about to go B/K?
GM has come a long way down hill since the days of 55% market penetration.
