The recent world energy report has focussed attention - at least in the NA media - on the startling and seemingly wonderful prediction that the US will become the largest oil exporter by 2025.

The reality is much less rosy and much more complicated than that possibility would seem to imply, as explained in the link:

Brown, that's loooog. Worth reading, for sure.

So about the time I start to get "old", life will be like that TV show "Revolution". Wonder if I can rig this kepboard so that I can use the treadmill and cruise HT at the same time--I'll need to be in good shape ;D

Soylent Green scenario in our future? 2022 is just down the timeline and a scenario also plagued by global warming and weather nasties.
