300 Years of FOSSIL FUELS in 300 Seconds

Fossil fuels have powered human growth and ingenuity for centuries. Now that we're reaching the end of cheap and abundant oil and coal supplies, we're in for an exciting ride.

We are using electronic devices that use less and less power, the cars we drive use less fuel than the cars from 20 years ago. In other words we are becoming more and more efficient... but there is a limit.

CO2 is a problem. We are running out of fossil fuels. :O Oh nooo.
Please don't kill me if I know these are not true statements but a new propaganda.
However. We do need to better our technologies to reduce truly poisonous emissions.

7: Youll find theres plenty of alternative energy sources out there, its not the "environmentalists" blocking it, its the bigger energy companies that are holding on to the technology, they dont want us small people using cheap energy, not enough money in it for them to make, compared with what they make now from us

More humans, more problems. Less humans, less problems. Simple. "Nature" will sort it all out in time, regardless of what humans want.

Quite the science fiction story. And while based on reality, too bad it had very little to do with reality. Too many lies and exaggerations.

Sustainability is not possible, greed will win at the end of the day.

#12 is right

This is a fantastic video and it would be great if the world could adapt to having no fossil fuels, but it won't. Most major countries have just buried their heads in the sand over this issue and just continue like oil is infinite. The rich people are still rich, everyone still drives a car to work and everything is ok for at least the next month so, why should we change? Short sighted greed will be the end of this planet, and I can't wait for the oil to run out.

Indeed, change is inevitable, either we change voluntarily or we are forced to change eventually. I just hope we don't manage to damage the planet irreversibly before change happens. Great video btw, well said/drawn.

#8: Alternative energy sources have existed for some time, but the problem is not so much the greed but the fact that they don't produce a constant stream of energy. This renders them pretty much useless compared to combustion or fission power.

Fortunately this is about to change. Scientists have recently developed large capacity all-liquid batteries that can handle electricity at large scale. When they hit the market, we are going to see much more renewable energy applications and hopefully get rid of our dependency on fossil fuels.

yep - its true (although the Big Bang start is still just a theory!) and world leaders tend to go this way but with wrong .. agenda 21 is official US government program planning people to be concentrated in sustainable cities in the future with two social categories - masters and slaves.. with no access to countryside for common people - chipped and tagged.. = environmentally friendly concept but is it right/ be aware of NWO.

Excellent video! People need to wake up, especially people like #7sgtstone5, who seems to be in big denial. Also, you need to learn how to spell, sgtstone5!
