My Op-Ed Piece...

...from today's Montgomery Advertiser:
Unfortunately, experts from every sector of the energy economy are starting to realize that the world has already consumed the vast majority of cheap and easily available oil. Indeed, even top executives from several petroleum companies are warning about this very real problem.

The fact is that without cheap oil our lifestyles will dramatically change. After all, oil isn't just used in cars. Instead, things like plastics, pesticides and many medicines are derived from petroleum byproducts. Without the oil, there would be no byproducts to manufacture these important products.
