#694518 Peak Oil~Rising Gas Prices~The Future of The World

Posted by Yajimari21 on 31 August 2005 - 08:30 PM

Well I've been reading about this for quite some time now, and find it very intriguing, as most people are expecting the currently high gas prices to eventually decrease over time (as they have been trained by other spikes and decreases in prices), and do not believe that oil supplies will peak during their lifetimes, yet many specialists are pointing out that global oil supplies could peak as early as Thanksgiving of 2006 or sometime into 2007.

However, the big question is: What will humanity do to deal with this crisis? There are many alternatives in the way of energy resources, but 70% of all oil is consumed by automobiles, airplanes, trucks, etc. With diminishing oil resources, gas prices will spike to well over $7 / gallon and many airliners will go out of business because of the high jet fuel prices. With all of these domestic problems in developed countries (and also big developing countries like India and China), a great deal of tension will form between the large consuming nations and the producing nations, leading to "oil wars" (some point to the Iraqi War as a preindicator of this).

The world is incredibly unprepared for this crisis (probably to be one of the biggest in human history) and will almost definetly lead to a large-scale global recession of some kind.

It is also predicted that the,currently, enormously popular suburbs of the world will turn into the global slums as people will be unable to pay $100 USD+ per day on fuel.

Some people point to hydrogen cars, but that technology is far from being developed enough to be of use in the near future (maybe by 2015?) and biodiesel supplies are far from being ready for widespread use. Also, non-conventional supplies of oil are much harder to extract and utilize, and even though they could help keep some moderate oil supplies, it would still be far from being enough for widespread global use and distribution.

Is humanity capable of overcoming these future problems? The governments of today are making small but largely ineffective efforts to curb this future crisis (The U.S. just passed its first "suggested" gas efficiency for cars~ I think), so most people are looking to a much more difficult "market solution". With a market solution, the skyrocketing global prices of oil will inspire wide-spread investment in "green" technologies to help replace oil, but the problem is that many of these "green" technologies require oil for their research and development phases.

So, what will humanity do to overcome this?

A few oil based products:

Fertilizer (oil based fertilizer and machinery allowed for the "Green Revolution" that allowed many people to move to the cities, and drastically improved the amount of food available. Some fear that a global oil crisis may lead to mass starvation.

Plastic (... self-explanitory)


Jetfuel (no more airplanes? more efficient engines are being made that could possibly utilize the more expensive non-conventional oil resources to allow for the coninuation of flight ^^... increase in ticket prices?)

There are alot more but I am tired and weak from my wisdom-teeth removal <_<

Could there be replacements to oil?

Possible conversion of coal into oil

~(?) I read on the new york times about conversion of pig feces into oil O.o (not sure if this could ever be a major replacement)

Non-convention oil resources: tar-sands, and other things

So what are your ideas and comments? (sorry if I didn't write this well enough and my ideas are scattered... I'm tired and my mouth is really soar :( )

This was mainly based on the Hubbert Peak Theory which you can read more about here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_oil

#2082711 How much of your life is predetermined and unchangeable?

Posted by Kung Fu Hung-Su on 06 December 2009 - 12:21 AM

I for one, despise the idea of destiny. Not only do I not like the idea, but I also believe that there is no evidence, no evidence to suggest that there are such things as coincidence and fate. I like to believe that I am the one typing on this keyboard. That my meeting lovely people here, my achievements and such were all acts of my own will. But I certainly don't know everything. I'm certainly somewhat confused when people say things like

"We were destined to be together."

What does that even mean?

And not only that, but I am rather disturbed by how my demeanour is remarkably east "asian" in spite of my general lack of exposure to other "typical" east asian kids - that is, I was not really raised by my asian parents, and went to Australian schools playing cricket, footy etc with very very few other asian students, yet somehow, when I talk to asian students around my age at uni etc, I am far more at home amongst them than I am amongst my Australian friends who I have been with since birth. Is my nature somehow preordained and totally unchangeable? =/

#2200686 Japan Earthquake (Conspiracy)

Posted by Mashimaro-san on 20 March 2011 - 05:44 AM

What do you guys think of the video below? Please watch the video and my own opinions/thoughts before you discuss.


I know some of you will disagree, and some will think I'm nuts or crazy.

But strange things are going on in the world today and there are evidence that media and governments have lied before the people and continue to do so.

This reminds me of the time there was an investigative report that suggested the Swine Flu was basically a pre-testing attempt at a pandemic that is backed by the World Health Organization to curve the population growth of the world. The lady who told this has a secret bunker/hideout in Panama. She was a doctor who worked for a Head of State (don't know which country) and she was shocked when she heard this, immediately flew out of her country and searched for hideouts. The lady, she said she had no idea who these people are or what they are called, said that there are a group of 4 - 5 people who are not part of any government whatsoever but very powerful and influential, they are the ones planning these things. The lady said that these 4 - 5 group of people are behind many of the world events, and that everything that is going on is part of their plan. Their master plan is ultimately culling the world population drastically. Illuminati? Or what? The lady has no idea what the Illuminati are/is and she didn't mention it, but there's got to be a strong connection...

I believe as we draw closer to 2012 a lot more strange events will happen. It won't be the end of the world, I don't think it is. However, there will be many up and coming events in the future that will forever drastically change the world...

For some of you guys, the company/enterprise/whoever owns the nuclear plant that is in trouble right now have been lying to the media before all the way from 1970's. This was reported in CNN (or CBC, I can't remember...) I should've taken a screenshot of it while they showed that info on TV...


This is so random and out of topic but in Britney Spears' Music Video the Baphomet's head can be seen.

In BoA's GAME music video you also see the head of a Goat/Sheep/Baphomet near the end.

Seriously though I don't bother reading all these Illuminati crap but whenever I see that Baphomet/Sheep/Goat head I get freaked out since they are all connected to evil/mind-control/etc.


The lady from the investigative report said that the ultimate way to stop all these powerful individuals, these conspiracies, is if the people in the world unite as one in a violent revolution. These individuals are not that powerful, their weakness is when the masses attempt to take over their power.


I found another video from the same lady, and surprise surprise she also says the radiation levels are being downplayed by the governments and organizations. The radiation has already reached the US West Coast and people coming from Tokyo in US airports are setting radiation detector alarms off.


And she mentions the World Health Organization, and I placed a message in this same post a few paragraphs back that the World Health Organization is behind some sort of master plan. And I found that out like a week before the Japan disaster. Note that I saw it on TV casually strolling the channels and my oldest sisters, who work in hospitals agreed in many of the points the lady made on the WHO when we watched it on TV.

My sisters are intelligent and educated on medicine, they work on hospitals, and they say that a lot of the things out there we eat today, a lot of the medicines, for some reason are considered acceptable by the governments even though they are essentially toxic and probably do more harm than good. My sisters say they try natural remedies whenever they get sick, and when they are desperate they take these prescribed medicines and whenever they read the ingredients they basically just tell me this is going to harm,kill us sooner or later.

#2187315 Why is Islam and Judaism portrayed as "bad" in the West and As

Posted by Mashimaro-san on 25 January 2011 - 03:50 AM

It really baffles me that Islam gets so much hate in the West and Asia, amongst Christians especially.

I am a Catholic, I go to church every Sunday because I believe in God. However, I question the Vatican very often. It is not that I hate or dislike the Vatican, it is for the mere fact that it is run by human beings who are imperfect and are bound to make grave mistakes. So it is perfectly normal in my eyes to be cautious and question the Vatican often rather than blindly follow and agree with all its actions and beliefs. The Vatican is not run by God, because if it is, then things such as the Inquisition would have never happened in the first place. It is not perfect thus it is normal to question it, because if you look at history it has done things that are questionable.

I view Islam and Judaism the same way. I strongly believe that all religions in the world promote peace and love, but it's followers and leaders might have done questionable things.

Islam gets so much hate, especially amongst Christians. Especially the way it is represented in the media, it gives it a bad name. Islam promotes peace and love, very much the same as every other religion.

As a Catholic if I looked at it logically the Qu'ran would seem more "authentic" than the Bible. The Bible has been edited way too many times, it is like reading a Harry Potter book that has been revised over a course of hundreds of years - some of its contents have been mistranslated, taken out, added new contents, etc. The Nicea Council of 325 AD decided that there shall only be 4 Gospels in the Bible (John, Luke, Matthew and Mark) and left out 30+ other works and designated them as Gnostic Gospels. It is true that some of these works were quite questionable in nature (i.e. The Gospel of Eve promoted the use of semen and urine as ceremonial fluids, naked and sexual rituals, etc.), though some of them weren't all that bad (i.e. The Gospel of Mary Magdalene says that the Messiah is within us and it is up to us to find it and basically it is up to us to save ourselves. The belief in the self. It viewed Jesus as a man, not a son of God, which it contradicted. The aspect of Messiah as something that is within us, that everyone can save each one of us, contradicted the idea that a single person, the Messiah, will come and save everyone.)

From what I heard the Qu'ran hasn't been tampered with too much, compared to the Bible. I also heard that the Qu'ran itself seems more logical and less contradicting than the Bible. I believe that Islam itself is an amazing religion, and I believe that it just gets a bad reputation from all the extremists and those who misinterpret the Qu'ran, much like the many Christians who misinterpret the Bible and take it too litterally.

In the Qu'ran it even acknowledges Jesus as a Prophet, as a good person. In Christianity we view Jesus as the Son of God. In Islam, although it states Jesus as a prophet not the Messiah, the fact that the Qu'ran views Jesus as a good person alone should be something we Christians should at least we should take into consideration on how we view Islam.

I believe that Islam and Christianity are both religions that promote peace and love, and I want more Christians to think that way rather than bluntly call it "evil."

You'd be amazed at the results you'd get in Yahoo Answers with a quick search of "Why Christians Hate Islam?" Some of these Christians believe that Islam promotes killing and violence! Where's their bases? Have they even read the Qu'ran?

To us Christians, it would be like if a Christian raped an Islamic girl and because of that followers of Islam will think that Christianity promotes rape because a Christian did it, even though in the Bible it doesn't.

My point is, I think Christians and followers of Islam (I am not sure if I Muslim is the proper term, I do not want to offend anyone) should try to understand each other instead of bluntly hating each other.

#1911410 A Day without a Gay December 10 2008

Posted by Suzukaze Maikaru on 09 December 2008 - 11:01 AM

(12-08) 20:26 PST San Francisco -- Since California voters approved Proposition 8 last month and repealed the right of gay couples to marry, initiative opponents have marched, held rallies and blocked intersections.
On Wednesday, they're asked to do something different: nothing at all.

Modeled loosely after the 2006 immigrant rights demonstrations, "Day Without A Gay" is scheduled for Wednesday and billed as "a nationwide strike and economic boycott" at www.jointheimpact.com, an organizational site for supporters of same-sex marriage.

In San Francisco, the day will be marked by a 6 p.m. rally and march in the Mission District. But local organizers say they don't expect all Prop. 8 opponents to "call in gay" and instead spend the day doing volunteer work, as some proponents urge.

"I'd like to take the whole day off myself, but it's not possible," said Ryan Rudnick, a pre-school teacher who also helped organize a Nov. 15 rally outside City Hall that attracted an estimated 7,500 supporters of same-sex marriage. "That's why we wanted to hold a rally and march in the evening, to show our support."

Like many actions in the five weeks since Prop. 8's passage with 52.3 percent of the vote, "Day Without a Gay" took shape informally.

The name was coined by Sean Hetherington, a personal trainer and comedian in West Hollywood who added the idea of doing volunteer work, rather than pursuing civil disobedience or other tactics.

The web site Hetherington created for the event, www.daywithoutagay.org, also offers a list of activities for people who don't feel able to walk off their jobs.

"With the economy the way it is, this isn't a time for not showing up at work and then perhaps not having a job," said Hetherington, who will spend the day teaching joke-writing at a school in the Los Angeles area. "We want people to go in and make whatever opportunity they can."

The San Francisco event will begin with a 6 p.m. rally outside the BART station at 24th and Mission streets, followed by a march north on Valencia Street.

As for the broader call of boycotts, Prop. 8 opponents say success or failure can't be measured by numbers.

"It's organic, it's visceral, it's grass roots and net roots," said State Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, who spoke at the November rally at City Hall. "People are reacting in a very natural way to having their rights taken away by an unconstitutional proposition."

Leno's schedule Wednesday starts with a budget subcommittee on health and human service issues. "Though I'm respectful of the day," Leno said, legislative work comes first.

What do u guys feel about this? Do u think we can pass and have marriage equality?
as a bi man myself i'd love to call in gay (bi)
I think it is messed up how California paid more to pass Prop 8 than to make everyone equal

#2102156 Monogamy vs polygamy

Posted by Kung Fu Hung-Su on 15 February 2010 - 07:38 PM

First, some formalities.

• noun the state of having only one husband, wife, or sexual partner at any one time.

• noun the practice or custom of having more than one wife, husband or sexual partner at the same time.

In my naivete, I was not even aware of how common polygamy was in western countries, that it was mostly something we saw in Islamic countries. Of course in western countries it's not THAT common, since marriage has legal technicalities, but that doesn't stop people from having multiple boyfriends/girlfriends, or having a boyfriend/girlfriend in ADDITION to having a wife/husband.

I'm curious, what do you guys feel about people that are polygamous? I find them rather unsettling, it greatly bothers me that if they fancied my girl, they wouldn't have any reservations whatsoever about hooking up with her even if they knew we were an item and we were both monogamous. I understand that that's just their way, but that doesn't change the fact that I don't feel that comfortable with them.

And if anyone here is polygamous...what do you think about us monogamous types?

#2044816 A love that'll never happen

Posted by AzNlUv4BoA on 11 July 2009 - 09:44 PM

Okay, so you know how everyone says there always someone for somebody? As the years passed I realized it's so not true. People say I'm not looking in the right places, but the right places are the places I've been and the places I've been is everywhere. I just feel like I'll never find love. And all my life since I was a little girl was wishing to fall in love. Everyone has someone. My friends, my little cousin, and my 10 year old brother. 0.0 I'm 18 going on 19. It's kinda upsetting.

The guys I fall in love with are always the ones that are 1) taken 2) don't want to be in a relationship 3) straight up assholes.

It's only been recently guys have been noticing me and yeah. =\ They aren't looking to date me. There looking for something else. If you guys know what I mean. And I let them.. Thinking that maybe it'll change. I wanna know is there something wrong with me?

My friends love me and they wouldn't want in any other way. So why don't the guys see that? I'm funny I make people laugh. I'm not gonna lie I'm loud when I want to be. I pretty down to Earth. You can talk to me about anything. I love trying new things. . But what is wrong with me?

Is it because I'm Asian? Is it because I'm not skinny? Is it because I don't look like Megan Fox?

I'm getting sick of guys using me, but stupid me always feels that maybe just maybe they'll like me more than THAT..

My hearts been played around and tossed around. I'm beginning to lose hope. Maybe there is something wrong with me..

It's sad to see everyone around you is falling in love and I'm rotting away..

Do you guys even believe in love?

#411887 homosexuality!!!

Posted by Coolin on 09 April 2005 - 04:13 PM

My typical tongue-in-cheek responses when asked about gay marriage in real life (don't take this as a true opinion):

"It's wrong, the parts don't fit."

"God created AIDS just to kill off all the gay people."

Now that I have that out of the way, lets get on with the real issue.

Incidentally, this debate is raging in Canada right now... With some people claiming that this issue could go so far as to bring down the government. Personally, I doubt this would happen. But anyways, I'm going to approach this issue with a Canadian perspective.

In Canada, homosexual couples have all the same legal rights as married heterosexual couples. So there is no problem with unequal rights for gay couples. However, the homosexual community are angry over the fact that they cannot be labelled a "married couple" but rather simply a "common law couple".

Personally, I am for giving gays the same rights as heterosexuals. I believe that all humans were created equal, and should be treated as equally as possible. However, I am against giving homosexual couples the label of "marriage". Heterosexual marriages are, in my opinion, sacred. They have the special ability to create and foster a healthy environment for a child. This ability for heterosexual couples to reproduce is integral to the survival of our species, and I believe that couples that can further our species deserve special recognition. A man can live with another man he loves for the rest of his life, but I don't think they should have the right to be put under the same label as a man and a woman.

I am also going to use an argument posed by one of my friends instead of posing the idea as one of my own. She says that if gay marriage is allowed, and given identical recognition as heterosexual marriage, then in the future, children would not realize the distinction between the two types of marriage. This, she claims, is not right. I agree, this situation would result in a drastic decrease our ability to further our species and vary the gene pool.

Heterosexual marriages must be distinguished from homosexual marriages.

#2133674 A College Question

Posted by briannafifield on 27 June 2010 - 02:12 PM

Hello! I just applied for city college online, and I'm probably just going to go for my GED right now. But my problem is... I don't know what I want to do! Like, what career to go into, you know? I am interested in many things, but I just have absolutely no idea what I want to do. I want to take an assessment test, but I hear that they're not always accurate.

I am also hesitant to choose a career because I don't want to choose something that I will end up not liking one day, and that I will waste all of my college education and time on something that I don't like to do, and that by that time it will be too late to change. I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this, and any advice for me on this?

Thanks so much!

Posted by Kwcty6888 on 03 December 2009 - 05:31 PM

I agree with you there Hung-Su, especially the part where Animals kill off their young if they're a burden. That's what the Chinese have been doing for centuries with their one child policy, cos apparently their girls were a burden. I strongly agree with you in thinking how that's actually better for humanity and evolution cos I mean after all, we dun want any CHINKS in the armor now don't we (no pun intended). You aint the only one who dun understand why humans have "RIGHTS" to live regardless of whether they can contribute 2 society or not, I dun understand this myself! cos I mean if children are born with physical or mental disabilities, I agree with you that they're a burden to society and need to be dealt with accordingly... Like we need to get rid of'em man.... they're fudged up!

Uh, as far as I know, Chinese people didn't kill girls... They just had more children. And girls weren't burdens, they just weren't as useful. And if people are born with disabilities, you don't need to GET RID OF THEM. Just let nature run its course, if they can survive, they'll survive. What mankind is doing is making sure EVERYONE survives, or at least trying to.

#2202439 Japan Earthquake (Conspiracy)

Posted by Spring Sakura on 28 March 2011 - 10:21 PM

@Spring Sakura
There are actually University professors who are UFO-fanatics/Illuminati maniacs, conspiracy theorists.

I read of a university professor, who still teaches, and he has a belief that the US government was visited by Pleiadian aliens.

There is a former NASA astronaut who says the US government does have information on extraterrestrials, he died on 2004.

There are many other people of academia who believe that pop stars today are puppets for the Illuminati, etc.

Conspiracy theorists come from all walks of life - university professors, scientists, doctors, models, singers, etc.

There is a doctor who believes the WHO is planning on a major culling of the world population.

I'd like to say myself I believe in Aliens/UFO, but in no way do I associate any of that with my academic work, it is something I just read about, for interests and discussion.

If you ever to happen to comes across with me in real life, I can talk about almost anything, art, science, history, conspiracy, politics, etc.

See, for me, I like specifics. The university professor --of what of where?
Former NASA Astronaut with what proof? How long was he with NASA? Not to say he was completely crazy but --what about his mental state of the time of such stories --whether or not he was compensated for the story, etc etc
"people of academia"...who? Specific people like...?

Also, a small number of people believing in something doesn't make it true. Likewise, neither does a large number. Truth relies on proof. Also, words like 'professors', 'doctors', 'academia' create the illusion of credibility when really, there are plenty of professsors, doctors and academia are still human beings who are equally prone to mistakes as mental illness as the next person (not to say that they are).

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not necessarily saying that they're crazy or making things up for one reason or another --but it is important to keep that possibility in mind whenever conspiracy theories or the like are being considered because crazy people do exist, and people do make mistakes. In any investigation into any 'truth' or fact, all variances must be considered. Just my two cents of course.

Prop 8 in california was over-turned, ruled as unconstitutional!!! Finally, the freedom of love will continue to grow from this point <3

I have no idea what prop 8 is

Ooh I think I have it, it was a ''law'' that forbid marriage between the same sex. But because it was unconstitutional the marriage between the same sex is allowed again :D

Nice to hear this great news, more and more states/countries are adapting to the Dutch law ^_^

#2080221 Future Evolution in Humans

Posted by Yabisi on 28 November 2009 - 09:22 PM

What do you think humans will look like in the far future?

I think it's an interesting thing to talk about, since we've evolved quite a bit from our little time on this planet.

Some scientists say we'll look different, some say we'll stay the same, and some even say we'll become cyborgs (I think that's the right name) Here's a link discussing 4 ways we could evolve.


The second link shows detailed pictures of what we could possibly look like based on a time scale.

An older article, but still interesting. It says that humans may split into two races based on natural selection of desired genes.


Of course, these are all just theories as we don't know how we will look like or evolve in the future. For now, we can only look to how we've evolved in the past in order to have ideas for the future.


Before posting, please refer to the rules and regulations of the serious discussion forum. I posted this in here in hopes that some kind of in-depth, intellectual conversations will be started.

#1964584 A Day without a Gay December 10 2008

Posted by hcmushroom on 16 February 2009 - 12:37 PM

I would seem that a society not defined by culture, such as the U.S. causes a need for people to feel in some way included. The bad news is that some group of people is constantly excluded, the good news is that we've been slowly breaking down these restrictions. If you look through history:

white landowning males -> white males -> technical "end" to slavery -> technical "equality" to women -> civil rights movement/end of segregation

Personally, I have nothing against same-sex couples getting married. I actually hope to be IN a same-sex marriage in a couple years. I just hope its legal by that time. It does give me hope that the progression to total equality seems inevitable, especially since the constitution is on our side and all that. -_-

#2145822 What did Jesus look like?

Posted by Mashimaro-san on 03 August 2010 - 07:06 AM

Basically that's the title. It's quite controversial.

How do you think Jesus look like?

As a Catholic I grew up seeing Jesus and thought that he was some tall white man.

Then they teach at school that we don't really know what Jesus looked like, it's just a portrayal of what he may have looked like, and it varies from place to place, culture to culture.

I had an argument with my dad about it. He is an extreme Catholic. Anyways, I told him that no one really knows what Jesus looked like, and that those statues at church aren't really true, they are just portrayals of what he might have looked like.

Then he gave me a crazy look and scolded me (==" ). Was I wrong to say that? He can't accept the fact that the white-man he has worshiped and viewed as Jesus could have been a black man, an Asian man, etc. I told him that Jesus could have looked like someone else, and that they teach us that to show that we shouldn't rely on images and statues but rather in our faith in God, but then he got angry again.

To me Jesus could have looked Jewish, Asian, Black, etc. since there is nothing in the Bible that says what he looks like.

How do you think Jesus looked like? Does it matter?

To me it doesn't matter what Jesus looked like because we follow him through his examples, not how he is portrayed at church altars. I told my Dad that it's better to know that we don't know what Jesus looked like so that everyone can have different interpretations of Jesus and there would be no dispute.

Jesus could be portrayed as a Black or Asian man, or a Blond man and it would be fine since no one really knows. As long as Jesus' portrayal isn't a bastardized (ex. holding a gun, etc.) then it's fine.
