Basically, time to do some real changes to reduce or limit climate change and most of them actually have benefits beyond the financial.

Fossil fuels are inherently unsustainable. We've had our time and now is the time to 'refine' our economy so as not to be DEPENDENT on a limited resource, even discounting the pollution and dangers from fossil fuels.

Really? Prove it. I can show that oil reserves are increasing. All you have is some failed "Peak Oil" theory which is utter hogwash. Record corn crops. Record apple harvests. Oh, I get it. You've been traveling to Toronto and hitting the pipe with their fine upstanding mayor there. Incredible how reality stares some in the face and they've been so blinded by their Socialist orthodoxy that they simply choose to ignore it.

Prove it??? Have you checked the price of gas lately?? And yes, peak oil has passed. Both the peak discovery and the peak production. It's all downhill from here as they aren't making it any more.. dum dum..

Do you understand how fossil fuels are made? And when?

yah. sure. They count it as reserved even though it is not economically recoverable or even proven to exist. Some is there but we can only recover 10%(i.e oil sands) with current technology. The 'peak' to worry about is that it is getting about 7% more expensive to extract EVERY YEAR. There is your 'peak oil' when the economy can no longer afford it.

Yup. And farmers are hurting bad as the prices are lower than their costs. Anyway, harvests are always different and this has nothing to do with fossil fuel.
