I read a really depressing article about the future of oil several
days ago. There does not appear to be any viable substitute for oil
based energy at this time or on the horizon, not at the colossal
amounts we consume per day now anyway.

What's that smell? will be the new kids travel game. Actually, there are
some bio-diesel startups locally and commercial rapeseed cultivation is
being looked at. We have one new ethanol plant and another on its way.
There is also an H2 station nearby. Bike trails are also convenient for
some.
