Abandon Ship!Submitted by dailypauler on Tue, 08/13/2013 - 14:00
It's scary but I think it's time to abandon the ship. The ship of which I am speaking of is "oil dependance." The ship's infrastructure is too vunerable to manipulation, easily destroyed, the main cause of many wars and toxic to the environment. It's going down and everyone knows it. For that reason I think it's past time to get on another ship.
So my question to DP is "What ship should we start supporting & board en mass before the SHTF"?
Out of all the different energy concepts available I believe we should now go "methane" and/or it's derivatives, i.e. biogas, propane, etc.
Here's why, it's cheap and easy to obtain or make and doesn't take "billionaires" or a lot of infrastructure to get going or switch over to. In fact a lot of the methane concepts are already "up, running and tested." The switch could happen relatively easy and we should not wait until were "forced to go there." At this time, it looks to me as the only thing we've really got.
If you believe or know of something better that is actually "doable and inexpensive," then please let's here it and why you think so.

For anyone who believes there will always be petroleum available, that may or may not be true, but at "What price would that be"?
