    Why arent conservatives worried that were going to bankrupt ourselves on fossil fuels?

    Do they just think jesus is going to come back before that happens?

    Don't you mean Republicans not Conservatives? I may be Conservative but I am not a Republican. To answer your question though what do you mean bankrupt??? Why in the world would anyone be worried about going bankrupt on fossil fuel? It seems to be a good investment to me. It's supply is not increasing and it's demand is growing. It is a bit volatile with certain countries being able to manipulate it's price but really as a long term investment why not invest in the big oil production companies?

    The problem with that scenario is that everyone is a consumer of gas. Oil prices are going to sky rocket in the next 30 years.

    You just proved my point. Yes the prices are going to keep going up. That means good investment.

    Lol only for the people that actually own the oil. For those of us that simply buy it at higher prices its not so great.

    So fossil fuels becoming more scarce wont raise transportation and commodity prices?

    How do you figure?

    Most of us realize that we'll be long dead and decomposing before that happens, therefore we don't give a crap about it. :eusa_whistle:
