The Price of (Replacing) Oil

One of my favorite columnists is Tamim Ansary. He has written several articles for Encarta that I found incredibly educational and interesting.

His latest is one on what would happen if the oil economy was replaced by a new source of energy. The Price of (Replacing) Oil

His conclusion:
Indeed, the only thing worse than finding an alternative to oil will be not finding one. Because whether or not we have a replacement, fossil fuels will run out. And the more sudden it is--this inevitable transition to the post-oil world--the more cataclysmic it will probably be.

Something to keep in mind.
