What about unconventional oil reserves?
What are we doing?
I want to believe that "the powers that be" have thought about viable solutions.
But if they had, wouldn't they have started doing something already?
I'm angry at the world's fear and denial. Ours is a generation that must deal with this horrible mess.
Our generation should start thinking about jobs that will be needed—anything that can prolong our survival. I worry that's what life is going to be about when we hit the oil production peak: survival.
I'm changing careers
"Most of us live our lives as if the oil will never run out...maybe we have to change."
It's incredibly hard for me to dream about working as an art teacher—something I've known I wanted to do since eighth grade—when I think about oil production peak.
I'm preparing for a drastic change in my career path. I'm changing careers because I think I don't have a choice!
I'm going to go back to school to pursue a different career path. Instead of taking classes in art, I'm going to earn my certification as a nursing assistant (CNA).
It's nothing I ever dreamed about or even imagined doing before I learned about world oil peak production. I think having my CNA certificate will be practical when we reach peak oil.
After I earn that degree, I'm going to return to school for my degree in art education. This decision makes me sad but, right now, I don't feel like I have the choice to just be an artist and an art teacher.
And that's not all...
