    I don't think I'm the one being narrow minded for asking a question no one is willing to entertain it seems.

    What will the industry look like, if industry experts are right about peaking demand?

    I left O&G years ago, as it became rather obvious I was not one for the industry and the dirty politics of oil. Never will I return to selling my soul on an hourly basis. How Alberta is 10 billion in the hole and a one industry province has never felt right. Everything I do now involves oil money in one way or another and it does not go without consideration.

    Relocation to BC fairly soon, my next vehicles will be electric, hybrid or a combination of the two. The house will be modest by Calgary standards with heating and cooling costs a 20th of my current place. Cycle when I can, been too green for the wasteful pro-oil types my entire adult life. You get it or you don't.

    We all need to be honest about what feels right. To each their own.

    I'm surprised on the number of people that "hates" the industry but will return once the money is back... AB is oil, everything is linked to it directly or indirectly, if you dont like it, i think it's time to move (not necessary a bad thing)

    Personally I've never been in O&G so i cant comment.

    We will never run out of oil. We'll just hit a point in time where extraction is unprofitable and were forced to switch fuel sources.

    I kid.

    Will you rip some greasy farts and smell all your smug too?

    Make sure you electricity is from dams and not dirty coal or gas.

    Also make sure your bike has a wood from from ethicaly harvested wood and your tires are made from... uhh... pelts??

    Just make sure it feels right man. Right on

    All or nothing? That's your argument?

    Modern life has evolved a certain way. Those taking even modest steps should be encouraged, not slandered with the whatever you do, it's not enough to satisfy my all or nothing attitude.

    Remember, in high school, reduce, re use recycle?

    I readily support efforts to use alternative energy sources and also attempt to limit my own wasteful use.

    The problem is, much like the sjw movement, people take this stuff in extremes and no longer look at things with moderation and logic.

    It's easy to espouse criticisms of our industry, but when the chips are down the same people making violent and strong statements against our work, rarely take any steps themselves to back up their position.

    All the people who say that oil and gas is ruining the environment are still buying new phones every year, still buy cars and clothes brand new homes. Nothing but hypocrisy at its finest.

    If you're serious about your views, buy a smaller home and less things. Less consumption of the products you so vehemently hate.

    I'll never understand this new ideal that has become so popular. To have polarizing hatred of something or a subset of someone's all the while consuming from the same trough.

    Fuck off.

    The problem is educated people are too busy working to give a damn and it's the peasants that have all the time in the world to voice their opinions and protest. 90% of the time people don't even know what they are protesting. Occupy Wall St was the start of random protesting

    It's not the principles of Minimalist's posts that are questionable - it's the smugness he bakes into them. His high horse only emits methane.

    As for when we reach peak demand - then we will be like every other mature industry where innovation succeeds, and the ones that can't deliver a high-value product go away.

    This morning I stood in line for coffee behind 2 girls chiding a male aquaintence for posting his kill on fb. These 2 girls were both wearing Canada Goose jackets with the fur hoods.

    These two reminded me of gestalt.

    2 pigeons squawking with no real grip of context, insight or strength of conviction.

    Yeah, I'm talking about your thinly veiled superiority complex and not so eloquently disguised lack of knowledge. Your immaturity betrays you with the questions and short quips you've vomited on this thread.

    We see you.

    More all or nothing impossible standards.

    I find that dishonest.

    , doing nothing is noble.

    Doing something is a crime, because it's never enough.

    Now that I know the rules, I'll he more careful.

    Unfortunately, they were fucking stunning. One of them resembled Ariana Grande with a wider mouth, body like Caley Cuoco. The other was a carbon copy of the arab porn star turned blogger (?). Couldn't get pix. Too distracted by conversation.

    Sorry man.

    This has to be a troll post.

    If not...you should move to Portland instead and join your hipster brethren.

    Worst response ever, plenty of fags have wives. You should most certainly ask your wife if she knows your gay, it might help a lot of the imaginable marriage problems you guys have



    Edit-
    If it makes you feel any better, this is pretty gay too

    Enlighten me on how your heating and cooling costs will be 1/20th of the current?

    Are you including the initial cost of (assuming) solar panels or geothermal or whatever else you plan to do?
