WE are SCREWED [Vox]

Well this phrase was used by a professor who teaches us environment management at MBA school. They were not his exact words. This was the most easiest and likely interpretation of the whole dialog that he shared with us.

Some of the slides and learning’s from the presentation were that we have just about 50 years of crude oil with us. This is an optimistic estimate. Pessimistically we have just about 30 years of crude with us. You do the math. So by about 2039 we could realistically close our oil wells for good. Practically all hell will break loose though some years before that.

He gave a very funny example to put his point. Apparently this was in some TV show it seems. An Arab was saying that his grandfather travelled in a camel, his father in a car, he travels  business class, his son owns a private jet, his son however will travel by a camel. Notice the full circle.

I have watched the movie, “An inconvenient truth” but a lecture by the professor paints a different grim picture in front.

Finally to put a nail in the coffin, he goes on like well i am old, i may have max 20 years to go. So i have oil, gas and everything else when i die. What about you.

Thought in my head “ We are so Screwed”
