A plea to federal, state, and local U.S. government officials, As well as industry leaders, community leaders, scientists, inventors, food production experts, transportation experts, financial experts, urban planners, medical experts, and all others with expertise to bring to bear on the problem detailed below.
As all of you know, our current economy is based on the availability of cheap oil. Cheap oil is
the basis for our food production (fertilizer and machinery), food distribution, transportation, heating, our other energy needs, and underpins most of the functions of our economy.
The crisis we are facing is that oil is rapidly becoming more expensive in the face of both growing world demand for oil and shrinking supply, due to the lack of new reserves discovered in recent years and the new information becoming available on previous over-estimation of the capacity of current reserves.
In addition, as the oil that is easiest to extract is depleted, future oil extracted will be the oil that is harder and more expensive to extract, which will also affect oil prices.
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, CALL FOR A FULL-SCALE EFFORT TO BEGIN NOW TO
ADDRESS THE PROBLEM OF THE DAYS OF CHEAP OIL COMING TO AN END.
