Hi everyone!

Here I am again. I note that John Grigg may be joking when he gives his
own answer about God as an old man.

As for substitutes for oil, I will make some points. First of all,
several companies have produced advanced fuel cells, which can take
hydrogen and turn it into water + electricity. Several of these have
already been installed in city buses in various US cities and overseas.
There is already at least one company that has a much cleaner and easier
way to create hydrogen from oil, gas, etc, and hold and dispose of
the remainder.

But perhaps most interesting, it is the OIL COMPANIES who have taken
considerable steps toward finding alternatives for oil. Why? Because
2030 is hardly far away, and none of them want to simply vanish
when we reach 2030. What would you do if you wanted your company
to last? (And it's not as if an oil company would suddenly vanish
on 1 January 2031. It would have to deal with higher and higher
priced oil, and would probably lose out in the market well before
2030 came round).

Just some comments. I'll refer to co reports etc if asked.

		Best and long long life for all,

			Thomas Donaldson
