OIL AND GAS DEPLETION

OIL WAS MADE ... A 100 MILLION YEARS AGO.

THE EARTH MADE ... ABOUT TWO THOUSAND [SIC] BARRELS.

WE HAVE USED ABOUT HALF OF IT ... SINCE 1950.

WE ARE STARTING TO USE ... THE OTHER HALF

VERY, VERY, VERY ... QUICKLY.

Editorial Notes: See original article for full graphic versions. The author, Stephen Hamilton-Bergin, has written no 19 bus, a science fiction novel which "begins in 2070 and gently gives the reader a hint of what the world has gone through in the past seventy years. It makes some startling short term predictions. How accurate will they be? Published in 10 volumes." He has also published the non-fiction book The Truth about the War and Oil.
