OK then, another idea, along the lines of "peak oil lite", maybe it will be good, maybe it will be a load of pants...

Here goes...

Feel free to add some suggestions for changes / more Q's

-------------------------

The fact that we will one day no longer use fossil fuels to power our everyday lives is not in dispute. However, the world today relies on the ability of geologists to extract fossil fuel resources in ever increasing amounts. This is fundamental to economic growth, the fact that we will use more energy this year than last year.

But what if we can't do that any more?
What if all the fossil energy we could get next year is less than the amount we used this year?
What would happen to the cost of fuel, as competition to use it intensifies?
What if renewable energy and fuel efficiency cannot bridge the gap?
How would this effect the economy?
What if this were to happen during your lifetime?
What if it were in the next ten years?
Or the next five years?
What would this mean to your everyday life?
How would you get to work?
Will you have a job?
How will you heat your home?
How will you pay your mortgage or rent?
How will you get food to your table?
How will you cook it?
