Solution to Fossil Fuel Depletion Problem

I don’t know why no one has thought of this simple, five step solution to the looming fossil fuel depletion problem facing the world. It’s simple, sustainable and I’m going to share it with the entire world right here, right now … for free.

  1. Gather up all plant and animal matter currently living on the earth and in the oceans.
  2. Bury it all between 7,500 and 15,000 feet underground, preferably beneath an ocean.
  3. Wait 300 to 400 million years.
  4. Drill down to it and pump it all back out of the ground.
  5. Repeat.

Follow these five simple steps and we will have a never-ending series of 150 year supplies of cheap, abundant fossil fuel.

(Implementing space-based solar power would actually be cheaper, quicker, environmentally friendlier and every bit as sustainable … if we do it before the current 150 year supply of now-not-so-cheap fossil fuel runs out.)
