To look at Peak Oil Another Way….

A writer states:

Say you’re throwing a Super Bowl party for roughly 20 people, and you’ve got a 24 pack of Coke from Costco in the fridge. Word gets out about your party, and 35 people show up. By midway through the second quarter there’s 2 cans left, but plenty of pretzels and chips to make everyone thirsty. Further complicating matters is that all the local grocery/convenience stores are out of Coke. What do you do?

1) Drive way out of town to hopefully find a store that a) is still open and b) has some Coke in stock.
2) Serve some fruit punch, iced tea, juice, and/or water in place of the Coke.
3) Do nothing, because those two cans should probably last the rest of the party.
