Cheap energy

Quoting 1154. zampaz:

Okay, I'll accept that.
How 'bout that swirly thing over Texas, it's going the wrong way!
Questions to consider that we could consider best left for my blog or yours;
Skeptics Safe Haven- Free Speech
By "cheap" do you mean inexpensive in terms of money, or in terms of the the amount of energy we have to put into energy production for a given amount of return?

Money and energy are equivalent, so in your terms I mean both.

In terms of "running out" do you mean we are consuming a finite resource?

When will we "run out?"
We will "run out" when we don't have enough supply to meet demand. Gas prices arguably reflect that we are already running out.
Soon enough that any sooner doesn't matter?

All of these are valid questions; I'm not looking for an answer to, but you should be able to answer them.
In reality money does not exist.
It does, in the form of energy.
Control and distribution of resources exists in reality.
Is the ideological paradigm of the Homo Sapiens faith based currency congruent with reality?
Yes, because it is a proxy for energy.

Will this ideological paradigms have to evolve for us to survive GW as a species?
No. Our survival will depend on adapting to an ever decreasing amount of energy.
