Riding the Peak Oil Wave

Peak Oil. It's been around since oil met science, but this generation will come face to face with its consequences. Perhaps no other generation has had as much to lose or gain as those alive today. What are you doing to prepare? How will you make sure your genes go forward? What kind of world can we build to replace this one?

WTF?

I was recently passed on my way to work by an angry guy in a Hummer. He flipped me off because I was only driving 60 MPH in the 4th lane of six on the freeway. I do this because I use my commute to think, and going 60 conserves gas - costs less for me. His license plate said it all - "GR8 XS".

There are tons of resources for those interested in talking about Peak Oil and arguing about the when and why of it. Whether anybody wants to admit it or not, we are at the doorstep of Peak Oil. I know - it is my business. I have watched it coming since I was a kid, subconsciously getting psyched and ready for it.

But what are people doing? I mean, talk is talk. Peoples lips move, sounds come out, eardums move and sounds turn into speech again. But what are people actually doing to prepare for what could happen? Are there really women gutsy enough to think about this? Or talk about it? Most will not - they change the subject rapidly and retreat to anything else. My wife is a premier example, God bless her. And yet it is coming whether we want it or not. If you are reading this, it is YOUR LIFE we are talking about! I just sent my parents to a small town to make them better able to weather the changes that MIGHT happen soon...

Nobody knows yet how hard it will hit us, which is directly related to how fast it happens. We are already in a war over oil control - be patriotic enough to admit this. There are all kinds of websites and blogs talking about the potential problems. And lots of waay left-leaning commune-types pushing their specific solutions. Most of these involve us becoming a simple agrarian society. I am not buying that - the technical genie has been out of the box too long.

So what is everybody doing? What can we do to make our childrens world better when cheap energy (oil, coal) has been the cornerstone of civilization for over 200 years? Where can we go now? What do each of you want to do about this, or because of it? How angry does it make you that your parents and grandparents pissed a lot of cheap oil away just taking vacations in an air-conditioned RV? Oil that they will never miss, and that you might be asked to die for?

Very good...

My wife is the same way. She thinks it would be "fun" to live on a farm. What do we tell our children? I dont want to terrify them. I want them to have a future full of hope.

I think there will be a cultural shift to toward greater efficiency, sooner than most people expect. That said, the Hummer drivers will probably be the last to get it. We have them here, in Newport Beach, California ... with neither snowstorms or even a dirt road to be seen. Actually, the cool think is apparently to keep them detailed, freshly waxed, and drive them on beautiful paved roads in some parody of an "off-road vehicle." Sick, but we know it can't last.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
