[ExI] The sky is falling!

What I used to hear from various news sources was that by around 2040, we
better have oil well on it's way to being replaced by renewable energy
sources, or else civilization would have to *very painfully* tighten it's
belt (but the "human die-off in the billions" idea is new to me).

I've read that there are massive offshore oil deposits along the northern
Russian borders, but that developing and maintaining them will be so
expensive that it could never be confused with the current cheap energy we
enjoy.  I suppose the Russians will get their chance to indulge their
military spending urges when they (or those they lease the deposits to) get
them tapped.
