We all knew that oil couldn't last forever, but apparently industry leaders kind of missed the mark by almost 20 years. Instead of finding new supplies until 2030, an international agency now expects that we'll hit our peak in 2012. After that is a long and expensive road of increasing demand and decreasing supply.
The more CO2 we keep pumping into the air, the more acidic the ocean gets. Acidic as in the corrosive, blinding, stuff of mad scientists and evil villains. Researchers determined this week that levels in the Pacific Ocean are rising to a dangerous point, and there's very little we can do to stop it.

We don't want that to happen. “We must have zero-emission vehicles,” he says. “Nothing else will prevent the world from exploding.”
While this is great news for all the furries out there, it makes us wonder what the human race will look like in 100 years. Maybe this is actually a good thing, because man-beasts might have a chance of putting down the revolution of the super dolphins.
