Fossil Fuels (Oil)

What's the issue with running out of fossil fuels?

It's not like it's going to be tomorrow and it's all gone.

The amount of fossil fuel is going to be monitored and prices and alternatives will arise. Eventually supplies will decline, but so will demand (as prices rise).

Fossil fuels are not like trees, we don't need them to provide oxygen. In fact, they seem to have no other use, and are not directly replaceable, except on massive timescales, before which we will be able to manufacture and utilise alternatives (and we already are).

The media should stop feeding the panic.
