Name: Thomas Franz

From: Florida

Bio: Common sense.

Area of Expertise: Advocate/Voice of the People

Topic: Economic structures

Headline: We will not run out of oil

Nutshell: The network future will not run on gas generators to produce electricity.

Vision: People say we will run out of oil one day. HA! What a farce. The economics of the world would and will not support the use of ALL the oil in the world. As oil dissappears the price of oil will go up and up until no one is willing to pay.

The last oil would be so valuable no one could afford to buy it, therefore protecting the oil still in the ground.
