What are we going to do with all the new runways and motorways when the oil wells run dry? We may only have 50 years before oil becomes scarce and uneconomic to use as a fuel for transport, in aircraft and road vehicles, which today we call conventional.
What will happen when the crude oil price reaches $1000 a barrel, or petrol at the pumps approaches £50 a litre?
We may end up with new runways and motorways with a short life before they become redundant.
