Investing in conservation and renewable resources: The only sustainable future for the world

Tonight I watched a documentary entitled Crude Awakening.  After watching it I find myself irreversably convinced that the current economic downturn will last for at least 10 years, possibly 40-50 if we don't make huge investments in more efficiently using the energy we have and also harvesting renewable sources of energy.  This is due to the fact that we will soon be, if we aren't already are, on the declining side of worldwide oil production.  If you haven't seen Crude Awakening, I recommend you rent it, just be sure to put away the knives and sedatives before you do.
