When we run out of fuel, the big petroleum companies will release the technology they\'ve been suppressing for years. We have water restrictions of varying degrees all around Australia, they were relaxed in Sydney recently, after our desalination plant came on line (at least I think it\'s finished), and we had some significant rain early this year.
I understand that there is still a lot of oil, it\'s just very deep down. The reason it\'s still there, it costs a lot of money to go deep. But they are developing new drilling technologies that make it economically viable.
As for running out of space, that is not a problem over here, other than Antarctica, we are the most sparsely populated continent, the problem we have, is that everyone wants to live on the coast.
