They found massive natural gas deposits off Israel a few years ago.
There is so much fossil fuel still undiscovered world wide that it can probably never run out. As technology advances, more ways to locate and harvest said fuel, the greenies (one world government purveyors) will press even harder to invent reasons we need to all have windmills, solar farms and algae hydroponics gardens and corn fields to further weaken any and all economies to force dependence on their utopian government.
