Nigel Karunaratne's insight:

What heppen when oil runs out ? or


Oil is the lifeblood of the modern world, and the combustion engine its indomitable heart. In 2009, oil wells around the world pumped an estimated 84 to 85 million barrels out of the Earth, and countries consumed just as much [source: EIA]. At this rate, how long can we go on pumping fossil fuels out of the ground without exhausting our supplies?


Paradise Island



In the middle of the Pacific Ocean is Happy Island, where children can play around the clock. The island has rooms with 24 hours of Play Station 3, underwater gas powered rollercoasters, and artificial sunlight to surf and skateboard! This place is extraordinary!
