    There will be a need for petroleum engineers for a long time.

    We may eventually replace most of our oil use in cars, but we still use a lot of it for other things such as plastics, etc.

    As oil becomes scarcer, the need to extract more of it from dead or existing formations and wells becomes even more important, so if anything…the future scarcity of oil will do nothing but increase the pay and demand for petroleum engineers

    Oil reports say deposits will last for less than 100 but more than 50 years… this means you’ve got a job for the future!!

    As supplies dwindle, we’ll look for ways to extend what we have already which means… you’ve got a job waiting!

    As far as reusing an old product, we have masses the size of Texas made out of Plastic floating in the ocean which can be scrounged up and reprocessed into new plastics!!
