With the scarcity of oil, is it worth the trouble to study petroleum engineering?

Hi,
with the scarcity of oil, is it worth the trouble to study petroleum engineering?
in 10 to 20 years in the labor market will be reduced, so is it worth the trouble to do this ?
I wanted to become a petroleum engineer, but now I hesitate on the future of oil

    Oil companies have been studying their industries for years. Only Greenpeace and other "Environmental Whackos" have/are blocking them from even drilling SAFELY.

    Oil isnt as "scarce" as you may think. Only in areas that are hard to reach. Or prevented FROM reaching. Then you have "global warming sycophants" trying to scare industries from further studying it.

    oil is plentiful and petroleum engineering is a good future. oil will still be used for many years for products other than fuel.

    The U.S. Geological Service did a study and found there is more oil in the western two-thirds of the U.S. than in all of the middle east. The problem is the environmentalists that won’t allow drilling. If the Republicans get in office, maybe that will change.

    Oil is not scarce, but claiming that it is helps to raise the price. Petroleum is a technology of the past. Engineering in alternative fuels would be better because that is the future.

    there are still untapped reserves that have yet to be discovered, so they will need experts for decades yet!
