How do we convince the government that there's oil on titan that we can harvest for use back on earth?
would they be replaceable?
and its not that we ran out of oil.
we have shitloads left.
the thing is that its too expensive to dig it all up because of the hard to reach oil fields.
wed probably have more than enough for pplastics/medicine etc for a long fucking time.
but it will be costly.
correct me if im wrong
>Oil us at $30.00
And heading for USD 20 a barrel.
Just one tiny war in the Middle East and we will once more taste USD 200 a barrel. Just because it is cheap today there is no guarantee it will always be cheap. In fact noone outside the rulers in Saudi Arabia knows how much oil they really have left. The day they run out there will be a big surprise and a bigger jump in price. And most likely also a big, big war. Again. Just like the previous 5000 years.
Even if there was, it would cost far greater to harvest and transport back here than it would to just harvest deeper from our own oil wells, many of which we've already declared too costly to harvest from.
I belive that all the oil stuff was an example of a resource that can be colected from titan.
well in case of oil even if there was the best oil in the solar system it wouldn't worth the trip
But about other resources that can be found in titan?
There's anything that could justify colonization?
Like hellium 3 on the moon
Thouse shitloads os hydrocarbons may be used to civil construct by making plastic with it.(not to bring it to earth but to make structures there.
There's if I remember correctly supposedly methane which is essentially natural gas, though getting there and transporting it here within certain costs would be practically impossible.
