But as Yoda once said, "The fear of loss, is a path to the Dark Side....the shadow of greed, that is."
Frankly, I'd rather live in a world where solar and wind power is the norm, where cars are made to not run on gas, and then what oil and coal we DO have left, can be used just on those rainy days (sometimes literally) to provide power. We also have to face the possibility that fusion power may not be possible or at least not viable to use. So we basically will be forced into that choice one day. Really what needs to happen is we should decide now, so we can prep for when that day comes in advance, rather than be caught off guard.
