    Without energy, nothing exists including us.
    From the birth of our being we sought energy in the form of food to fuel our bodies, so that we may hunt and gather for more food energy.
    Most other applications of energy sought from those times were sought and obtained to allow us easier ways to fuel our bodies with our survival contingent food and water.

    It is ironic that the fuel we most heavily depend on today to produce the food energy we need in order to exist...is bankrupting us, enslaving us, killing us, and holding us, and we all know why.

    It does not make sense to me, common or otherwise.

    Solar Power and Windmills won't break those chains either.

    3 sq miles of Solar, powering undulating radio frequency waves ( the Kanzius effect) on sea water burns hydrogen to create steam to turn turbines producing electricity with emmissions in the form of water and provides resources are virtually free. (SOLAR ELECTRICITY/ SALT WATER)

    Enough KWs to power the West Coast.

    From geothermal to solar, wind to wave, tidal to slow current, there are enough energy solutions out that that do not create havoc with climate and agriculture to completely eliminate the use of fossil fuels. And most are far cheaper than nuclear.

    Hydrocarbons have been the savior of humankind on many many levels.

    Oil is OK.
    Gas is groovy.
    Coal rocks.

    You're a twit.

    Horses were once the prime mover of all things. Their day has come and gone, soon will be the same for fossil fuels.

    And I think I've told you that is also my wish.

    But the transition from horses didn't result from the government shooting dead all the horses.
