    Exactly, not to mention that the pollution it does create is far more easily cleaned up/filtered out when it is in one stationary place rather than millions of small polluters moving all over the place.

    You mean God didn't give us electricity?

    Maybe it was Prometheus? Damn this is all so confusing.
