At a certain time in the future, I would not care if we burned fossil fuel or not if the costs settle down and it is abundant in a non damaging way. I just see no way to transition in the next 15 or 20 years. It's not happening, so I am not planning to worry about it any time soon. All the big oil companies are funding projects with wind, solar, tidal power, etc. Good stuff but not able to meet the demands at price point at the present time, but they want to insure themselves a big piece of the future, because sooner or later, we will transition.It all depends on what Big Brother does with all this. It's not just Biden, but the entire Democrat party is all for getting rid of fossil fuels, and they will be the ones to actually call the shots. Biden is just a puppet really.Hope you are wrong. Too early for me to guess.
Unfortunately it will probably happen sporadically and differ throughout the nation depending on the state.
Places like my state started that transition in the 1990s. We started building one of the largest wind farms in the nation in the 90s. We also started shutting down our coal fire plants. We started shutting down the last one in 2005. It's probably finished being shutdown by now.
We get our energy from water, sun, wind, natural gas and have one very small nuclear facility in the farthest eastern corner of the state in the middle of nowhere for the few farmers out there.
The number of hybrids and fully electric vehicles on the roads here is very high compared to a lot of the other states. We have charging stations all over the place for fully electric vehicles.
Changing over to non fossil fuels for sources of energy isn't hard. In fact, it's easy.
All it takes is the will to do it. That is what's lacking in a lot of states in our nation. The actual desire and will to do it.
We have the second lowest electric rates in the nation. We generate more energy than we use so we sell it for a profit to other states.
