Wow, you guys are serious about this aren't you. Like the commercial says... you do realize this is just a simulation, right? Okay... here we go.
1.) Its too late to do anything because by the time anyone agreed what to actually DO, we will be out of fossil fuels.
2.) None of the proposed solutions make any sense whatsoever unless someone can make a profit therefore none of them will come to fruition. Somebody has to rule "from on-high"... we still live in a sudo medieval society... kings, lords, barons and peasants... you and I are peasants and you get to keep what leftovers THEY say you get to keep so get used to it. This includes driving "on the King's road"... you will pay for the privilege of do such things."
3.) We all know who the kings are, we just like to biotch about the lords and barons... you know them, they are insurance companies, banks, automobile manufacturers, etc. They Can and Will charge you whatever they deem because they give the King payoff's to create laws mandating that we peasants must use their services, products etc. or Else suffer in the King's dungeon.
4.) Fuels and being Green... why fix what isn't broken... unless there is $$$ to be made. Imagine what kind of brown outs or rolling blackouts may or may not occur if everyone drove electric automobiles.
5.) Agrees with Tubercle and others... We've learned a lot about Nuclear energy, now its time to use that knowlege. Not sold on the Solar energy yet... wind and solar energy materials are apparently expensive to make because they sure are expensive to buy and build even a small system. Go Nuke! Go Nuke! ... who said that?
Besides... we've got a ton of Navy Nuke's that are highly trained experts so there wouldn't be any training curve to get them up and running in no time at all.
6.) See number one above...
