The way we live now with 7.5

You’re correct about our dependence on oil to produce fertilizer, plastics, and solar panels, but we aren’t being “lied to” about the efficiency of wind and large-scale solar compared to fossil fuels for producing electricity. Improvements in battery technology make wind and solar cost effective for the first time, even without government subsidies or other incentives.

We should try to conserve our fossil fuels for all of the other things we do with them besides generating electricity and powering our vehicles. In the long run, hydrogen fuel cells may provide the best alternative to diesel and gasoline for transportation, unless future battery technology or nuclear power becomes even better than future hydrogen fuel cells.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
