All of this is sure an interesting topic. On fuel cells, isn't the challenge obtaining the hydrogen? It takes a lot of energy to break water into its components. Not sure what the best sources are.

 

I've wondered what might happen if the entire world went to solar, for example. The CO2 greenhouse effect would be reduced, but we'd still be capturing a lot of solar energy instead of bouncing it back to space. It may be a fraction, but it's still capturing more energy than in past history. The only sustainable option is to use less energy. In our case, it's driving to a spot, but sitting there for many days, enjoying it, absorbing the sunshine and gaining vitamin D  B).

 

Anyway, the same argument could be made for wind (taking energy out of the atmosphere on a huge scale has to have impact), waves (same thing), nuclear (storing the waste, running out of fuel at some point). All seem to be a lot less impact than the greenhouse effect, but there's still impact. I hear most countries are having fewer babies, so maybe there's hope.

rubberlegs you hit on a lot of great points.

I think everything has an up/down side we

just need to find the right one.

 

They're working on it I am sure.

Sure, normal expenses are deductible.  But the oil and gas industry is heavily subsidized by being allowed to explore and drill on public lands at ridiculously low rates.  No other industry has that distinct advantage.

Really?  I'm interested in seeing some statistics comparing/contrasting per acre lease bonus payments and annual lease rates and production royalty rates paid for exploration and production from public lands vs private lands in the same region.  What you say does not square with my understanding.
