Binou. I am the first to say that we are horribly dependent on fossil fuels in our modern lives but that is not an argument for ignoring the moves we can make today to reduce that dependence. Heating our homes and running our cars as mentioned in your first post, are two examples where we could significantly reduce our energy needs and then use renewable energy sources. We are not ( as far as I am aware) in the business of manufacturing cars, power cables and paint. It is up to the jurisdictions that do to decide how they generate their energy and the materials they use. I gather that Germany, who do make these things, have progressive plans to be 50% dependent on renewable energy by 2020 and 100% by 2050. The future is not in furthering our ability to continue using fossil fuels, which are only going to get more expensive, but in looking at how we can improve our self sufficiency in energy needs, thus also reducing our vulnerability to outside influences.
