9. There isn't a single reason we aren't running the entire thing off of solar.
Of course that would put the energy speculators out of business.

And we'd have to live in smaller houses, so there's less to heat and cool.

Of course people would have to drive less in smaller, slower electric vehicles - which is a non-starter here in the US where people buy their self image from Dodge and Ford and Toyota and Honda....

Wanna see blood in the streets revolution? Try and take the high performance gasoline powered automobile away from Americans. It is the Holy Ghost in our real religion:

The Church of Unbridled Consumption.
