The fun really starts when they use natural gas to make gasoline.

This also throws a monkey wrench into the symbiotic relationship between wind energy and natural gas. Without inexpensive natural gas backup wind energy projects become much less viable.

We'll be sucking really hard on the straw when we're making synthetic "natural" gas out of coal. By that time the economy and the environment will be in ruins, but they'll still be people looking for the next technical fix.

What we really need is to reduce the population of people living in unsustainable ways. Unfortunately the people living the least sustainable lifestyles control the markets, the politicians, and the media. The sociopaths of the 1% would starve half the population and enslave the rest to protect their own wealth and power.

Here in the U.S.A. increasing numbers of us are volunteering for duty as wage slaves and supporting the destructive and unsustainable schemes hatched by obscenely wealthy criminals simply because we're afraid these masters might otherwise throw us off the ship.

And this fear is well-grounded. The least powerful among us have already been abandoned.
