9. I don't disagree. In fact agree wholeheartedly. But that is not enough.

Not nearly enough to meet our energy needs.

If we were going to truly replace fossil fuelís with green energy, which pretty much means solar and wind, we should expect to see hundreds of thousands of acres covered with solar panels. This is not totally free energy. We deny the fact at our own political peril.

As a scientist Iím curious to see what new forms of life will evolve underneath all of this shaded area. And I do want to stop using fossil fuelís. But there is a cost. And it is not small.
