19. Of course not,
But what are you trying to say? Could it be that for now and the foreseeable future we are going to have to rely on oil, coal and nuclear energy? There isn't going to be a magic overnight solution to our energy needs?

The truth is that we will still have to insure a reliable and uninterrupted supply of oil. We still have to burn coal. Not every can afford to switch over to solar, wind and hybrid vehicles. Maybe some ice will melt, Polar Bears will have to adapt, Caribou might die and yes, wars will be fought over oil. But you are seeing the problem 1st hand. PEOPLE are going to die!
