34. Sooner or later
Sooner is my preference. Individual control of the source, is also a preference of mine.

Instead of living at the end of a power line, sometimes hundreds of miles from the generator, wouldn't it be nice of the electricty came from your backyard, and you were more than pleased?

Solar is one solution. It's proven to be safe, and the energy is free. It can be brought on immediately, if we just decided to do so. There are other energy sources which are 'homegrown'.

Petroleum is the real problem. There are alternatives being developed. My preference is that it too, is homegrown, and not, as we are today, at the end of a 'pipeline' that stretches clear around the world.

Nuke maybe the answer, but that would mean individuals would still be at the mercy of the corporations. And, Yucca Mountain.
