I have no doubt that many of the powers-that-be wish to emphasize the continuing, possibly even perpetual importance of fossil fuels, particularly oil and natural gas. But to the extent we insist on these resources as critical to our economic future ... (a) we will support dictatorships, and bomb third world countries, to ensure access to "affordable" supplies; and (b) we will extract CO2 from the ground (placed there a by several years of photosynthesis), and put it back in the sky where it came from, returning our worldwide ecology to something closer to the atmospheric conditions of the Paleozoic. (When it was hot, and hard to breathe.)
