- They still need to rapidly come up with an alternative for electricity
generating. Some of us Kentuckians are tired of having our mountain tops
removed for coal to run power stations. Electric cars, e-assists etc
will still be using an energy source that is not clean or green.
This is all about power and money. We are at peak oil no matter what

Have you heard about the tar sands in Canada? They give us oil due to the NAFTA and they cant stop giving us their oil or they will be sued no matter how much ecological damage it may be causing. Most of the Tar sands oil that canada produces is given to US. This is all about controlling the worlds oil supply and making money.
