Wanted: Alternative, cheap, renewable, clean and efficient; these are words I often see when reading opinions about energy. Sounds great, right? Let's extend this line of thought to its natural end, namely energy for all, plenty of it, cheaply and cleanly. Is humanity ready for that type of resource?
I hope I am wrong, but I believe that unprecedented indulgences and an accelerated loss of personal responsibility would engulf mankind. Game over.
This New Year, I guess I'll continue to recycle, reduce and reuse as best I can and be aware that some hardships (like this year's fuel costs and hockey injuries) might just be blessings in disguises.
