Many people, rightly so, believe that Oil based energy is an old and dirty technology that needs to be replaced. Many believe that Oil is running out
and the world will come to a halt in the very near future.
This may be true, but most of the solutions that I've seen are either currently unusable because they aren't efficient enough, like solar, or the
technology isn't quite there yet, like hydrogen fuel cells.
So, I would like to hear some of the ideas that are out there for a transition technology. Something that would easily get us from a full reliance on
Oil to something else.
To start it off, I would like to suggest that we should begin converting existing cars to natural gas. It is a cleaner fuel and most cars can be
easily converted to use it. It doesn't get quite the mileage of gas but it does give a greater range than most suggested electric cars right now.
