" Mini-nukes in the near future ... I read where India is working with Westinghouse on small units that can fit in the back of a pickup truck and are air cooled. "

Wonderful, anyone want to guess how long it takes before some fool places a bomb on one of them?

These horseless carriages are never going to replace our horse and buggy transportation system. The Gummint is always trying to push their tekknowlgy onto us. They say that horseless carriages are the future ... that they'll be everwhere. Well, I say bull puckey!

Horses git us around just fine, and unlike them smoke belching, noisy "cars", their road apples can be picked up, used for fertilizer and as fuel for burning.

The very idea that folks will cotton to these oil dripping, clattering monstrosities is just ridiculous. I say, keep to the old ways. Do everything possible to make sure America stays in the 19th century. Horses were good enough for my grandpa and his grandpa. We don't need no cars.

Besides, cars will put buggy whip makers and blacksmiths out of business. Livery stables will close and glue factories will suffer.
Ain't it bad enough we got those infernal steam locomotives stinkin' up the air!

I'm not saying EV's will not have their place, but until we quadruple our electric generating capacity or make solar panels with higher efficiency rates, EV's are going to be a small percentage of vehicles. Unless .Gov steps in and mandates them.

The market will eventually find an alternative to "fossil" fuels and it will not be due to some beuracrat's pen.

In all the alternatives to fossil fuel full circle emissions must be considered. It's no different than the ethanol that is being forced upon us though a huge farm lobby. It's subsidized.

Fuel economy is lessened and the fuel circle emissions to process ethanol is equal to or greater than burning what used to be gasoline.

I understand the theory we will not have crude for ever. Improving mass transit in our major cities seems to be a much better solution. Mass transit, something the oil companies began buying up and shutting down in the 50s and 60s.

The nukes still scare me. Clean? I guess so until something goes wrong or until you have to dispose of the waste product. Fukushima, still belching radiation into the atmosphere and the pacific ocean.

New solar field recently built near my house in FL. The faint red arrow points to my house.

The site was an abandoned citrus grove when FPL bought it. It remains to be seen what effect, if any, this has on my electric bill.
