Hehe, good points! It seems most environmental wackos can never see the BIG picture. Yeah, solar is great, once you use a whole bunch of fossil fuels, and toxic crap to make them. Do people think the wind makes the wind turbines? I'm sure a lot of fossil fuels are used to melt down the metal used in their construction. Also, couldn't a huge field of those things be dangerous to migrating birds and such? Let's also not forget the ecological impact hydroelectric damns have on the ecosystem they flood out. There are a lot of man made lakes that flood out fertile farm lands, and all the fertilizer in the ground causes huge algae blooms, and ends up chocking the lakes, and killing any fish that may have been there. This results in huge expense and resources to clean it all out of the lakes. I think the future energy source will be the largest we have yet to tap into. That would be the frozen methane gas that is in huge quantities underneath the ocean floor. Right now it is dangerous to try to go after, because once exposed it rapidly evaporates back into a gas and rises to the surface, expelling large amounts of methane gas, a green house gas, into the atmosphere. If there was a large enough earth quake under the ocean, that exposed a lot of this frozen methane, the gas released would be far worse than anything we could imagine doing ourselves. A large release would start warming up the earth, which would cause the ocean temp to rise, and more of the frozen methane would become volatile and start to turn back into a gas. There have already been releases of this gas, and more lately from ocean drilling. There have been frozen chunks of the frozen gas retrived from the ocean, and it looks like a peice of compacted snow, however if ignited, it will burn like a piece of wood soaked in gasoline. There is more of this stuff than all the fossil fuels combines (natural gas, coal, wood, oil) People are so worried about our cars, and factories. Well, mother nature can do a whole lot more damage, in a whole lot less time. A large volcanic eruption, large releases of the frozen methane gas, all could do far more harm.

The methane gas is also suspected of being the cause for the disappearances of ships and planes in the Bermuda Triangle. When the gas bubbles to the surface, it can cause ships to loose their ability to float. Ocean drilling rigs, which float on the surface, often sink when they expose the frozen methane. When the gases rise into the air, if a plane were to fly through it, it would ignite it, creating a huge fire ball, which would destroy the plane. That's how these planes and ships vanish without a trace. It all makes to much sense, and these gases actively escape in that area.

Not to mention that we could run out of stuff (Plastic is nonrenewable, which means we run out of oil, were fucked, since it is made out of petroleum products) and that EVERYTHING WOILD COST MORE when a commodity turns low.
