We liberals and environmentalists told you "Don't drill, baby, don't drill!" But you didn't listen.

"Disturbing evidence is mounting that something frightening is happening deep under the waters of the Gulf of Mexico—something far worse than the BP oil gusher.

"Warnings were raised as long as a year before the Deepwater Horizon disaster that the area of seabed chosen by the BP geologists might be unstable, or worse, inherently dangerous."

When did you convert from gas-fuelled to electric Rick?

When an all-electric car at a reasonable price becomes available in California or Hawaii, I will buy one. Right now I have a low carbon footprint gasoline car. The plot to kill the electric car worked. Now we have to revive it.

seems that one of the few viable options forward are electric cars on a nuclear power grid although i would like to see an electric car charged by solar cells

Nuclear power is infeasible. If the governments didn't subsidize it, no corporation would do it. The costs are greater than the revenues. It can't compete with wind and solar. Two costs not figured in the subsidized plants are 1) insurance against disaster, and 2) long term storage of wastes.

I'm just not sure if solar and wind by themselves are too terribly feasible either given our energy consumption.

Nuclear power station on the moon and a long cable (or virtual cable).

A few months ago an article in Scientific American showed how future energy needs could be met by solar, geothermal, wave/tide, and wind power alone.
