Less jobs. Less wealth.

===============================================================================

The Obama administration is setting aside 187,000 square miles in Alaska as a "critical habitat" for polar bears, an action that could add restrictions to future offshore drilling for oil and gas.

Humans have been lighting fires for energy for time immemorial. Maybe we need to learn a new trick.

I like lighting fires just fine!!!

If you think you can live without burning anything, go for it.

Remember, you cannot use or eat anything that requires any sort of fire or is made by using any sort of fire.

Scarcity is the paradigm that we have to free ourselves from. If it is possible for me to type on the piece of plastic and wirelessly interact with the rest of the planet then I have to guess we can do better than fire. But that will require a Nikola Tesla type mind not this fifty two year old marijuana smoking vegetarian who cannot code c#. RJay i confess I still need fire to light a joint -

I know this wasn't directed to me, but I just feel I have to say that
there is a great quantity of coal, oil and natural gas left for the world
to use. Until hydrogen fuel cells or whatever comes along, we have
to use what we have in the short term.

When I was very young there was propaganda about the population
explosion. We were told the great number of people being born on the
earth in the coming decades would be the ruin of life as we knew it.
It was just bul#sh%it. The same is true of this global warming stuff.
I wish western New England could get some of it. Longer growing season,
smaller winter heating bills.





As far as wind power being free, it isn't. Solar isn't free either.
I heard recently, but haven't double checked it, that the current
amount of power that wind and solar combined contribute to the
U.S. power grid is 1.5 percent. Increasing this to, let's say, 20.0%
would COST a fortune. Wind wind turbines and solar panels don't build
themselves or maintain themselves.

Another handy use for fire!!!!

If you like conspiracy theories, I believe that new, pollution free, power sources have already been discovered.

The government along with certian private organizations, Have developed quantum energy sources.

They can extract, on the molecular level, energy from the vast unbelievable pool of energy that holds the universe together.

This pool of energy is so great that in the wrong hands, the planet as we know it could be destroyed.

So it is kept secret.

Also, current power sources allow governments and certain individuals to wield power over the rest of us.

You make a convincing argument that solar and wind would create a lot of jobs.
