As for electricity, gas and nuclear are the way o go right now. Anything else is just way too expensive. Banks/clients look at $/kW for funding. Wind and solar are 2-3x more than gas to produce electricity.

anything will be cheaper if it's subsidized half a trillion dollars in less than 2 decades by the government. technology to extract and refine will be much much better, transportation will be much better, methods will be more efficient...etc...beca​use literally over 400 billion dollars in government capital has financed the fossil fuel industry since the early 90's, and almost 200 billion has been invested in nuclear. vs 5 billion invested in all renewable energies combined, that means wind, solar, biofuel...etc...over the same time period as gas/oil. (200 billion for nuclear is since the 1940's).

the shift is already occuring, with rapid growth in the solar industry since 2006, and emerging technologies, solar is starting to break the traditional cost barriers which held fossil fuels more affordable.

2 decades from now (hopefully sooner), i can foresee a majority of american homes with solar panels on the roofs, feeding one giant network of power.

What an utter load of rubbish. Clearly you don't work in the global field of the power industry. My projects range from in Chile through to Sudan/Nigeria, Trinidad, Europe, Middle East, the US, Australia etc. all is the same. Solar/wind is too expensive and unreliable. Not everyone gets the US subsidies. Other countries have a much better push on renewables but it is expensive. When I do lenders engineering work for a bank, they won't lend money if you do not make a return on investment.

I know, right? That particular area has been hit pretty hard a couple of times since 1999.

I was saying to my wife earlier that we never have to worry about that here, but then i remembered what happened out in western Ma 2 years ago.

Never say never.

Mass is actually due for a sizable seismic event in the area. We're apparently on a fault line that is due for activity..

I grew up in NC where we had regular tornado drills. I've only been caught once in a building during a tornado - it was a Kmart, actually... pretty scary to see vehicles fly. Been through several major hurricanes, though.

Cameron's Line, right? I can't find any info about seismic predictions, though.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.
