One day it will be more expensive to get fossil fuels out of the ground than the energy we get from it. I am certain that we will want to continue using electricity. Can we?
Currently fossil fuels run most (if not all) the machines to build any other machine or facility to generate electricity or to maintain those machines and facilities. Directly or indirectly to a large extend there are fossil fuels involved here. Additionally, the metals and materials required for construction are based on the energy we get from fossil fuels. Solar panels need energy to be made. Wind generators need energy to be made. Large water power plants need a lot of power to be maintained. Nuclear facilities cannot be constructed without construction machines, plastic, steel, and concrete. All this is driven by fossil fuels. Is there a plan for continuation of electricity generation without fossil fuels? Is there even ONE electric bulldozer in existence that can do the work that is done by the current large scale construction machines?
What's the plan? When do we start transitioning? Have we already started? How?
