    We live in an era where new methods of reducing or manufacturing energy are coming to the fore. There are so many new methods that were not around in our parents times such as nuclear fission, wind, tidal, thermal and solar to name only a few. Our appliances, vehicles and machines are more energy wise than in the past also. Less V8 petrol guzzling motors and more electric cars than in the past. Many households generate their own (solar) energy requirements and sell their excess back to the grid too. We are also encouraged to use water more sparingly and buy foods sourced closer to home than previously. I have faith that humanity will be able to generate enough energy more safely in the future too. We should be addressing environmental issues such as loss of rainforests and ocean pollution more fervently though.

    More wind turbines that create electricity to split water, separate the hydrogen and release oxygen. Hydrogen can then be added to domestic gas supplies and piped wherever you need it - into local CNG generation plants to reduce transmission losses.

    Most of the infrastructure is there already, and is pretty easy to implement now.

    Use less. NO ONE needs a V8 for their personal use or needs to keep the water running while brushing teeth. Solar water heaters are remarkably efficient, even in "cold" climates.

    FIRST OFF - acknowledge the fact that there is no 'energy problem'. And then go after those money grubbing idiots who keep playing all of us for fools.
