    Watching various documentaries throughout the years it seems the Romans idolized cocks. In the homes of many Romans it was found they had statues of cocks, carvings, paintings of cocks. Sayings, like "Great Jupiter's cock!" Why the cock issues?

    Not Roman, but maybe a little?

    While not directly related to “global warming” it’s interesting to note the increasing competitive position of so called green power. Note it’s becoming competitive not because of subsidies but competition has lowered costs. https://www.forbes.com/sites/dominicdudley/2019/05/29/renewable-energy-costs-tumble/
    It’s critical that to maintain our modern society we have dense, reliable and low cost power. It doesn’t matter the source be it coal, oil, gas, nuclear or any other, it just must meet the criteria above. We see major oil companies such as Shell, BP and others investing in wind and solar power. It may be that to deliver power for transportation , electricity may win out......IF the market dictates. If so these energy companies are positioning themselves to play a part.
    Regardless we will always need oil and gas for chemicals and plastics. Let the market and march of technology bring us to a better place. It’s worked well for us forever.

    Electricity will never have more than a tiny share of the transportation market unless there is a quantum leap in battery capacity and an infrastructure that makes it as easy to find a recharging station as it is to find a gas station. Or if a way is found to deliver electricity wirelessly. Nikoli Tesla had invented a way to transmit electricity wirelessly but the technology was lost when his financial backer pulled out.

    You’re correct. However it appears the leaps are being made. Tesla’s and other cars have 300+ mile range now. Also charging time are dropping quickly. Again Tesla is rolling out charging stations that will fill a battery in 15 minutes. The density of battery storage is growing faster than I ever expected.
    One of my coworkers owns a new Model 3 so I’m getting first hand information from Tesla through him.
    We seem to be on the cusp of an exciting time for power technology.
