It seems Thomas Edison accidentally missed that one then...
Well... We are too dependent of electricity to get rid of it, and I can think of no other substitute... so... I guess we'll end up killign ourselves with our own technology... unless if a sulution for power better than electricity is invented. I doubt electricity will kill us as fast as fossil fuels will though...

(What about antimatter or dark matter? We're a long way off from that, but aren't those two massive power sources?)


Please feed the trolls. XD

Antimatter is a negatively charged amount of matter that doesn't exist in our galaxy. It is highly unstable near regular matter and could implode taking a ton of nearby matter with it

Scrap that idea... I've been watching too much Startrek Enterprise... All their fancy antimatter power cores... I've got to remember, fiction, not reality...

Antimatter is a probability but right now the problem is keeping the molecule stable. It is said that a single gram of antimatter has enough energy to power New York city for a week.

Alternative fuel sources is something we should consider looking at. Fossil fuels, the basis for our oil that makes gasoline takes thousands of year to form. Oil is formed by the decayed carcasses of animals in certain conditions. This makes sense in that all lifeforms are carbon based. At the rate we use our fossil fules, scientists are right in saying that it is a finite source of energy. The electric cars/hybrids were a step forward but of course you need to park where the juice is. The ethanol option is another step that would be beneficil. Of course there is the fact that the oil companies think they are going to lose money and they are getting stingy over that. I think alternative sources is the next step.
