Our economy is built on HC fuel because it is far and away the cheapest source of energy in large enough supply to support our needs. The switch will only occur when we are finally forced to adopt nuclear. Nothing else is even close. Solar would be nice (it's nuclear too and in a strange way I guess HC is too!), but the equipment costs are much too high. It takes energy to build equipment, and not a whole lot more.

It takes work and power to fabricate equipment. We still conserve energy.
