In our stampede to go all in for electricity we are courting disasters that we are not yet aware of.
To start with, we have no idea what removing 3.5 million cars and trucks from the transportation pool will look like, and to do it between 2030 and 2050 is insanity. Amazingly there is absolutely no backup plan to ensure transportation, heating and other niceties on which we all depend, the grand plan is to eliminate all fossil fuels, terminate all internal combustion engines, provide all forms of heating and cooking from the grid.
Personally, I am working very hard to create enclaves where life can continue as before. The shining light right now is renewable energy from local feedstocks. Dairy farms by themselves can stay alive with biodigesters, biodiesel feedstock from camelina, soy and other silage fodder to convert to clean biodiesel. We should adopt cleaner diesel blends as a transition between the urban plug-and-play and the rest of the country with its multiple needs, like tractors, milking machines and such.
I live in fear for my children, we are ramming an untested utopia down their throats.
