Now I only suggested that the cars be fully electric, for now, so you could just plug them into sockets in your garage or where ever, since that alone would greatly reduce pollution, even if oil and coal are still the original sources of said power. Also, I'm not sure whether you just said you believe in evolution or not, so I will add, evolution is proven in the fossil record and through observing organisms with much, much shorter life spans(and thus, generations), such as flies, bacteria and viruses. I admit that alternative energies, with the exception of water power, aren't advanced enough yet to completely take over for fossil fuels, but I'm not suggesting we completely switch over yet, just that we need to start transitioning as soon as we can, while further developing alternative energy technologies. That way, we won't be could off guard and be devastated as a civilization when fossil fuels do run out. I also know you didn't mention pollution, but it's part of the same big argument. One last thing, since you mentioned welfare, I hope you at least support equal marriage rights and/or universal healthcare.
