Not Just a Boondoggle, but a Pricey One At That

    A thought occurred to me while reading this, namely that the reason fossil fuels are so very cost-effective is that they are fossil fuels, i.e., the raw materials which produced them have been subjected by Nature, at no cost, to processes which are ridiculously costly to replicate artificially. The implication is that no alternative energy source which requires investment to produce can be as cost-effective. I look forward to the comments.
