I'm not one to despair, though. And seeing as I'm not scientifically minded, I hold out little hope of inventing a solution. What I am good at is ideas. I've come up with a number of temporary solutions that, I think, will keep us going until the real experts can come up with some viable options.
- Chop off the top of Mount Everest and see what's under there. In fact, chop off the tops of all major mountain ranges, because I believe they're holding as-yet undiscovered reserves of fossil fuels. And if they're not, well we'll have to find some other way of keeping my car running.
- Wind energy, revisited. Apparently one of wind energy's cons is that the wind doesn't always blow strong enough. Picture this: We round up all the illegal immigrants, make them stand next to the turbines, and blow. That way we can also monitor the illegal immigrants round the clock, because I hear most of them are criminals escaping the other criminal drug lords in Mexico.
- Tax incentives for people who buy and use horses as their main mode of transport.
There's more where that came from, but I'm protecting my intellectual property and saving it for my letter to Congress.
