We are and have been, for decades and decades. We went from mostly burning wood which has a 10:1 carbon to hydrogen ratio to mostly burning coal which has a 2:1 carbon to hydrogen to now incorporating oil and natural gas which have 1:2 and 1:4 carbon to hydrogen ratios respectively. And, yes, if you also throw in the nuclear, hydro, and improved efficiency, the carbon footprint is even less of a problem....We (for a change), folks, aren't the major problem here. China, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, and the rest of the world's developing nations - that's where the biggest increases in carbon dioxide are happening - and they ain't gonna sacrifice their prosperity for Al Gore or anybody period. Nor should they.
