Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I never thought YOU were. I would just prefer to get started building renewable energy ASAP and think this can best be accomplished by just doing that and leaving fossil fuel subsidies alone until we have enough  renewabel energy to be self sufficient without fossil fuel.

Economically, the benefit of having no fuel cost is ALREADY driving fossil fuel out of the market. But there are frictions, like the time required to convert transportation to renewable energy, the time to convert industrial processes to renewable energy and the time to develop sufficient recycling technology so as not to exceed resource limitations.

Learning to prosper in a world with a declining population is also a necessity - unless we wish our children and grandchildren to be part of a giant involuntary population reduction.
