Explain and defend.
I assume you mean that no alternative energy generation/distribution method can replace hydrocarbons. Why not?
Not sure what geology has to do with it.

I call Shotgun! (Do you get what i'm going for here? If not look up the origin of the phrase.)

Solar requires too many components be mass produced by other energy sources. It's energy output does not come anywhere close to current infrastructure consumption.
Calrid: Fusion uses sea water and lithium, two substances that will last for millions of years, or "forever" in the case of seawater pretty much. Ok it's not perfected yet but every year brings us one step closer. Not only that but only the working parts of the reactor are radioactive, meaning there is no considerable waste fuel (waste products helium and lithium) and no risk of melt down at all, even if you hit it with a 9.6 quake, in fact lithium is reused so it's actually pretty efficient Get out more and read about alternative energy sources and stop asserting that technology will not save us from the peak oil problem. How do you know?

The evidence for it multiple different forms is overwhelming. Literally just use google once.
Bizarre waste of time thread.
