If there somehow was a way to produce electrical energy endlessly (as much as we want with no pollution or environmental issues), we still can't really say we can do away with oil anytime soon b/c of the inability to make high quality good batteries. First of all, there probably isn't enough Lithium in the world to switch all cars over right? Would we just start using whatever we can get our hands on then (Nickel Metal hydrate, lead acid etc....). Also, jets and airplanes wouldn't use electricity to propel themselves so we still need oilf for that right? Is there some liquid fuel (besides dangerous hydrogen) that electricity can be used to make abundantly?
