Is ethanol a renewable resource, then? If so, why don't we plow under all of the Brazilian rain forest and plant corn? Archer-Daniels-Midland would be pleased as punch about that, and according to you there is no pollution nor any environmental impact.

I'm not advocating for any particular power source, but I am saying that blanket statements like "no pollution" and "do not mess up the environment" are absurd. I have cited several examples already, which you seem to be ignoring.

I'm also saying that any solution we come up with will likely have to use more than just "the big fusion reactor in the sky".
