So the original poster's premise to offer an opposing view to the statement "all we have to do to solve our problems is to put solar panals on our roofs and buy an electic car", is correct. Personal transportaion is a very small portion of our total energy consumption as a civilization. If everyone does a little, we will gain... a little.
Our whole society model needs to change. People will ride bikes to get around. And do work for survival instead of holding a "job".
Yeah,it's hard to reflect the past into the future.What a ride!
