    I wonder how different things would be... would be now be low on battery-building elements and be touting how much oil there is in the ground and building gasoline engines as the future? Likely not, but still interesting.

    He is very pro-hydrogen at the end. But it is a good read regardless. Very exhaustively researched and interesting. Even if you do have to take his conclusions with a grain of salt.
