No retrofit ... NYTimes, 4/15/2014
There is no "retrofit". There is only change. Electricity to power everything directly makes a whole lot more sense than gas fumes, trucks, pipelines, refineries and torches. And we can produce the electricity less expensively and "stop smoking" by replacing coal, oil, gas & nuclear plants with deep geothermal ones ... within 30 years we could be energy independent FOREVER. We do need some research and investment (remember Apollo and all the spin-off benefits?), but all the energy we need is less than 10 miles from everywhere on earth, straight down.
