Me too.  On top of that, diesel and gasoline are pretty reliable.  Though some people may argue about "renewables" the fact is that it is all a matter of time-frame.  Solar power, for example, is not renewable.  Once it is all used up, it will not "renew" itself -- and this "using up" process is quite independent of our usage of it, as it happens.  The time to depletion may be somewhat long, but it still has a time to depletion.  Oil and Gas, however, is a "renewable" resource and as a mere physical and chemical process it is occurring at this very moment.

The "greenies" simply have bad colloquial language usage.  This is probably as a result of a failure to understand even rudimentary physics and chemistry and operating on miniscule time-scales.

On the other hand, the aliens could be quite pissed when they return to retrieve their fuel stash and discover that we have used it all.

Be decisive.  Make a decision, right or wrong.  The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who could not make a decision.
