    it doesn't matter whether or not fossil fuels/extractive fuels cause global warming or have hit peak or anything else as a reason we need to shift to sustainables - we purely don't have enough water to keep using them.  If my choice is going to be water or electricity, water or natural gas, water or gasoline I'm going to choose water.  Ditto if the choices are energy or food - and right now unfortunately it's energy AND food considering how much energy the corporate food system uses.  Electricity is for comfort.  The human race has lived without it before and if necessary can again (that's the entire species - individuals will die without it) - but we won't have to if we shift our sources while there's still time.
