Why Are We Waiting?

Imagine we muddle through the end of oil badly. Billions die. Coastal cities are flooded and abandoned. However, eventually we will implement clean sustainable energy. Solar energy is free once you set up the collectors. Imagine quiet streets, just the swish of air. Imagine plants growing everywhere there is asphalt now, on the tops of buildings, on roadways. Imagine air than smells like it does in the national forests. Imagine being able to fish and safely eat what you catch anywhere there is water. Why are we waiting?
