Should also add that less demand for oil in the Western world indeed drops the price but makes it easier for emerging countries such as India / China to buy it all up and fuel their industrial economy for a cheaper price, effectively using up the oil anyway.
I think most agree climate change exists. What we can't agree on is why? Is it simply the planet going through its natural progression where era's of time experienced natural warming and cooling periods? Or is it man made? Yes you need regulations to operate a business and keep the environment clean, but do we allow the government to over regulate to the point where companies are charged a carbons emission tax? This driving the prices up for the average consumer. A world without fossil fuels would be great, and it's certainly worth investing in, however the technology just isn't there yet and fossil fuels are much more reliable and cheaper at this time.
