47. TRANSPORT FUEL NONSENSE
Another misconception which needs to be cleared up is that coal, natural gas and nuclear are not suitable transport fuels.
Coal is an excellent transport fuel. In fact, it was the ONLY transport fuel for many decades. Locomotives and ships can run on coal, no problem.
Natural gas is also a good transport fuel. Taxi fleets and buses run on natural gas throughout the world.
Nuclear too is transport fuel. Nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers and the French train system show how nuclear can be used to move people/things around.
Clearly, there is going to be some serious retooling involved, particularly in backwaters like the U.S. which are behind the times. But the main point stands: we're not running out of transport fuel any time soon.
