9. Conclusion
We dug ourselves into a hole by choosing one solution for all our problems: fossil fuels. All of these fuels add to a solution. Biodiesel has the most potential short-term effect, but cellulosic ethanol and electric are excellent components. But we want to avoid choosing one solution and winding up back in the same place.
