For a lot of people, the smell of diesel is the smell of productivity. Mobility. Getting work done in remote places. Lots of work. Lots of horse power. Machines that get thing done. Robots with human operators. We could magnify our power exponentially.

It is the smell of the power to change your world.

For a lot of people, the smell of gasoline is the smell of freedom. Cars. Trucks. Going places. Meeting people. Expanding your world. Convenience to the max.

Coal and Steel grew up together. They are brothers. They changed the world.

Fossil fuels will be missed, but they are messy and probably not meant to be used on the scale we have used them and continue to use them.

We can’t stop using them.

But we have to stop using them. The way we use them today isn’t sustainable.

We’re addicted. We’re going to experience withdrawal symptoms.

The only way we’ll be able to stop is to change our minds.
