You can switch and shuffle around your source of energy all you like, but you're always gonna hit the cap of the most limited resource to make that technology possible
Pretty fucking obvious
The only thing that looks remotely promising is Thorium-Fluoride reactors, but that won't really help with the water crisis, liquid-fuel crisis, food crisis, etc
Too many people, people. Malthus is back in style!
The decision doesn't have to be logical; it was unanimous.
