everyone is leaving out the most important part of the problem. world population. there is no way eveyone on the planet can live like the avarage american. a year or so ago national geographic they pointed out we would need 10 more earths for just the people in china to live like us. also china was increasing their oil consumption 10% a month every month thats a lot of oil. there is a group working on hydrogen called the phoenix project. they have a web site and were interviewed on talk of the nation. i think their plan could work it is low teck.

That really depends on how you define "standard of living." Personally, my conservation efforts have granted me a GREATER standard of living, as defined by life satisfaction.
