  1. Re: Capitalism. No, capitalism doesn’t collapse. It adapts. When it becomes economically viable to no longer use oil, alternatives will present themselves.

    I’m looking at a remote property with no grid power. It will be cost-prohibitive to bring in a power line, so we’re going solar and perhaps gasification. The capitalistic principles at work.

    Capitalism is the solution, not the problem. Your own reasons for making your changes were economic – capitalistic. CT prices were too high, so you adapted. Well done!
