The more the merrier.To the person bemoaning the economic turmoil that would be caused by the cessation of producing and using fossil fuels; get a job in the green environmental companies. Get a job cleaning up the mess that fossil fuel has caused. You'll find it's a lifetime project and stop having so many damned kids. There's enough humans in the world already.
