This is where you are kidding, right?  You want to alter nature?

Being able to regenerate at the same rate, or faster than, it is consumed
has nothing to do with being "renewable".


capable of being renewed; replaceable; "renewable energy such as solar
energy is theoretically inexhaustible"

We already have the infrastructure in place to use oil.

I thought you weren't concerned about the costs but more about the impact
and moving to another source?  I will bet that we will not run out of oil in
