Brace yourselves, fellow Earthlings, for a reality check more potent than a triple espresso. The era of oil-guzzling dinos, er, fossil fuels, is nearing its extinction event. No meteor necessary, just basic physics and a dollop of common sense.

Think deep-sea diving for bathtub-sized puddles, with a price tag that'd make Scrooge McDuck wince.
