As Unaffiliated said, I do think fusion will be the end game. Problem is, as you said, it's perpetually over the horizon. I don't know as much as I would like to about fusion, but what exactly is the biggest set back for fusion?

I personally have hopes for Solar energy, but the efficiency of that seems to be the biggest problem (or that's what I understand, someone correct me if I'm wrong).

I do wonder how long it will take us to explore and embrace an alternative energy source. Infrastructure is lagging, and the politics is quite intense.
