Huh? If currency is rapidly devaluing then why is inflation today the

Replacing fossil fuels by ANYTHING, including nuclear fusion as well as
fission, would be a HUGE change and require many trillions of dollars; but
then COVID19 bungling by the USA has undoubtedly already cost many
trillions of dollars.  A trillion here a trillion there, and pretty soon
you're talking about real money.
