I wouldn't worry all that much about it happening

The local movement is so much stronger than perceivable from surface research. Local food, water, power, internet, education... they're all headed our way like a runaway freight train. Sure, there's the question still on whether it'll be in time or not, but at least that wheel doesn't have to be re-invented.

And when they come to the forefront market, they will be better in every way, including cost so rapid adoption won't be an issue.

What we need is to create the environment that will best accept them. Promote non-traditional funding methods that circumvent the banking / institutionalized investor systems. Keep pushing on how the banks are causing the tyranny we all live in. Stir that pot. Maybe even join the boycott movement I mentioned below.
