Nuclear AA. Nuclear.
Lot's of boats are electric. Oil burns, boils the water to make steam, steam turns the turbine, which turns the generator, which provides the electricity which powers the electric motors which turn the shafts which etc.
Lots of transportation is now electric. But someone somewhere is burning something to make that electricity. Economy of scale improves the overall efficiency but doesn't solve the innate problems associated with burning shit.
