    Heads in the sand? Describing yourself by chance?

    At present, we have no viable means to be 100% renewable in the next 33 years. My head is not in the sand, I am realistic.
    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.

    There are certainly technological issues to be solved with Renewables but the fact that you don't know what those Solutions are doesn't mean they aren't out there or they aren't going to be coming it is also unlikely that renewals will provide all power in the future there will still be people burning firewood just as they do now. The objectionable part in all of this is you have a president pandering to the people that work in a dying industry instead of telling them to get out of that industry and get a job based in the future.

    Substituting reason for sarcasm just tells me what kind of person you are.

    So big energy might oppose it. What people would be stupid enough to cast votes in support of big energy wanting to continue to pollute the world and capitalize on our shared worlds finite resources?
    No, our population is much smarter than that. Clearly.

    We could do it in 10 years if we instead invest in renewable 'fossil fuels'. Just think, all of that carbon we're putting out is being right now converted into future oil.

    But, nuclear is the future anyway. We should wasting money on these other pipe dreams.

    There is a very common misconception that oil companies sell oil, the reality is that oil companies
    buy oil from ether external sources or internal division, and refine that oil into the finished fuel products they really sell.
    The way I see it big energy will be the path that Humans move forward in a sustainable path.
    The refineries buy all the surplus electricity that will be present as alternatives move forward, and
    store that energy as carbon neutral fuels, to be sold in existing distribution networks.
    The current price point is about $90 a barrel, where the greater profit will be in making their own feedstocks.

    There are many challenges to such a utopian dream, all of which derail the rather naive belief that humans and cultures could achieve such a result.

    I realize that science, and scientists, can't quantify humans, so they just ignore them.

    Over the last 100 years, there are Nations and cultures that have failed to reach even the most modest of modernization goals common among more advanced industrialized countries.

    Expecting these nations to make some quantum leap into the future is a bit fantastical.

    Further, the transition period to 100% renewables globally will take investment beyond the wildest imagination of even the most pessimistic among us.

    That channeling of resources could potentially have a cataclysmic impact on the global economy that the projected "24 million new jobs" couldn't begin to counter.

    To think it all could be done by 2050 calls into question the motivation for such a claim, or at least at minimum, the sanity of the authors and scientists behind this claim.

    There is little question a transition to alternative energy will take place in the coming decades and centuries.

    It will be rational and reasoned efforts that will drive that transition, not agenda driven groups using energy discussion as a means to an end.

    OMG...

    You serious?

    If there was a solution, now, the corporation that has it would exploit it for profit!
