Well said, Peter. Much work has actually been done on the forefront of transitioning to a 100% clean energy economy. Mark Z. Jacobson and his team from Stanford University, for example, have put together renewable energy plans for each of the 50 states. If you're interested in learning more, check out The Solutions Project.
