15. I don’t see where that necessarily follows…

i.e. I don’t see that it is necessary to cut “all fossil fuel use within a couple of decades,” and reduce “our energy supply to perhaps a tenth of what it now is…”

While some explain how it is impossible, various European countries are successfully converting much of their electrical generation to renewable sources today.

There’s more to the energy picture than electrical use, but you have to start somewhere.
