100% Renewables is doable, but when will we see it done?

..note acceleration of uptake of new product lines over time; smart phones being steepest… <Problem> is not just government attacks .. big three power retailers capital strike against RE … Power Purchasing Agreements (PPA)…paper that make wind farms bankable locking down a fixed capacity and/or price for power over the 20 years a project needs to provide a financial return…There’s a moral imperative and urgency that says we all must do as much as we can to save what’s left of a safe climate. In a democracy, our governments in particular don’t get a pass for ensuring we deploy RE “as soon as policy measures can deliver it”. The invisible hand of our energy market is what’s hindering the rapid deployment of solar and wind power. If it’s not government’s job to fix this failing, then whose?
