6. We'll need to build every type of renewable like mad
and increase energy use efficiency
and increase conservation behaviors
and R&D storage; from batteries to hydronic-gravity
and grid upgrade; penetration, headroom
and smart grid
and algal bio fuel

we can reduce oil, coal and nuclear very significantly while creating jobs and tax inflows

but that would require a rational state with rational actors
