80% renewable by 2050? Only if we have successfully been reduced to a third-rate economy, as the greenies would like us to be. Rather, we will hopefully have outgrown our juvenile obsession with CO2, and be harvesting our vast hydrocarbon fuel resources, which have thus far propelled our economy and standard of living, with all the benefits to health and the environment that comes with such bounty.
