It is not an answer economically, ecologically, or sustainably,
or even in the ability to deliver (500 GW/year substitution rate
every year, for the next 40 years, or twice that for 20 years).

Continuous belief into a failed steampunk technology to magically,
eventually deliver is touching, but rational it's not.
