"No technical-fix assumption is more common nor more unexamined than that renewable energy sources can be substituted for fossil fuels, thereby enabling abundant energy affluence while eliminating the greenhouse and other problems. A case to the contrary is detailed in Renewable Energy Cannot Sustain A Consumer Society (Trainer 2007, and updated in Trainer, 2008. See also Trainer, 2009 and 2010.)"
