The critical thing with any major change is the speed of the change. Given slow changes, adaption is much easier. This is one reason tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes tend to damage.

In the "Venus Equilateral" series, one character forced the speed of change from the duplicator for the purpose of damaging VEs reputation, since he hated them

An interesting project not too far from me that is almost exactly what this thread is about, besides the fact it would take years to build enough plants to compete with natural crude.

I think it is time for us to look around at other countries who see the end of oil around the corner----------------

China is the world's leading country in electricity production from renewable energy sources, with over double the generation of the second-ranking country, the United States.[citation needed] In 2013 the country had a total capacity of 378 GW of renewable power, mainly from hydroelectric and wind power. China's renewable energy sector is growing faster than its fossil fuels and nuclear power capacity.

Although China currently has the world's largest installed capacity of hydro, solar and wind power, its energy needs are so large that in 2013 renewables provided just a little over 20% of its power generation, with most of the remainder provided by traditional coal power facilities.[1] Nevertheless, the share of renewable sources in the energy mix had been gradually rising from 2013.
China sees renewables as a source of energy security and not just only to reduce carbon emission.[2]China’s Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Air Pollution issued by China’s State Council in September 2013, illustrates the government's desire to increase the share of renewables in China’s energy mix.[3] Unlike oil, coal and gas, the supplies of which are finite and subject to geopolitical tensions, renewable energy systems can be built and used wherever there is sufficient water, wind, and sun.[4]

As Chinese renewable manufacturing has grown, the costs of renewable energy technologies have dropped dramatically. Innovation has helped, but the main driver of reduced costs has been market expansion.[4] In 2015 China became the world's largest producer of photovoltaic power, with 43 GW of total installed capacity.[5][6] From 2005 to 2014, production of solar cells in China has expanded 100-fold.[4]

Little note, if you're doing a cut-and-paste, you may want to edit out the tags like [citation needed] and [2]. Otherwise, a good first attempt.

Did no one see the movie Chain Reaction? The loss of bribes alone is enough to shut down the world economy. Yes, the world will adjust and find new sources of bribes, but Exxon/Mobil is the 9th largest GDP. Their payments to encourage climate denial alone runs in the hundreds of millions. Bibes to 3rdworld dictators, well maybe with the loss of bribes lowering the competition for power less corrupt government might break out ... somewhere.

Even better, make sure to mark any quotations to be easy notice, to avoid or mitigate issues about copy/pasting sources without aknowledging them.

China and India have given dates where they plan to have no petrol vehicles on the road. And the US is going in the opposite direction.
