    Nice speech and I agree with him for the most part.  My problem is he neglects to speak about the huge untapped potential of the so-called unconventional sources of fossil fuels.  They are a game changer and if the oil and gas companies have there way these new sources of fossil energy will be powering the world for the next 100-200 years.  This is the route we are going rather than the renewable one I fear.  

    These new sources (Canadian Tar Sands,- Oil and Gas Shales, etc,etc) are going to shift the production of the worlds energy to our hemisphere (at least this is the plan). The  potential damage to the health of the planet is terrifying.  Many countries are planning on stepping up production of these unconventional sources.
