      ...2050 goal of 50% renewables. They are on the right track, but they've got hurdles to overcome.

      One more thing: For most people wind power DOES require miles and miles of power-lines. What we need are upgraded ultra-high voltage lines that "leak" far less power than is currently the case. Solar thermal electricity generation at utility scale will also require miles of transmission lines. Not everybody can put solar panels on their roofs or in their backyards.
