Lets hope so!

The renewable energy is not future it is now. The entire world will be powered by renewables by 2025, or no later than 2029. Progress is happening very rapidly now.

Renewable? Yes. Sustainable? Not currently. Need more innovation to improve wind generators and reduce footprint of solar cells.

Natural gas is the true renewable and it will be powering most electric vehicles, just as it is now. All living things die and are soon natural gas.

I forgot to mention that all living things create more natural gas while living than after they die!
