Will the market cast fossil fuels into the dustbin?

An April 26 Forbes article claims that the writing is on the wall for fossil fuels and that they are already overpriced when compared to renewables and it will just get worse for fossil fuels in the coming years.

From the article:

Solar and wind energy have the potential to meet global electricity demand 100 times over, and the costs of these renewables are collapsing so rapidly that fossil fuels could be pushed out of electricity generation altogether by 2035, according to a report by a U.K. think tank.

The original report can be found here:

From the report:

The technical and economic barriers have been crossed and the only impediment to change is political. 

All that’s left to do is to push our politicians to change the policies to make this happen even sooner. Or elect new politicians who will do the right thing for future generations.
