we are now capable of weaning ourselves off oil

"The researchers approached the conversion with the goal that by 2030, all new energy generation would come from wind, water and solar, and by 2050, all pre-existing energy production would be converted as well."

Germany has been making a huge investment in solar energy, and generates about 18,000MW from wind.  Denmark gets about 1/2 its energy from renewable sources.  But recent economic downturns have started to pinch investment in renewables, so we'll have to see, and insist on pushing renewables.
