“Renewables are able to meet our energy demands”

Me, in response to More important than Fukushima:

… The alternatives are either heavy polluters or new technology which hasn’t proven capable of meeting our demands. There’s only one real solution: we have to use less energy …

Paxus, in response to me:

…In the last 5 years there has been 230K MW of wind and solar power installed world wide this is about the equivalent of 230 full sized reactors … Renewables are able to meet our energy demands AND it would be a huge help if we were able to consume less …

I’m a little skeptical, and quite a bit worried about the future, but Paxus is more of an optimist, and he has done a whole lot more research on this than I have.
