Guyincongnito,

There are a few problems with your scenario.

  1. Nuclear power simply can't scale, no matter how much its boosters insist otherwise:

  1. Solar, wind, etc. depend on fossil fuel energy for their manufacture. Waiting until we're already way behind the eight ball will be far too late to afford a shift. We need to make those investments now, assuming there's still time. It appears we're already in peak oil today.

  1. Biodiesel really, really can't scale. George Monbiot has an excellent essay on what's wrong:
