Black and white thinking isn't helpful. It assumes we have no control, we can't change the status quo, and encourages apathy.
Instead, I suggest:
'Renewables wonít supply all our needs YET. PROGRESS will have to be made QUICKLY.'

Then it's a call to action, not apathy.

The fossil fuel and war industries have been holding us hostage for over a hundred years, creating apathy and inaction in the public by buying up and squashing every invention that could have alleviated GHG emissions.

No more of that predatory and self-destructive nonsense. We can't wait apathetically for the corporate world to take the lead. We're pushing them ... hard.

To survive this era, humanity must become much smarter about this new kind of energy and then take the steps necessary to compress the third carbon era and hasten in the Age of Renewables before we burn ourselves off this planet.
It isnít black and white thinking, it is reality. Electricity isnít suited for everything and renewables canít supply all our electrical needs. Things like nuclear will have to be considered if you are serious about drastically reducing C02  emissions. China is by far the largest producer of renewable electricity from wind and solar yet 60% of their power comes from fossil fuels and they still produce a quarter of the worldís CO2 emissions.
