It will, of course, take decades to get to an all-renewable energy system, just as it will take decades to turn over the car fleet a couple of times and get to an all-hybrid car fleet. It takes an infinite time if you never start and the sooner you get at it, the more likely you are to have your own industry making this stuff.
