The Economic Cost of Eliminating Fossil Fuels

Yes, the economic cost would be crushing. But way worse would be the human toll. The current world population could not be fed, clothed, and warmed if we eliminated all “fossil fuels” from our energy portfolio or even if we only reduced them significantly. Wind generators are energy hogs that use more energy for their construction than they ever usefully produce. This energy needs to come from somewhere as well. If we only installed energy-negative contraptions and eliminated all the energy-positive ones, we will necessarily go hungry and freeze. How are Millenials coping with that?
