ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts required in the transitioning of the U.S. to a country totally dependent on renewable energy resources. Topics include trading currently dominant fossil fuels for achieving transition; replacing coal with wind and solar power to generate electricity; reducing oil consumption by driving electric cars; requirement of grid-level energy storage in substantial amounts; Iowa's rise in the utilization of wind energy; and carbon sequestration in forests.
