Are green energy myths dangerous?

 I have proposed that green energy technologies, wave energy, algae, biofuels, solar, wind, hydrogen... are not really available in any meaningful way when considering the problems of 6% oil supply decline rate and 2 ppm per year CO2 increase. The most dangerous things about the myths of green energy is that they effectively delay the real changes that are required to achieve demand reduction. I'm not against renewable energy. I'm against waiting for renewable energy to provide for continued growth. This is a hard concept to latch onto for an environmentalist like myself. Renewable energy is good, so that should be the positive focus. But, green energy has so far brought us 30 years of increased fossil fuel use. THE REAL GREEN IS LEAN!
