Yes, but at what cost!
When unleaded regular cost $8.00/gal as it does in Europe, then the US will have some motivation to institute real change.

Europe could generate all the electricity it needs from renewable sources by the middle of the century, according to a major new report
from PricewaterhouseCoopers that rejects concerns about the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources. The report concludes it is technically feasible to produce a pan-continental supersmart grid powered by solar farms in North Africa, hydro electric plants in Scandinavia and the European Alps, onshore and offshore wind farms in the Baltic and North Sea, marine energy, and biomass power facilities. The study includes a policy road map which outlines how Europe's leaders could transition away from fossil fuel-based power over the next four decades.
