    Many of our favorite habitats and species are imperiled because of the extraction and burning of fossil fuels. Can we transform our civilization to renewable energy at sustainable scales to prevent this?

    The New York Times has an interesting look at how this process is happening in Germany and around the world. The progress is mixed, but somewhat hopeful.
