What Will It Take In The US?

"Here's a "tale of two cities" - or two countries, actually. Germany and the United States. One country is preparing for a future in which their children will breathe clean air and lead the worlds economy - and the other is preparing for a future in which their children will choke on polluted air - and fall behind the rest of the world in the global economy. Can you guess which is which?"

This quote from Russia Today, on this video with host Thom Hartmann from March 2012.
Germany is shutting down 17 nuclear reactors in the next 10 years, and is investing $260 billion dollars in renewables. That is 8% of their GDP. The goal is to get 80% of the nations energy from renewable resources.

80%! Can we possibly do that? What happens when presidents try to take us in this direction?
