Silly article because it completely misses the obvious. Our electricity produced by wind and solar has been doubling every three years since 2000. By extrapolating to 2050 there will be so much excess energy converted to methane as a transport fuel greenhouse gas emissions will have dropped by 100%.

Silly respoder because so far the increase of wind power has resulted in an increase in the sales of natural gas backup power. If wind every starts to ACTUALLY threaten the sales of natural gas, the government subsidies will stop and the wind industry (which is actually a subsidy harvesting industry) will die.
