Expand the Role of Renewable Resources to Scale Back Fossil Fuels

We need to use more renewable resources as opposed to burning fossil fuels for obtaining energy. Global warming is clearly in effect, causing each summer to be warmer than the last. To adapt to a warmer world we will need to reduce the burning of fossil fuels and introduce many new ways of obtaining energy from our renewable resources. Obviously, there's no way fossil fuels can simply be taken out of the picture, but reducing the amount burned would be helpful. Burning coal provides the U.S. with roughly half of its electricity, so i doubt we can just stop using it, and oil plays one of the biggest roles in our economy today meaning that too must not be ruled out. What we need to do is use our renewable resources together with our fossil fuels to slow the rate in which greenhouse gases enter our atmosphere.
