There is, however, significant disagreement among energy experts as to the viability of Jacobson’s 100 percent renewable roadmap. Many scientific organizations — such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the International Energy Agency –have concluded that our best chance at averting climate change is to use a diverse set of energy technologies that include renewable energy, nuclear energy and carbon capture storage.

Sounds familiar but more specific towards nuclear.  Nice update on Jacobson's follies.  Gotta love it when even NOAA is on board.  Get a clue Cali on Diablo Canyon before it is actually shutdown.
