It’s all going to be about real-world economics.
Alt. energy price comes down by leaps and bounds, demand goes through the roof.

The real crux point will come as production costs and efficencies for these actually out-strip the cost-effectiveness of coal, while demand stays high because of increasing costs of getting power from the grid, public awareness and perceptions that global warming is real, and the beautiful fact that consumption is NOT going to see a sizeable or even significant decrease.
