Some people thinks that this means we can just give up on renewables. As if in 20 years time, when we are reaching the crunch points, we will had have no technological development at all. Heck, if massive electrification happens and we get, say, 70% of our energy needs from low-carbon sources, we have already bought ourselves time for further technological development, and that's a huge boon already.

Yeah but it's a huge distinction. We don't have the technology to finish the job but we do have the technology for the next steps for a decade+

Yep, no excuse for not going full speed ahead.
