So your answer really is to continue allowing billions in subsidies to the fossil fuel industry, and ignore the problem in the hopes that it will just fix itself? As I stated previously, those fossil fuel "sources of energy that actually work" don't have that much working time left before they are just a distant memory.

Also, I think you are giving American ingenuity an extremely short shrift. The fact that wind and solar won't currently power the grid, doesn't mean that they can't eventually be developed to a point where they will power the grid. There is a huge business opportunity here for bold capitalists and rugged individualists - for the man who refuses to blindly follow the fossil fuel herd like the rest of the talking point sheeple.
