A possible alternative is to transition to biofuels, which harvest all their carbon from the atmosphere, and can be net carbon neutral.

Productivity tends to be driven by gradual adoptions of automation, which has been a major factor for 50+ years, and actually far larger. Automation isn't going away, and will only increase in effectiveness for decades

Solar is useful in most locations, and wind will eventually be useable just about everywhere, 24 hours per day, with the use of low-resistance materials to conduct that energy, for example metallic carbon nanotubes. (MCNTs).

Personally I wish the "progressive left" could get over its deep fear of
nuclear energy, and we could build some modern reactors. Maybe when (if)
they ever get a fusion reactor that can substain a reaction...
Of course, solar and wind power is great :) Anything to stop burning
more fucking carbon..
