So far, I've said or at least tried to say that every clean energy source is at least right now only part of the solution. Our energy is going to have to come from many sources. Noone wants to live in a nation that runs entirely on air power, for example. Many solutions at once is the key.
And yeah, lifestyle too. Not having people leave their computers on all night would help, for instance. Still, I'd argue that the economy and the environment would benefit from solar roofing in some areas. At very least it would reduce reliance on power companies.
Unfortunately we are economically and socially used to centralized power. Multi-source power is an idea you have to convince the public is good, and then furthermore convince them to have it going on in their neighborhood. Right now most people think of power plants as being something that is /over there somewhere/, and point in a general direction or say "well, everyone knows that the power comes from a power plant..." People don't know where their power comes from, they don't know where their water comes from and where their sewage goes. Most people don't care, as long as the prices stay low, the power keeps coming, and they don't have to feel the perceived direct environmental and aesthetic affects. When people start caring in large numbers and become mindful of such things then change will happen because with that will be lifestyle changes. Right now I don't see the slightest inclination toward such a movement. In fact, I see a movement towards corporatization of water and sewage, municipalities selling off their systems to the highest bidder, and then realizing years later the results that have come from the poor job that these corporations do (ie Atlanta).
I think you would find that its not "no one would want a nation run on wind" but rather more "not many care about our nation running on coal, as long as they don't have to see it out their window".
