a taste:

governments react with draconian measures — such as steep and sudden domestic price rises or severe restrictions on personal mobility with accompanying disruptions in value chains and significant economic dislocations. By 2020, the repetition of this volatile three-step pattern in many areas of the energy economy results in a temporary global economic slowdown. … Although change must and does occur, the turnaround takes a decade because large-scale transformations of the energy system are required.

They know better than that. You don’t get the energy to grow, from sustainable sources, in those quantities. Not when you’re at the peak when you start trying.

You might – if things had crashed completely, that might give you a low enough base…..
