If your "alternative energy" cannot power the building of its own infrastructure, then it's not an "alternative" to hydrocarbons; it's a virtue-signalling luxury you can afford only through massive utilization of hydrocarbons.
The only proven alternatives to hydrocarbons are mass death in winter, mass poverty, immobility & deindustrialization.

Until you can survive & thrive for an entire year without consuming any hydrocarbon energy or products, don't pretend what you have are 'alternatives'.
I highly recommend @AlexEpstein 's book The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels for an eye-opening and sobering look at how indispensable hydrocarbons are for our well-being & how delusionally hopeless all the supposed alternatives are. Very different from the usual junk media's take!
