The change will indeed come, sooner or later. Trying to transition sooner might be very, very painful... but transitioning later will also be very, very painful.

So, why not transition while we still have built up wealth to burn?

I don't believe we can replace fossil fuels completely. At least we can lessen our reliance on it, so the eventual fall from the fossil fuel peak (peak cheapness) is less painful.
