How to Power the World without Fossil Fuels

How to Power the World without Fossil Fuels | "3e" | Energy - Ecology - Economy | Scoop.it

Mark Jacobson says he can run the planet solely on wind, water and solar energy. First stop: New York State.

 

Three times now, Mark Jacobson has gone out on the same limb. In 2009 he and co-author Mark Delucchi published a cover story in Scientific American that showed how the entire world could get all of its energy—fuel as well as electricity—from wind, water and solar sources by 2030. No coal or oil, no nuclear or natural gas. The tale sounded infeasible—except that Jacobson, from Stanford University, and Delucchi, from the University of California, Davis, calculated just how many hydroelectric dams, wave-energy systems, wind turbines, solar power plants and rooftop photovoltaic installations the world would need to run itself completely on renewable energy.

Which civilization will win and which will lose — the one based on fossil fuels or the one based on renewables?

 

It may be difficult to see through all the smog currently engulfing Beijing and other Chinese cities, but there is a green energy revolution taking place in China. The Chinese push for green technologies — which stands in stark contrast to the dithering U.S. approach — is good news if we have any hope of decarbonizing our industrial civilization.
