Branson outlines world powered by wind, solar power | E-mobility and renewable energy | Scoop.it
Entrepreneur Richard Branson outlined a vision of the world powered by renewable energy and said it would be "pretty dreadful" if a forthcoming UN climate summit is not a success. "It would be, I think, pretty dreadful if we don't have a big success in Paris," the billionaire British founder of Virgin Group told a gathering of business leaders in New York. The Paris conference will gather together heads of state and government from November 30 in a bid to crown a six-year effort by 195 nations w
Sass Peress's insight:

Leaders are now openly calling for ending oil subsidies. What is often not counted is the cost of spillage, security and "national" costs which are made in name of facilitating oil exploration, drilling, transport and refining. Some of these costs are often not included in the cost of gasoline at the pump. When we look at how small the renewables subsidies are in comparison, its a wonder that we have made any progress at all. Yet with perseverance and vision, many had led the drive towards renewables and our world is becoming a better place for it.
