A 100 % Renewable Possibility
There are some individuals in the scientifical community that dare to think in a new way despite of criticism. Every new wave of technology needs its own Guttenberg or Einstein. Only time will tell if Professor Mark Z. Jacobson and Research Scientist Mark A. Delucchi will be becoming such messengers of change in the sector of energy technology.
They are the authors of a study of Stanford University 2009 that finds it possible to produce all the energy that is globally needed with Wind, Water and Sunlight (WWS). No coal or nuclear power, oil or gas is needed. No biomass is needed. Only those three natural, renewable sources are enough for all the warming of houses and water, electricity, transportation and traffic.
This sounds too good to be true. But the researchers have their firm calculations. With the WWS -technology already existing we can generate the energy needed for the whole world. If we want to. And the cost would be the same or less than with coal, oil and nuclear. Without pollution or bad accidents that risk the lives of thousands of people.
