I choose a Clean World

What do YOU choose?

  1. I dream of a world like Germany is trying to create. A world without fossil fuel or nuclear power. Where in combination with a smart electrical grid, mass transit, energy efficient vehicles, conservation, and recycling, we have a energy created from the sun, the wind, geothermal, hydroelectric, and biomass. Surplus electricity would be stored in batteries, used to pump water into reservoirs for peak power demand or cloudy or windless days. Fuel cells would also be used where surplus electricity would be used to create hydrogen. Each region and municipality would develop their own resilient plan, like Germany is doing for energy independence, resilience sustainability, efficiency and reliability. The November 2012 issue of the Journal of Energy Sources as well as the March 2011 issue of Energy Policy lay out the plans to do this on a global scale. We are not lacking the science, engineering, technology, money, raw materials or energy sources to do so. What we are lacking is the political will because the American public has been brainwashed to believe that we need fossil fuel, nuclear power and centralized electric power utilities. These same energy companies have bought the politicians in Washington, D.C. and in most state capitals around the US. Germany is not “starving and freezing in the dark” nor is it’s economy being wrecked by the plan to convert to 100% renewable energy for their economy. Fracking and nuclear power, are both too dangerous, too expensive and totally unnecessary for our energy needs. The Germans are proving that.

  2. I dream of a world without fossil fuel and nuclear power. I dream of a world that is more resilient and self reliant. A world with a smart electrical grid, where solar, wind, geothermal, hydroelectric, fuel cell, tidal, biomass fuels, conservation, energy efficiency, mass transit, energy efficient vehicles will power our energy needs. We have the technology, capital and raw materials to do this. If you read the November 2012 issue of the Journal of Energy Sources or the March 2011 issue of Energy Policy, we can convert the world’s energy supply by 2030 to 100% renewable energy without fossil fuel or nuclear power. The only thing we are lacking is the political will. Germany is embarked on such a plan. They will shut down all of their nuclear plants by 2022 and be off of all fossil fuel by 2050. Some municipalities are already self sufficient now in energy for their electricity, heating, cooling, cooking, lighting, industrial, farming and commercial need for energy including transportation and not just mass transit. Germany contrary to the propaganda of the fossil, nuclear and centralized electric utilities is not “starving and freezing in the dark”, nor are they wrecking their economy by transitioning to renewable energy technologies. If Germany can do this the United States can do this.
