Human nature being what it is, while fossil fuels are immediately cheaper, they will continue to be used, irrespective of the damage they do. Punitive taxation on waste (poorly insulated housing stock, transport of goods by road, water use) to curb the profligate use of energy has got to be the first step. Technology will move on, but realistic usage is vital.I don’t agree with that Brosvile, technology will advance and energy will not be an issue.
But until then, we need to keep burning the fossil fuels to keep advancing.
you mean all those point less "green" windmills that are springing up!- I've worked for long enough in the renewables field
Yes and also more radiation than an nuclear power stationof carbon dioxide
You will be surprised how efficient these plants have become over the last few years with 90-95% conversion of energy to electricity within the plant...most of the losses being in the distribution of the power there after.- not as much as one old-fashioned coal plant..... ....
