“…[Roadmaps for 139 different countries to be powered by 100% New Energy by 2050 have been proposed by Stanford University Professor Mark Jacobson and colleagues. It would be about 37.1 percent wind and 67.6 percent solar and the rest from] geothermal, hydroelectric, tidal and wave combined…[The plan breaks the the 139 countries into 20 regions with each using] the most appropriate energy storage resolution…[Technically, it] is possible…but it comes with a great level of risk and demands a significant amount of effort…
…[One of the biggest challenges is] unwillingness to adopt the change…[Many] would resist…[And for] the plan to be effective, a major structural and political change is required…[to give innovators and entrepreneurs] access to the right resources and markets, so that commercialization of sustainable solutions can be made possible…[Solar, wind, and hydroelectric power are there New Energies that would provide most of the 100%. Transitioning will have impacts and face hurdles, but it turn back] global warming, increased pollution levels, ozone layer depletion, damage to public health, wildlife and natural habitat and much more…It’s high time to address these issues before it’s too late…” click here for more
