    New Energy’s Low Cost Is Taking The Market

    What’s Behind the World’s Biggest Climate Victory? Capitalism

    “…In 2010, coal] supplied nearly half of America’s power…This April, for the first time ever, renewable energy supplied more power to America’s grid than coal…In two-thirds of the world, they’ve become the cheapest forms of power…[and] will power half the globe by 2050…By that time, coal and nuclear will have all but disappeared in the U.S., forced out by cheaper renewables and natural gas…[It is] the biggest victory yet in the fight against global warming. Solar and wind are proliferating not because of moral do-gooders but because they’re now the most profitable part of the power business in most of the world…[And electricity generation is no longer] the world’s biggest source of greenhouse-gas emissions…

    …[Since 2016, U.S.] power plants have given off less carbon dioxide than the nation’s transportation sector, where oil continues to dominate. The turnabout owes a lot to cheap and cleaner-burning natural gas, but wind and solar farms are playing an increasingly important role…[Transportation, manufacturing, agriculture and heating and cooling homes and businesses will now] need to match the sweeping technological advances and more efficient manufacturing that have slashed the costs of solar and wind power…In a sign of where things are headed, solar installers and wind technicians are the two fastest-growing professions in the U.S. Solar now employs more people than any other power source. Wind supports almost as many jobs as gas…[and natural] gas is increasingly coming under attack…[but could temporarily replace coal] as the fuel of last resort…” click here for more
