That is some dream. I was just checking out Al Gore’s presentation about his renewable energy plans that was done sometime ago and thought I would make a comment. It to me is a very ambitious statement. Very bold indeed. Looking into to it one has to understand what he is doing is exactly what we need. A bold statement that we are going to get something done and gather enough support so that we can gather no moss. It makes perfect sense. Sure he has the support of a great deal of people. That should be strong enough to drive the belief to fruition.
Action has to be taken just the same in other parts of the world, but I will assume that it would be quite expensive if every country attacked the issue at the same time. Assuming that a lot of borrowing might have to take place to cover all the costs. Come to think of it it is a really good idea if the countries that are already saving by using renewable energy could play a part in funding the other countries until the transformation is complete.
Some countries will go at it first I know so it should then be easier for everyone else to learn. Maybe even by then we will find some even more unique ways of solving energy problems. Listening to the presentation I could not help but notice that he said we could lose the polar caps during summer months by the next FIVE years (is that a possibility? well we’ll see in five years). He also mentioned that the rapid increase in global warming is one of the leading causes of tornadoes and lightning flashes such as those causing the California fires.
If that is the case I would suggest that we act really quickly because this is serious. Aside from the large scale renewable energy solutions there are little things you could do to help reduce your main grid energy dependence. You can indeed build your own wind turbines at home. Check this…
