Stanford U. Professor Ken Caldeira tipped me to do 60 or 90 second explainers as part of practising to boil down arguments to the bare necessity.
As I said earlier, I do think we need renewables, but certainly NOT in the current context, and preferably as little wind as possible. I’m going to explain this in another video.
That being said, I’m trying to create a bridge from pro-nukes to “tentative” anti-nukes with the “renewable” visibility in my videos.
Germany established its energiewende policy so as to cut CO2 emissions 40% by 2020, and 80%, or more, by 2050.Fortune magazine praised Germany for taking “huge strides toward renewable power.” They said: “From a technology perspective energiewende has already been a stunning success.” According to the German AG Energiebilanzen, renewables accounted for 29.5% of Germany’s electricity production in 2016. This is higher than most countries, except for those that get most of their electricity from hydro.
