After the Paris Climate Agreement, many
nations made commitments to increase the share of renewable energy fed into
their electric grids. This is a critical step in turning the corner on climate
change. More important are the utilities, banks and business leaders who
finance and develop utility-scale solar and wind energy projects.
China is now the
clear front-runner in renewable energy development, and every nation can follow their
lead. In just 10 years China has rocketed ahead with a dominant global market
share in wind and solar!
Buckminster Fuller called
for a “design science revolution” that elevates the standard of living
for all. It’s a “clean energy revolution” that dramatically shifts our
electric power and transportation system away from fossil fuels to renewables like solar, wind, biomass,
geothermal and hydro. In cooperation with Japan and Korea, there is call for
the Asian Super Grid, which connects this growing renewable energy production
to distant cities and industry.
We are currently
seeing how climate change strengthens storms in Nepal, India and Texas. The
answer requires a clean energy revolution – on every continent and in
every nation. Starting now!
