Happy to have been part of a great online TBLI panel discussion on the opportunities to profitably move to a sustainable future, triggered by the terribly misleading film “Planet of the humans” with Sandrine Dixson-Declève, President of the Club of Rome, Kingsmill Bond of Carbon Tracker and Hunter Lovins author of a “Finer World”.
The key messages were:
- Supplying all renewable power with existing technologies is possible using less than one 1% if the world’s surface.
- peak oil demand in 2019
- Dying oil-, gas- and coal-industry is aggressively denying climate change and the competitiveness of renewables, while holding on to subsidies without which oil, gas coal could no longer exist.
- Purely profit-based Texans are choosing renewables over oil, gas, coal and nuclear, with renewables including storage (baseload compliant) being available for $3 cent/kWh.
- EU unveils the world’s most climate-ambitious stimulus package
